Take the side-trip on Heintooga Ridge Spur Road to the must-see, Mile-High Overlook. The aptly-named perch at 5,280 feet of elevation bestows fabulous views of rolling hills against dramatic skies and the Great Smokey Mountains (including Mount LeConte and Clingmans Dome). Continuing on brings you to the Balsam Mountain Campground and Heintooga Overlook.
