Clingmans Dome is in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The peak is accessible after driving Clingmans Dome Road from Newfound Gap, and then walking a steep half-mile paved trail that leads to the 54-foot observation tower.
At 6,643 feet, Clingmans Dome is not only the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it is also the highest point in Tennessee, and the third highest mountain east of the Mississippi.
On a clear day, you can see up to 100 miles including seven states from the top of the tower. (Clockwise: Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.) Even on a cloudy, “smoky” day, the view is breathtaking.
Our view was…very very smoky 😉
