We come through here at least once every time we visit the area. So far, two times this trip. Today, we came late afternoon instead of earlier in the day. We saw at least 20 white tail deer, 1 elk, 2 wild turkeys, what appeared to be a fox and about a dozen horses. We've been hoping to see a... More

Took a bike ride around the Cades cove loop. Wonderful trip. Would suggest it to anyone. So many more things you can see once you are out of the car. Not very strenuous of a ride until the very end. A few hills to climb but nothing bad. Take time to walk some of the trails you will enjoy.

Cades Cove is beautiful. When you 1st get to Cades Cove there is a welcome center that we did not go in. The views as you drive along are beautiful. As you drive along the trail which you can also bike to there is a lot of historic buildings and church. Most of the structures to do look the same... More

I know people want to drive slow to see the wonder of Cades Cove. I don't blame them. What I do blame is their lack of respect for other drivers by failing to pull over to let the traffic backed up behind them pass. I was at Cades Cove in the middle of winter -- February -- and I swear... More
