Located in Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP), this iconic spot draws visitors from all over to experience its breathtaking 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains
At an elevation of 6,643 feet, you’ll be able to see some of the most stunning views in the National Park. On a clear day, you can even see into North Carolina and Georgia as well!
It was named after Thomas Lanier Clingman, a Confederate brigadier general and U.S. Congressman from North Carolina.
Clingman was an advocate for the creation of the National Park Service and played a role in its establishment.
It’s a 1.3-mile out-and-back trail which is a moderately difficult trail because of the steep incline that would take approximately 40 minutes to finish.
The drive is about 7 miles long and takes you through a beautiful forest and past several scenic vistas.
The road is open from April to November (weather permitting), so be sure to check the dates and weather conditions before you visit.
