The highest drivable point in Tennessee is Clingmans Dome, which rises to an elevation of 6,643 feet. It is also the third highest point east of the Mississippi, best by two peaks in the North Carolina: Mt. Mitchell (6,684 feet) and Mt. Craig (6,647). As Nathan and Andre rush to their destination before the road closes for the winter season, they are challenged by cool and wet conditions.
If they make it to Clingmans Dome in time, they will be rewarded with breath-taking 360 degree views of the Smokies and far beyond. The pair have less than one day to reach the road that leads up to the Clingmans Dome Observation Tower, and they still have to walk up a steep paved trail to reach the observation tower on top of the mountain.
One of the best ways of experiencing America first hand is hitting the open road with the windows down and top off in a 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. The Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) team embarks upon an epic road trip by visiting the highest drivable roads of every state in the USA. Along the way Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme will visit locales less traveled and uniquely American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s favorite tourist destinations.
Spoiler alert: the Tennessee MMUSA belt buckle has already been found.
