We always stop at the gap on our way to North Carolina. I have pictures of when my parents used to take me to the gap when I was a small child. Always a wonderful view and reminds me of some great memories

Another stunning view offered by the Smoky Mountains! We usually wind our way home through the Mtns so that we can enjoy all the amazing views.

On the Appalachian Trial, we hiked the moderate-strenuous 7+ mile round trip to the Jumpoff, then continued toward Charlie's Bunion. The Jumpoff is fabulous and, along the train, there are views that are simply magnificent. Enjoy!

It was a shorter drive than we were expecting from Gatlinburg. Beautiful drive and amazing views once we got there!

Actually missed the turn going to Cade's Cove and wound up at New Found Gap, there was some snow on the ground and it made for amazing pictures.

If you visit the Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge area, Newfound Gap is an awesome place for views. Plenty of hiking and wildlife.

As long as the park is open then you can drive up to Newfound Gap. Theres a TN/NC side marker for pictures. There's also restrooms.

About 45 minutes. It really depends on the traffic and how many times you stop along the way to take in the views of the mountains.
