The Ultimate Smoky Mountain Experience. Located at the top of the SkyLift, the Gatlinburg SkyBridge is 680 feet long AND the longest pedestrian cable bridge in North America!

You can find other bridges and spans, but there’s only one Gatlinburg SkyBridge and it will be the one photo you’ll want to share with family and friends after your trip.

You can also hike on the new SkyTrail, relax on our expansive SkyDeck while taking in the highest peaks in the Smoky Mountains, or grab some food and refreshments in the SkyCenter’s two-story building.

Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail: Scenic Drive & A Waterfall Wonderland

Its name derived from a “roaring” mountain stream, the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail twists and turns for six miles, forming a one-way looping scenic drive through the Great Smoky Mountains. The narrow roadway only allows cars—trucks, trailers. Unfortunately, RVs cannot fit on this road. Drive along the road and immerse yourself in the mossy green rocks and boulders as you gaze at the water rushing through the mountains.

The drive on the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail begins at the Noah “Bud” Ogle farmstead, where you can take a walking tour of the historic buildings and pick up a tour map of the roadway sights. Also, the trailhead for Rainbow Falls can be found just beyond the farmstead, a moderate 3-mile hike to a stunning 80-foot waterfall that will reward you with its radiance and beauty.
