I have a good way to come in to Pigeon Forge you will miss alot of the traffic. When you come in to Seirville and go accross the bridge. Turn left at the interection, go about 1 to 2 miles. Turn right on to Middle Creek Road. The dairy queen is on the right, follow the road and you will come out at the old mill. You can save yoursefl a lot of time, due to the heavy traffic. This is the back way to dollywood.
