Clingman’s Dome is the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, as well as the highest point in Tennessee. It is located on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina and is reached by a steep, half-mile hike from a parking lot on Clingmans Dome Road. The summit of the mountain is an observation tower that offers 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. On a clear day, visitors can see up to 100 miles away. The tower is open year-round, weather permitting.
Clingman’s Dome is named after Thomas Clingman, a 19th-century politician and geologist who surveyed the area. The mountain is home to a variety of plant and animal life, including spruce-fir forests, wildflowers, and the endangered Southern Appalachian spruce-fir moss spider.
Clingman’s Dome is one of the most popular destinations in the park, and it is especially crowded during the peak leaf-watching season in the fall. During this time, the park service provides a shuttle service from the parking lot to the trailhead to reduce congestion.
