Unless you are an avid hiker or Sevier resident, you won't see much of the fire's aftermath. If you take the Gatlinburg bypass and stop by the overlook, you will. The sign in the picture on this page doesn't exist anymore, nor do the trees in front of it. It's still a great view, perhaps even more so since you... More

There are several large scenic overlooks and you come out just a short distance from the intersection of the roads to Clingman's Dome and Cade's Cove. The park visitor's center is a must... More

We brought the dog to go see the views and take pics was super impressed . It's amazing how much if the land has bounced back from The fires .

Great view of Gatlinburg.... We stopped here on our way from our Pigeon Forge cabin to Sugarland's visitor center. I cannot imagine how much this view has changed since the fires.
