Description

Cades Cove is a broad, verdant valley surrounded by mountains and is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smokies. It offers some of the best opportunities for wildlife viewing in the park. This short loop allows you to experience the rich history of the valley as you you'll pass through open fields, dense forest, and over creeks. This loop is a memorable trip you'll never forget, and you may want to come back every year. At the beginning of this trail is a campground that is open year round.

Flora & Fauna

The area is home to many diverse animal species, from turkeys and deer to bear and moose. You may even catch sight of a fox!
