"watch for slippery boulders" Tennessee Off The Beaten Path Tip by Janyka

Tennessee Off The Beaten Path: 43 reviews and 41 photos

Cades Cove
You can see preserved historic settler homes, barns and churches in 11-mile loop, which follows the old wagon road trail.
I only drove to the beginning of the loop of Cades Cove. It was packed with tourist but I enjoyed the scenic drive along the river. In one place there were nice cascades and a parking place. I stopped there as most of the people if I knew what is going to happed I would drive away as fast as I could. One moment I read a warning board, that it is danger to swim there and no longer after I was hugging a large bolder to pull myself out of river J. I must say it was nice bath but probably I would enjoy it more without hiking boots and jacket.
