Cades Cove

Cades Cove is a remote area of Great Smoky Mountains National Park but is one of the most visited areas of the park. It consists of an 11-mile one-way road taking you through some of the most scenic places in America. In the Cove, you will discover majestic mountain vistas, waterfalls, hiking trails, an abundance of wildlife, many historic buildings, an old grist mill that is still in operation, beautiful wildflowers, and more.

Recreational activities include horseback riding, carriage rides, and hayrides. A campground is operational year 'round.

Traveling time from Townsend to Cades Cove is approximately 15 to 20 minutes. The Cove is open from sunrise to sunset, daily. Expect to spend from 2 to 4 hours in the Cove, depending on traffic and the sightseeing opportunities.

From the main Parkway in Townsend, follow the sign to the National Park. The road will end in a Wye. You will turn right to go to Cades Cove.
