- Brief Directions: Newfound Gap (el. 5048 ft./1539 m.) is a mountain pass located near the center of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park of the southern Appalachian Mountains in the United States of America. Situated along the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, the state line crosses the gap, as does U.S. Highway 441 (also known as Newfound Gap Road), on its way over the mountains between Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Cherokee, North Carolina. The Appalachian Trail also traverses the gap, as do a small number of other hiking trails. (per wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newfound_Gap

- Description: My family and I were sight seeing one after noon to Newfound Gap, when you arrive on top your standing on the TN. NC. border. Its a spectacular view however this day there was a snow storm coming in and the wind was blowing. I caught this hiker going back down after he had made it to the top.
