FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This is a great car drive in the park. The top of the Gap can be 10 degrees cooler than below, so dress in layers and bring a jacket
  • From the parking area at Newfound Gap, you and the kids can straddle the state line and stand in North Carolina and Tennessee at the same time--and who doesn't want to do that?
  • Download a free podcast of the Newfound Gap Self-Guiding Auto Tour on the park's website(; go to Plan Your Visit/Things To Do/Auto Touring
