The morning after the 10th Anniversary Great Smoky Mountain Jeep Invasion Event, The Smoky Mountain Jeep Club will host a special ride called “JEEPS INVADE THE COVE”. The Cades Cove Loop Trail is the most popular scenic drive in all of the GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS, so you don’t want to miss it! We will meet at 11:00am on August 23rd at the Townsend Visitor’s Center at 7906 East Lamar Alexander Parkway, Townsend, TN 37882 and leave at Noon.
The scenic driving tour through the Cades Cove Loop takes approximately two to four hours depending on traffic. Because it’s a single-lane road, be prepared to stop frequently—the slow pace makes it easy to enjoy the amazing mountain landscapes, wildflower meadows, and diverse wildlife. Halfway through the Loop, you can make a stop at the Visitors Center where photo opportunities are ample and restrooms are available. The water-powered mill near the Visitor Center is a must-see, as well. There is no rush thru the loop and you can break away from the convoy at any time to stop
and picnic or check out the old cabins and churches.
