Cades Cove Scenic Loop Road
The loop is closed to automobile traffic on Wednesdays from May through September each year, allowing visitors to bike, walk, hike and enjoy the landscape in peace and leisure.
The cozy loop road is surrounded by the magnanimous Smoky Mountains, home to deer, fox, eagles, bear, and numerous historic buildings – the homes, churches, and workplaces of Cades Cove residents during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The full Cades Cove loop is 11 miles, which is mostly flat with gentle rolling hills. It also has two, different turn-off points, if you prefer a shorter ride. Stroll or stride as you wish–enjoy at your pace. Rental bikes and hiking are also available, with access to several trailheads via the loop.
