Directions from Exit 407

From Exit 407 off I-40, take Hwy. 66 southbound. Continue on Hwy 66 for about 6 miles to the first major intersection (Hwy 66 and 411) in Sevierville. Hwy 66 becomes US 441 South (known by locals as the Parkway). Continue straight ahead on US 441/the Parkway. The Parkway will take you through Sevierville and into Pigeon Forge. 

You know you’re in Pigeon Forge when you start seeing numbered traffic lights. All through Pigeon Forge, the lights are numbered from #1 to #10. 

If you want to go into Gatlinburg and/or the Great Smoky Mountain Parkway, keep going and watch for a large sign that says "leaving Pigeon Forge." Continue on the Parkway for the next 5 miles to Gatlinburg (this section of road is known as “the Spur.”). Once in Gatlinburg, you’ll arrive at traffic light #3 at the intersection of  Hwy 321/East Parkway.
