The Roaring Fork Overlook is a popular viewpoint in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee. It is located on the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, a scenic drive that winds through the forested hillsides and valleys of the park.

From the Roaring Fork Overlook, visitors can see panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, including the Roaring Fork stream that runs through the valley below. The overlook offers a great view of the forested landscape that makes up the park, as well as a glimpse into the area's history.

The Roaring Fork stream gets its name from the sound of the water as it rushes over the rocks in the stream bed. The stream is fed by rainwater and snowmelt from the surrounding mountains, and it provides a habitat for a variety of aquatic life, including several species of trout.

The Roaring Fork, Motor Nature Trail, is a popular destination for visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, offering stunning views of the area's natural beauty. The drive is top-rated in the fall when the changing leaves create a colourful display throughout the forest.
