Veterans Overlook on Clinch Mountain

Veterans Overlook on Clinch Mountain. Not much is online about this gem of a view located in Grainger County, TN. This site pays honor to our veterans and has great views of Bean Station, Morristown, Cherokee Lake, Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forest.

Veterans Overlook (Clinch Mountain - Bean Station, TN) #VeteransOverlook

I’m starting a new series called Travel Thursday. I will talk about places and sites to go see and do. This weeks Travel Thursday is featuring Veterans Overlook. The Veterans Overlook, shown above is a Panoramic photo view.

Veterans Overlook on Clinch Mountain

You can find the Veterans Overlook on Clinch Mountain along 25-E. This highway mainly runs from around Morristown, TN to Corbin, KY. Located inside Grainger County, TN on top of Clinch Mountain. You can expect to see great views of Cherokee Lake, Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forest. I enjoy stopping at this site and looking at God’s beautiful creation.

There are no picnic tables, benches or restrooms at this site. The elevation is around 1,900.

Not only is the view great, you will see a nice display with the American Flag, Plaques, stone wall and more. Not to mention the Veterans Overlook is the most photographed view in Grainger County.

Bean Station Plaque

One of Tennessee’s earliest settlements. The valley you see was a warpath for the Cherokees, led Daniel Boone to Cumberland Gap and was traveled by Davy Crockett. Across Highway 11W to the right stood Bean Fort, built by William Bean. First permanent white settler in Tennessee. In front of the fort stood Bean Station Tavern, the largest tavern between Washington, DC and New Orleans. It housed President Polk, Johnson and Jackson. During the Civil War, the Battle of Bean Station was fought around the tavern.

This Flag flies to Honor our Grainger County Veterans!

Veterans Overlook Sign

God Bless all who have and all that will die for FREEDOM!
Veterans Overlook

Greater Love hath no man that this, that a man lay down his Life for a friend!

The No Greater Love comes from John 15:13.

The Monument

This monument is to honor all veterans past and future for service to the United States of America.

How to get there!

Instead of taking I-75, go North or South via US Highway 25-E instead! You will see signs for the overlook!
