Clingmans Dome

Clingmans Dome is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 6,643ft (2.025m) above the sea level, located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, in the southeastern United States.

Clingmans Dome, also known as Clingman's Dome, is the highest point in the park and in Tennessee. The road to the summit is called Clingmans Dome Road. There are many pullouts along the road which provide beautiful views of the mountains. A large parking area at the end of the road provides plenty of parking for visitors. The road to the pass is asphalted. It’s a seven mile scenic drive from U.S. Highway 441, in Newfound Gap. On the summit there’s a 45-foot (14 m) concrete observation tower, built in 1959. The road is open annually from April 1 through November 30.
