    Saw a black bear and 2 turkeys! I loved the scenery. It was congested in spots because of the onlookers for the bear. If you bring your dog (we did) you can pull over and let them out on leash.

    The scenery is beautiful. We saw many deer and turkey. We stopped and hiked some of the trails. So glad we did since you cannot see everything by simply driving through. Hope to bring our family back!

    Beautiful scenery, and the path itself is moderate in difficulty. They close the path from motorists on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7am-11am, so only cyclists & walkers can pass through. It's great!

    Get the app 'Cades Cove Driving Tour'. It guides you through the trail and gives you a history lesson on all of the sites. Since there is no service, the app does not require 3G connection or wifi.

    Get here early on Saturday and you can bike around the 11 mile loop before they let cars in. Do not bike the loops after it's opened to cars. Out-of-towners are rude and it's dangerous.

    Come for the wild black bears, white tail deer, and elk. Stay for the beautiful Smoky Mountain views.

    Protected from the rest of the world , the folks in Cades cove were still using old methods of living well after most of the country had moved on.

    Go early. Sunrise. It takes about an hour to drive from gatlinburg, unless you are Mario andretti. Fishintje abrams creek is worthwhile. Go with a buddy. The limestone upstream create very slippery wa

    Scenic and beautiful, but not a sign of any wildlife here. No bears, deer, or birds in sight. Maybe they were hiding? The loop drive is nice, but only one lane, so it can drag esp.if cars are slow.

    Park rangers are fine, mind your manners and be respectful of where you are. This place is absolutely beautiful.

    Amazing place. The wildlife is beautiful. The cabins and churches that still stand are humbling.

    Worth the drive, however, it can get slow at times, and there is no way to turn around midway.

    go early in the morning, so you don't get caught in traffic.

    Plan for traffic. It's only an 11 mile loop. But if there's a lot of people visiting, it can take a couple hours to complete the loop.

    Only come here to look at scenery; I saw just a deer. Once you enter, you cannot turn back, and getting stuck behind a slow poke is common.
