For a gentle ride to the highest point of any chairlift in Gatlinburg, board the Ober Gatlinburg Scenic Chairlift. You’ll be more than 1,600 feet higher than any other lift can carry you! On your ascent, enjoy the longest chair lift ride of its kind anywhere in the country, at 3,019 feet long.
Originally built to take skiers to the top of Mt. Harrison, the lift now carries passengers enjoying the smooth ride to see the breathtaking views. The lift is open seven days a week in all seasons, weather permitting. From May to November, as you reach the summit, you might hear the lively sounds of bluegrass music from the band at the top of the lift!
