The Gatlinburg Bypass is a 4-mi roadway that connects Newfound Gap Road within the park a little north of Sugarlands Visitor Center and U.S. 441 just north of Gatlinburg going toward Pigeon Forge. It tracks around the side of Mt. Harrison. Take the Bypass to avoid the stop-and-go traffic of downtown Gatlinburg when leaving or entering the park. The second overlook when headed out of the park toward Pigeon Forge has the best views of Gatlinburg and Mt. LeConte beyond.
