Travel Timeouts: Gatlinburg Sky Lift

The Gatlinburg Sky Lift was built over half of a century ago, and it remains one of Gatlinburg’s most visited attractions. Mr. Rel Maples, who also owned and ran the Gatlinburg Inn, discovered the perfect plot of land, located behind his hotel. After much consideration, Mr. Maples chose famed chair lift expert Everett Kircher to help realize his dream, and soon the Gatlinburg Sky Lift opened to the public. The overlook at the end of the chair lift features an 1,800 ft overlook of the Smoky Mountains and surrounding area.
