Newfound Gap Road in Fall by John Northrup
Drive across the park on Newfound Gap Road, also known as U.S. Hwy.441. The road is 29 miles long and goes from Sugarlands in Tennessee to Oconaluftee in North Carolina. The road gains altitude toward the center when it crosses Newfound Gap. There is a wonderful overlook at the Gap which is also the state line between Tennessee and North Carolina.
From Tennessee toward Newfound Gap you will see Sugarlands Self-Guiding Nature Trail, The Chimneys Picnic Area, Chimney Tops Overlook, The Loop, Alum Cave Trail, Morton Overlook, Mt. Mingus, and then Newfound Gap with the Rockefeller Memorial the Appalachian Trail, and Clingmans Dome.
From North Carolina toward Newfound Gap you will see Mingus Mill, Smokemont Campground, Collins Creeek Picnic Area, and Webb Overlook.
