Clingmans Dome is the highest point in Tennessee at 6,643 feet in elevation. It is a steep, but paved, half-mile walk to the top. There are many benches along the trail for the faint of heart or out-of-shape folks who need to rest. It is best to walk up on a clear day to see the distant mountains. Keep in mind that it is often 10 - 15 degrees cooler at the top than it is in Gatlinburg and other lower-elevation areas, so you might want to take along a jacket or sweater. The high temperature record here was hit in August 2007 at 72 degrees F! Don't go up on a bad air quality day, the ozone levels are often elevated on high pollution days.
