Fodor's Review

Access the picnic area via the western section of the beautiful Foothills Parkway. Foothills Parkway is lightly traveled, so there are usually few people here. A ½-mi hike takes you to the observation tower at Look Rock, which offers panoramic views into the Smokies. There are 51 picnic tables, restrooms with flush toilets, potable water, and a ranger station.
