“The BEARS are out and about right now in early April”
Review of Newfound Gap Road

Newfound Gap Road
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018

We live in the area and during a recent drive through the park we encountered quite a few 'animal traffic jams'. The bears are just awakening and easy to see. Some photos enclosed. These are right by the road, not hiking. Just STAY IN YOUR CAR when this close.

A scenic mountain road that takes you through towering forests, along streams, past hiking trails and to towering overlooks. A beautiful mountain drive.

Easy trip to the center of the Smoky Mnts. It is an easy drive and there are a lot of spots to get some good photos.

This is one of my favourite scenic drives i have ever been on! There's lots to see and loads of great places to pull in and take photos, the road to cling mans dome was closed which was a little disappointing but still a lot to see and a few little posts about the history. You also get to see a little of the Appalachian trail (if you do a hike here) Would definitely recommend.
