We spent a few days at the park hiking and exploring. The park is free and the visitor centers are well-staffed and spacious. We found the trails to be well-marked and well-maintained.

We Drove through the park on the way to Cades Cove, the heavy rains the day before provided excellent river sounds the whole trip with ample pull-offs so you can stop and view the water and snap a picture or two.

Don’t miss this opportunity to revel in the glory of the Smokies. The traffic can be troublesome, patience and courtesy are key to enjoying the ride.
