Description

Beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains from this visitor center parking lot. There is a short path that leads to a taller, very-easy-to-access point with amazing views...

If you're looking to take a unique photo during what's called "The Blue Hour", wait until 30 minutes after sunset when you'll truly see why the Blue Ridge Mountain's were given their name.

On the Road: Right at the parking lot.
