  • Visiting Look Rock

    After hiking, I drove north on US-321 and turned east onto the Foothills Parkway. It’s an 11-mile drive up and along the ridge line to Look Rock, an elevated platform from which to observe the Smoky Mountains. This was my second visit at this location, and, despite being mostly overcast, it’s always nice to have a look from above the clouds. You can visit my gallery to see more…


  • Structure at Sea

  • Look Rock Tower Trail

    Look Rock Tower Trail

    Just across the street from the parking lot at Look Rock is the Look Rock Tower Trail. It’s a short 1/2 mile hike along a paved trail through the forest, though the grade is steep. At the end, you’ll encounter a very tall concrete structure…

    On top, the observation area provides visitors with a 360-degree panoramic view, including the Smoky Mountains to the east and the Cumberland Plateau to the west. The spiral staircase is locked and off limits, with equipment for monitoring air quality and communications.

    Though both the elevation and proximity to taller mountains are less than that of Clingmans Dome, the views are really wonderful and the area is much more peaceful…in fact, the only other people I saw were a couple leaving as I arrived.

    Fine prints are available in my gallery at Pixels and would make an excellent accent piece for an empty wall – at home or in the office!


  • Look Rock

    Look Rock

    Located along the old section of the Foothills Parkway, near Townsend, Tennessee, approximately 11 miles from US-321, visitors can enjoy expansive views of the Smoky Mountains from both Look Rock, as well as Look Rock Tower.

    While there are several spots along this route to park and appreciate the scenery, Look Rock is the only area with a designated observation platform. There are no restrooms or gift shop, but the view is great!

    If interested in a print for your home, you can visit my gallery to review a variety of options available to meet your wishes. Thanks for visiting!


    Crossing the Foothills Parkway into the forest, visitors can hike to the Look Rock observation tower along the Look Rock Tower Trail


  • Clingmans Dome

    Located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee, Clingmans Dome is a popular tourist destination. So much so, that on any given good-weather day, visitors may observe vehicles with license plates from 25 or more states.

    From the parking area, it’s a short 1/2 mile hike along a paved trail, though the grade is quite steep. As such, there are several benches along the way on which to rest. There’s also a gift shop & restrooms.

    Standing 6,643-feet tall, Clingmans Dome is both the tallest mountain in the park and in the state of Tennessee. It’s also the highest point along the 2,192-mile Appalachian Trail, and the third tallest mountain (after Mount Mitchell and Mount Craig) east of the Mississippi River. Lastly, it’s the 17th tallest mountain in the United States of America.

    If you’d be interested in a fine print, you can see more in my gallery.
