    Cades Cove Loop Road

    Great Smoky Mountains National Park

    The Cades Cove Loop Road is only 10 miles, but its a trip that can easily take an entire day. From the Sugarlands Visitor Center in Gatlinbugh, the road rises, falls and curves alongside a river before reaching the Cove. The speed limit on the road is 10 or 15 miles per hour, and people obey it. Cars roll along slowly, taking in the beauty of the open meadows, looking for deer grazing in the pasture or alongside the road and the black bears that venture into the berry fields. There are several pullouts along the road where you'll find old houses, churches and even a graveyard of the settlers who once lived in the area.It is a fantastic side trip that could easily wind up being your entire time spent in the park.

    The area has a trolley system that runs through the towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. One of them go into the park to 2 destinations. It stops at the Sugarlands visitors center and Elkmont Campground.
