Area Info : Gatlinburg, TN : Play : Attractions : Gatlinburg Sky Lift Park

Part of what makes Gatlinburg such a popular city to visit is the many ways people can view the mountains and surrounding scenery. As such, there's no better way to see everything than from up high. For the best views, make sure to earmark some time to visit the Gatlinburg Sky Lift Park and see things from a new perspective.

About Gatlinburg Sky Lift

The sky lift in Gatlinburg has been operating since 1954. Since then, it has grown in popularity and what it has to offer over the decades. In 2019, the SkyBridge was opened to worldwide attention.

This attraction was started thanks to local innkeeper Rel Maples wanting one for his property. From that point on, the chairlift expanded to become one of Gatlinburg's sightseeing hallmarks and continues to be one of the most popular Gatlinburg attractions in the area.

Planning Out Your Visit

There's a lot to do and enjoy when you visit Gatlinburg Sky Lift Park. Each part of the park offers something different to enhance your sightseeing experience. The options to consider are as follows:

Gatlinburg Sky Lift

The sky lift is the first option and one that can't be ignored. Enjoy going from the heart of town straight up five hundred feet to enjoy the best views in Gatlinburg bar none.


This is the longest suspension bridge in the country and reaches 150 feet at its midpoint. You'll cross a deep valley by walking across 680 feet of incredible scenery. Equally breathtaking and attainable, this is one sight you don't want to miss.


Enjoy a large viewing deck, outdoor seating, a tiered waterfall, fire pit, and more as you enjoy your time at the top of Crockett Mountain.


Here is where the food is. When not enjoying the gorgeous views, you'll have access to foods like pizza, salads, wraps, and ice cream. Head to the second floor, and you'll find a large seating area plus a bar for even more fun day or night.


This is a walkway that connects the ends of the SkyBridge, so visitors can enjoy a walk in the mountains that's manageable for adults, kids, and even pets.
