For persons who are concerned, as we are, about reducing their environmental footprint, cycling Cades Cove is one of the greenest ways to minimize your environment impact on the Cove and its wildlife.
Cades Cove Loop Road is normally closed to motor vehicle traffic starting the second week in May on Wednesday and Saturday mornings 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m., allowing bicyclists and pedestrians the ability to enjoy a pleasurable car-free cruise through the Cove while enjoying the serenity of the mountain air and abundant wildlife. This closure continues through the Wednesday before the last Saturday in September.
We strongly recommend that safety gear, including helmet, closed-toed shoes, and high visibility clothing, be worn by all bicyclists.
