Cades Cove

The 11 mile road which travels through Cades Cove offers great views and is a great way to spend a few hours. Keep in mind that although the Cades Cove road is only 11 miles long, it is a one-way loop which can take a few hours due to the number of visitors and congestion caused by wildlife. Traffic will slowdown (sometimes stop) at deer sightings, and completely stop  for black bear.
