Owner description: The Gatlinburg Overlook is located on the Gatlinburg Bypass which runs between the Gatlinburg Spur and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Gatlinburg Spur runs between Pigeon Forge TN and Gatlinburg. The Bypass is accessible from the Spur or from the National Park. There are four parking areas on the Bypass. You can exit your vehicle and take in the views. We recommend the 2nd and 3rd parking areas. From the overlooks, you will see the entire town of Gatlinburg with its majestic mountain backdrop.

“Could use some upkeep”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Nice way to view the entire city from the top. Looks as though it has been quite awhile since the trees in the area have been taken care of. I imagine the view may be nonexistent if they do not do a little maintenance. In this area you can find a lot of better mountain views by visiting the national park.
