Gatlinburg SkyLift

The Best Seat In Gatlinburg

The Gatlinburg SkyLift is a landmark on the Parkway, sweeping guests from the heart of town up five hundred vertical feet to the top of Crockett Mountain the absolutely best views in Gatlinburg.

At the top, you'll find the expansive new SkyDeck to take in sweeping vistas you won't find anywhere else, looking out over Gatlinburg and out across the highest peaks of Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  After exploring the SkyDeck and spectacular new SkyBridge, you'll ride the lift back down the mountain, enjoying ever-changing views throughout the journey.

Originally opened in 1954, the Gatlinburg SkyLift and a must-do experience for thousands of visitors each year, many of whom make a SkyLift ride an annual event. Today's SkyLift is a smooth, comfortable, three-seat chairlift built in 2017. 

The ticket window closes at 9pm, the last chair up the mountain is at 9:30pm, and the mountain closes at 10pm.
