Cades Cove is a big tourist and local draw of cars driving a loop of 11 miles (plus two gravel roads that cut through the middle of the loop). Starting in May, Cades Cove is open to cyclist of all ages and abilities from early morning to 10 am on Wednesdays and Saturdays. On the loop trail (paved) are park rangers on bikes to give you information
Great ride, especially the "full moon" ride when the park is open for bikes only during a full moon. Take your light, the main road is asphalt, but you can go off onto dirt/rock trails and roads.
