We visited Cades Cove (http://www.nps.gov/grsm/planyourvisit/cadescove.htm) for a nice afternoon of cycling. It is a 11 mile loop, somewhat up and down… we were just happy not to be in the car for it.
Nice weather, wind in your face…. And just a bit of sweat. Nice
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.
