Clingmans Dome holds some high honors – it is the State of Tennessee’s high point, it is the highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains, and also, the highest point that thru-hikers have to ascend on the 2,174-mile Appalachian Trail. The peak falls within Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is the most accessible peak in the park. There is a road that takes you within 300 feet of the summit (Clingmans Dome Road) but it is only open during the summer and early fall. In the winter, your only option is hiking a 7.5-mile section of the Appalachian Trail that weaves from Newfound Gap to the summit of Clingmans Dome. If you make it to the summit, don’t miss the observations tower’s panoramic views to get the best perspectives in the Smokies.
