Breathtaking View at Clingmans Dome in Great Smoky Mountains


Clingmans Dome is truly breathtaking on a clear day, a must see for anyone who wants the most spectacular view of the Great Smoky Mountains. This is the highest point at 6,643 feet in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  It is also the highest point in Tennessee and the 3rd highest mountain east of the Mississippi.  Clingmans Dome has an observation tower that allows you 360 degree views of the Smokies and further.  To reach the observation tower it is a steep climb of a half-mile walk.  Clear day views can range close to 100 miles and with air quality most days range about a 20 mile view.  

Tips When Considering a Visit to Clingmans Dome
Temperatures can be cooler at the dome by 10-20 degrees than the surrounding lowlands, so be sure to dress appropriately even during the summer months. 
The tower is open year round, but the road leading to it is closed December 1 through March 31 and whenever weather conditions require.    
Pets and bicycles are not permitted on the paved trail to the observation deck or any other trails in the area. 
The trail is paved but is too steep to be wheelchair accessible.
These are just a  few of the things we thought you might find of interest.  Our guest quite often ask us what is the highest point in our immediate area to the Smokies and this is it.   If you have never been and the Great Smoky Mountains are a once in a lifetime trip then this is a must
