      Clingmans Dome is the highest point in the Smoky Mountains at 6,642 feet. You can drive all but the last 300 feet or so, and then you have to walk up a pretty steep paved road. Once you get to the top of the mountain there is a viewing platform you can walk up to get better

      views of the surrounding mountains.

      One of the nicest aspects about visiting Clingmans Dome is the weather. It was much cooler on top of the mountain than in town!

      The walk up the mountain side, and then the platform isn’t easy. There are benches along the side of the road for people to rest. I wouldn’t recommend anyone with ...


      • knee issues, bad arthritis, or serious health problems try the climb. If you are healthy enough to get to the top of the mountain the view from Clingmans Dome is spectacular!

        We did learn from reading a book about the Smoky Mountains that the view used to be even better. Visibility has been cut from 90% to 25% because of

        pollution and acid rain. So, even though we thought the views were great, others would be able to tell a difference. There are efforts underway to help with this problem.

        Be sure and visit Clingmans Dome on your next visit to the Smoky Mountains. After all, you can’t go to the Smokies and not visit the highest point!
