With soaring cliffs and majestic <a href="http://mtcloud.com/onlinepics/bridge.jpg">arches</a> , McCloud Mountain is an awe-inspiring place to visit. It may be one of the South’s best-kept secret. <a href="http://mtcloud.com/onlinepics/bridge.jpg">arches</a> * 1300 acres * elevation of 2700 feet * atop the Cumberland Mountains * To the northeast of La Follette, TN * Views of the Great Smoky Mountains * Views of Powell Valley * Views of Clinch & House Mountains * 25 minute drive from Norris Lake Over fifty years ago, Jim McCloud purchased the tract of land that is now occupied by McCloud Mountain Resort. He began sightseeing tours of the mountain's many natural wonders and magnificent views. His dream of one day sharing the property has become the reality of Real Estate Developers Paul & Madeline Fields with the opening of a mountain top lodge, property sales, and what is easily one of the most unique restaurants that you will find anywhere.

GPS Input- Because of our rural location, GPS units & mapping programs are not always reliable. We suggest inputting the longitude & latitude coordinates of our ENTRANCE GATE. Different GPS systems use different formats, so here are a couple of standard formats. GPS #1: 36 26' 6.70"N 84 4' 43.30"W GPS #2: 36.4352 -84.0787. The following is a suggested address which can be used in Mapquest, and on several GPS models: 114 Duff Rd, Duff TN 37729. On most systems, this will put you at our gates (at the bottom entrance to the mountain). Some GPS units will accept the Restaurant's actual address which is 1220 McClouds Trail, Duff, TN 37729.
