Gatlinburg SkyPark

765 Parkway, Gatlinburg, TN 37738 | (865) 436-4307 |



The Gatlinburg SkyPark has offered Gatlinburg’s best views and most memorable experiences since 1954 and is now even better with the spectacular new SkyBridge and expansive SkyDeck overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains.

The SkyLift itself is a landmark in Gatlinburg, sweeping guests right off the Parkway from the heart of town up five hundred vertical feet to the top of Crockett Mountain the most spectacular views you’ll find anywhere. Originally opened in 1954, today’s SkyLift is a smooth, comfortable ride on a three-seat chairlift carrying guests of all ages up and down the mountain.

At the top, you’ll discover the expansive SkyDeck with multiple seating areas inviting you to relax and take in the panoramic views over Gatlinburg and deep into Great Smoky Mountain National Park. While there, you can enjoy a beverage from the bar upstairs in the SkyCenter, or visit the snack bar or gift shop downstairs.

From the SkyDeck, your exploration continues as you quite literally cross the sky on the spectacular Gatlinburg SkyBridge – the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in North America. Stretching 680 continuous feet across a deep valley, the SkyBridge provides a sense of wonder and adventure easily attainable to everyone and even features glass panels to cross at its midpoint. A visit to the SkyBridge will be the one photo you’ll want to share with family and friends after your trip.

The experience and vistas of the Gatlinburg SkyPark are like nothing else in the region, and will stay with you long after your visit.
