The Road to Nowhere - Great Smoky Mountains National Park

A 6-mile scenic drive that was never completed, the “Road to Nowhere” provides a wealth of scenic mountain views, wildlife and hiking trails, including the 6-mile Noland Creek Trail. The Road to Nowhere ends at the mouth of a tunnel. Originally known as Lakeview Drive, the Road to Nowhere was planned in the early 1940s as a second entrance into Cades Cove from the North Carolina side. However, construction on the road was abandoned amid concerns about its high cost and environmental impact on the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
