Significance: The transportation system of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is representative of NPS park road design and landscape planning throughout the country. Much of the construction, including that of the Heintooga Round Bottom Road and Balsam Mountain Road, was undertaken by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s. Once established, this road system provided access to the first national park in the southern portion of the United States as well as links to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park.
