Newfound Gap Road near Chimney Tops Area

As you are driving up toward Newfound Gap (on the Tennessee side), there is a picnic area off to the side called Chimneys.  A couple of miles north of the picnic area on Newfound Gap Road is the trailhead for Chimney Tops (the trailhead is not in the picnic area).  Parking is available.

After going 0.9 miles in, Chimney Tops Trail meets Road Prong Trail.  The trail continues to the right.  It then climbs 1.1 miles to Chimney Tops.  Chimney Tops Trail is a total of 2 miles long and provides a fantastic view at the top.

Road Prong Trail

At the parking lot, follow Chimney Tops Trail 0.9 miles in.  It is here where Road Prong Trail can be accessed.  After this, Road Prong Trail goes 2.4 miles to the Appalachian Trail. At this point, you are only 1.7 miles away from the actual Newfound Gap parking area by taking the Appalachian Trail (to the left).
