Laurel Falls, The Sinks, The Y....

I was looking at a map of Little River Rd and see that there are like 7 stops along that road that look very interesting. Has anyone done this little road tour? If so, how long would we need to do this, all day, half a day? Could we do this and Cade's Cove on the same day?

Thanks in advance,

I would avoid swimming at "The Sinks." It is a crazy current and people get killed there every year it seems.

If you swim at the Sinks, stay far away from the waterfall area. Previous poster is correct, someone got killed there just last summer. There is a trail that many people take and then jump of the edge into a deep pool area. Parking gets filled up as some people stop just to watch others jumping off the ledge.

Make sure you stop at the visitors center to get the maps for the Park and Cades cove. Lots of good info and worth a couple of dollars so you know what you are looking at. The visitors center itself is very interesting.
