Newfound Gap, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Sevier County, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, United States Newfound Gap is with its elevation of 5046 feet the lowest drivable gap through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Originally it was believed that Indian Gap, about 1.5 miles west of Newfound Gap, was the lowest pass through the Great Smoky Mountains. This was found invalid in 1872 when a Swiss geographer, Arnold Henry Guyot, measured many of the Smoky Mountain's elevations with a barometer and discovered that Newfound Gap actually was the lowest point.
