Artist's Description

Newfound Gap Road is the portion of US 441 that runs through the Great Smoky Mountain NP. Going between Gatlinburg in Tennessee and Cherokee in NC. It is named for the gap going across the mountain that was found around the late 1800’s. Since it was new they called it New Gap, it had also been called Right Hand Gap….They are 2 tunnels and a 360 degree loop along the road. It mostly follows the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River on the Tn side. They are many pull offs with spectacular views. Hiking trails and fishing offer a more outdoor experience along the way. The Appalachian Trail cross it around Newfound Gap….This view here is just across the mountain from Newfound Gap. It is from the Ocanaluftee Valley Overlook…..They are also picnic areas on either side of the mountain, and historic building on the NC side. The reason you are not charged for visiting the Smokies is because of this road. It was a main road between Tennessee and North Carolina at one time. Part of acquiring the land for the park rested on there not being a charge to cross between the states.
