Proposal Spots In The Smokies

Scenic Overlooks

Scenic overlooks are a great option for your Smoky Mountain proposal. These spots offer incredible mountain views for some truly unforgettable photos. Overlooks are especially easy when it comes to surprise proposals, as your photographer can arrive early, park and hike to the location to hide in plain sight until you pop the question.

Cades Cove

Cades Cove is an 11 mile scenic loop in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If you drive the loop, there are plenty of pull-offs that offer hikes, grassy fields and incredible wildflowers depending on the season. One hike that branches off of Cades Cove is Abrams Falls. This hike leads to a gorgeous waterfall that would make a beautiful background when you ask your loved one to marry you.
