Gatlinburg, TN (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Looking to see panoramic views of the scenic Smoky Mountains? Standing at 6,643 feet above sea level, Clingmans Dome is the highest point in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As one of the most popular places to visit, Stony Brook Cabins & Chalets encourages travelers to keep three things in mind before heading out for a day at Clingmans Dome.
“Families who stay in our Gatlinburg cabins or chalets will be only minutes from the national park,” said a spokesperson for Stony Brook Cabins & Chalets. “We encourage travelers to make the stop at one of the national park visitor centers to learn more about the sights that can be seen from the Clingmans Dome overlook.”
Stony Brook Cabins & Chalets also reminds families to prepare for cooler weather before making the trip to the observation site. Clingmans Dome will always be colder than the lower elevations, like Gatlinburg, so Stony Brook Cabins & Chalets recommends traveling with a light jacket, sweatshirt or scarf.
Making the drive into the Smoky Mountains is simple, but visitors should also know that there is a short, half mile walk from the parking area to the Clingmans Dome observation tower. The trail to the summit is paved, but steep, so it is helpful to wear comfortable shoes. The hike gains 330 feet in elevation and takes most visitors only 30 minutes to complete.
