Cades Cove features an 11-mile, one-way loop road that circles the cove, offering motorists the opportunity to sightsee at a leisurely pace. While driving the loop road, please be courteous to other visitors and use pullouts when stopping to enjoy the scenery or view wildlife. This is one of the best areas to view wildlife in the Smokies. It is easy to see why it is so popular!

Clingman’s Dome

Clingmans Dome is Tennessee’s and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park's highest point, standing tall at 6,643 feet. Located along the state-line ridge, it is half in North Carolina and half in Tennessee. The peak is accessible after driving Clingmans Dome Road from Newfound Gap, and then walking up a steep half-mile trail. The paved trail leads to a 54-foot observation tower. Take in spectacular views of both Tennessee and North Carolina! Also, be sure to wave at the hikers who cross Clingmans Dome along their journey on the Appalachian Trail!
