Written DirectionsYou'll find this route in the western part of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. To get to Cades Cove Road, you'll need to start in the main entrance to the park which is near Gatlinburg Tennessee on US 441. Head into the park on US 441 and after only a mile or two, look for the signs for Cades Cove. Just follow the signs from there on out and get ready for Cades Cove Loop which is an 11 mile one way loop that takes a few hours to get through on account of the traffic density.
SceneryThis is one of the most beautiful rides I know of. It's 27 miles in and 27 out. This ride follows a river and has scenery that will take your breath away. Update provided by Miller5573 on 5/30/12: ""
Drive EnjoymentThis two-lane road is nothing but mountains and river. Cades Cove is in a National park so the road is very well maintained. It basically follows the contour of the river so it's exciting as it twists and turns. There are rock overhangs and a couple of small bridges. However, take is at a reasonable pace so you wont miss the natural beauty.
Note: Please keep the speed to something reasonable. Running 110 in a 45 gives us all a bad name and spoils the fun for everybody.
