Foothills Parkway in Cosby, TN, extends Blue Ridge Parkway

Just off exit 443, off 1-40 in Tennessee, the Foothills Parkway connects to highway 321 in Cosby. This little stretch of road, just 6 miles, is a portion of the planned roadway that was to go all the way to Gatlinburg. Hopefully someday it will be extended, but right now Cosby has the best section of spectacular nature overlooks of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Mount Cammerer, named by Backpacker magazine the "best hike of the southeast". The hike is a 12 mile round trip hike from Cosby Campground, just a few miles down the road from Creekwalk Inn. We will fix you an early breakfast if you want to make the ascent to the firetower and pack you a lunch, too!
