Even if you’re not staying in one of our Pigeon Forge cabins this week, you can still experience some of the beautiful sights via two webcams that are operated by the National Park Service.
First check out the view from Purchase Knob, which is at the eastern end of the park and offers views to the northeast.
Also, take in the views from Look Rock, which is at the western end of the national park and offers great views of Mt. LeConte, Clingmans Dome and Cades Cove.
This time of year, you’ll see some great, clear views before the haze of summer sets in. Although overall, scenic views have degraded over the last 50 years thanks to man-made pollution. Since 1948, the average visibility in the southern Appalachians has decreased by 40 percent in winter and 80 percent in summer.
