Ascend the tallest towers, sail along ziplines or plunge off a drop tower! There are so many ways to get airborne in Gatlinburg. Whether heights thrill you or make your knees quake, you’ll find the perfect high-flying adventure here, like these.
Look down through the glass floor of the longest pedestrian cable bridge in North America–if you dare! The SkyBridge crosses a mountain valley to give you views from 500 feet above Gatlinburg.
Ride the glass elevator 400 feet to the top of this iconic observation tower for a panoramic view of the mountains around you and the city below you.
Climb Anavista Tower for 360-degree views. Stroll the Treetop Skywalk, 60 feet in the air. Try the open-air Chondola chairlift. Go ziplining side by side with family and friends.
If you prefer conquering heights with your feet solidly on the ground, hike up Mt. Leconte. At 6,593 feet, it’s the national park’s third highest peak. The hike is strenuous, so start early in the day.
Clingmans Dome is the highest point in the national park and third highest mountain east of the Mississippi. Climb the tower for views reaching 20 miles, even up to 100 miles in the clearest weather!
Get your adrenaline pumping! Fly through treetops, with amazing views and breathtaking speed. Check out CLIMB Works, Smoky Mountain Ziplines and many more.
Climb three stories off the ground and navigate rickety bridges, tightropes, and dozens more obstacles. You don’t have to be an expert climber! Newbies are welcome here.
Enjoy the gentle ride up Mt. Harrison in an enclosed tram car suspended on cables. This is the antidote after drop towers and ziplines!
