The Gatlinburg SkyLift Park loves adding new experiences for visitors to enjoy, and this fall the attraction is welcoming a brand new addition: the Gatlinburg SkyTrail. This scenic walkway will give everyone more opportunities to take in the breathtaking views of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains and opens Oct. 10!
The Gatlinburg SkyTrail provides a unique Smoky Mountain experience! The SkyTrail is a scenic walkway connecting both sides of the Gatlinburg SkyBridge as it follows the slope of Crockett Mountain. It will be located behind the SkyBridge! From the SkyTrail, visitors will be able to take in the length and height of the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America, as well as stunning views of the Smokies! The east side of the trail is a wooden boardwalk, and the west side is a paved pathway. The SkyTrail will be accessible to everyone, and both kids and adults will love it! It’s even dog friendly!
The Gatlinburg SkyTrail is just one of the many updates the Gatlinburg SkyLift Park has received in the past few years! On Aug. 19, the Gatlinburg SkyBridge got 3 new glass panels, for a total of 6 glass panels at the bridge’s midpoint. The attraction plans to add even more new experiences for guests in the future! Take a look at what you can already enjoy at the SkyLift Park:
After you take the Gatlinburg SkyLift to the top of Crockett Mountain, you’ll hop off onto the SkyDeck. This spot features a viewing deck, outdoor seating areas and the SkyCenter. The SkyCenter has a gift shop on the first floor, plus a snack bar with pizza, salads, ice cream treats and more! On the second floor, you’ll find a large seating area and a bar that offers gorgeous views of the city and the mountains. You can sit inside or on the front deck overlooking Gatlinburg.
