Highest Gatlinburg Elevation Peaks
1. Clingmans Dome (6,643 feet)
Clingmans Dome is not only the high point of the Great Smoky Mountains: It’s also the highest peak in Tennessee!
2. Mount Guyot (6,621 feet)
The second-highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains is basically the polar opposite of Clingmans Dome.
3. Mount LeConte (6,593 feet)
No fewer than five major hiking trails access the top of Mount LeConte via long day hikes: the Alum Cave Trail, Rainbow Falls Trail, Bullhead Trail, Trillium Gap Trail, and Boulevard Trail. This is one of the most challenging summits to reach!
4. Mount Buckley (6,580 feet)
It lies just a short distance west of Clingmans Dome en route to Silers Bald, and the AT passes right over the mostly forested summit.
5. Mount Love (6,420 feet)
Mount Love offers even fewer views than Mount Buckley given its heavy timber, but it’s also easily “bagged” from Clingmans Dome, lying just to the northeast along the Appalachian Trail.
