The loop road at Cades Cove is closed off from car traffic every Wednesday and Saturday until 10 a. to give bicyclists, walkers and joggers a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery while also sneaking in a little exercise to their vacation.
A springtime view of the John Oliver cabin in Cades Cove. The dogwood blossom and split rail fence lend a down home feeling to any visitor. Rocky, an old battle scared black bear is a veteran of the Cove and has been digitally inserted into the landscape.
