Clingmans Dome, Bryson City Reviews

  • Beware it is a long uphill walk. My kids and I actually hike often back home in PA so 6-7 miles is a walk in the park... this is under a mile, uphill and the air gets thin. Not what we are used to. But, getting to the top it was the most amazing view and worth all the effort. Do it if you are able! You will not be disappointed.

  • One of the highest point in the smokies located 6,643 feet. The most scenic picture of smokies can be captured from this point. One mile of walking on the paved mountain is the wonderful experience. Reaching the top on one stretch gave me a really wonderful experience. You can find bears even in this park of smokies but not so commonly found.

  • It is a challenge to get to the dome. It is up a fairly steep grade that is a half mile hike. The trail is blacktop the whole way to the dome. There are places to sit and rest along the way. The views are beautiful from the top of the dome. It was very foggy the day we were there but it was still beautiful. There is a small visitors center at the trailhead. The drive to Clingmans Done is awesome.

  • The view from the dome was nice. It was just so busy. Took a very long time to find a parking spot. The gift shop was nice and the staff there was nice too. You can buy water in there which I highly recommend if you forget to bring your own. The walk up the hill was slightly taxing and we took many pit stops. Was not prepared for that. Be warned and prepared for that steep incline uphill to the dome.

  • My suggestion is to get there early...the parking lot fills up fast. We got there a little after 10 and by the time we left around noon...people were having to park all along the road. The walk up to the dome was steep but the view from the top was spectacular. We took the Appalachian Trail back to the parking was an easy trail, and the weather was perfect. It was breathtakingly beautiful. A must do while you are in The Smoky Mountains!
