Love this trail. Made me want to get a bicycle.

Great drive through the Smokies

Good for an easy afternoon stroll.

Newfound Gap Road is a gateway to a variety of hiking adventures. From the hustle and bustle of downtown Gatlinburg to the remote areas away from crowds, there is something for everyone. We are sad to see Chimney Tops closed due to the fires, but enjoyed Clingman's Dome and the scenic drive. Our next excursion will be to do the Alum Cave hike to LeConte and to do the AT to Charlie's Bunion. The main vistas and short hikes with great views can get crowded, but there are many side trails to quiet streams too. Enjoy!

I love walking on the different sections of the Greenbelt. So many neat places along the way. Great place to walk, run, or bike, and see lots of nature.

We are on the greenway all over town all the time. They are great! They are all paved which makes it perfect for a bike ride, walking or jogging. There are restrooms and water fountains along the way and places to picnic. Just make sure you use your etiquette and announce when you come up to pass someone and don't fly around blind corners. There may be someone on the path. There have been people road biking using the greenway as if they are on the road. They go way too fast where people are walking and having a good time with their children.
Other than the road bikers, the greenways are great!

Favorite section of the Nat Park. Views are magnificent, as you are enclosed by vistas throughout. Parking lot can be jammed so get to the park early.

Up and over the Smokies...bisecting GSMNP with tremendous views, wonderful overlooks and amazing trails (including Chimney Tops, Alum Cave to Mount LeConte and the AT)!
