The drive along U.S. Route 321 from Pigeon Forge to Wears Valley is about 15 minutes long, and it takes us through some of the most beautiful scenery in the region. The 8-mile route takes us past towering mountains, lush forests, and sparkling streams.
We start the drive along U.S. Highway 321 turning onto Wears Valley Rd – about a block from the intersection with US-441 in Pigeon Forge. Driving generally west, we pass numerous small businesses and roadside attractions that dot every available nook and cranny in this area. Turning almost due south just before the city limits, we wind our way through the Smoky Mountains.
As we descend into the valley, the road straightens as it turns southwest once again to enter the community of Wears Valley, where we end the video turning onto the Foothills Parkway.
