We have been going to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge for many years and had never heard of this place. Someone told us about it and we decided to check it out. I honestly liked it better than the Cades Cove area. This is a great place to hike, ride through, picnic, enjoy the scenery etc. There is no charge to enter this area and it is definitely worth checking out. Loved it and made plans to go back. The only suggestion I have, wear Tennis shoes and enjoy.

Beautiful views. Lots of photo ops and several places to pull off and get a closer look. Be sure to bring your camera.

If you don't want to hike to see beautiful creeks and views then don't pass up the pull overs. You won't see the view or creek photo ops until you've passed it and most likely won't get a parking spot. We passed some I wanted to get out but couldn't turn around. The road is beautiful.

Great view from our car. Relaxing drive through nature. We saw 2 large black bears. They are beautiful. They walked around our car. Awesome experience. If you are unable to hike drive this road and you are going to love it’s view

Love to drive the loop, look for bears, stop and take pics of the cabins, water and soak in nature. There are hiking trails as well.
