  • This is the most visited National Park in the US. I like the drive and scenery better than the Blue Ridge Parkway. The park is a relatively easy drive for what this is. Hills and winds but nothing to get worked up about. Plenty of overlooks and summit type areas. Good time to be here is in fall as leaves change colors or when icicles are formed. Good place to get away from it all. Beautiful.
  • We were driving through and it was very pretty. There are lots of overlooks and just a nice drive. It is a curvy road so be careful. Also when at some of the overlooks be aware that you might see a bear or bears. These are wild animals. Don't go up to them. Otherwise have fun and make some memories with loved ones.
