A short walking trail in the Cades Cove area of Smoky Mountain National Park. This short trail leads from the Cades Cove loop to an old homestead in the woods.
The trail was very easy, may be off road stroller friendly as well. Saw deer about 100 yards from us, if not closer. Great place for children to explore and plenty of running around space for little ones and great to relax and have a picnic.
The trail starts from a very scenic spot on the Cades Cove Loop Road. It is a short hike to see the old Appalachian homestead. This is a good place to explore and take in the beautiful valley scenery...and it will likely not be as crowded as the visitor center area just up the road. You can also take the mile-long Wet Bottom Trail to connect to the popular Abrams Falls Trail.
Really enjoyed the walk. We talked to some people who had seen a bear around the barn.
Beautiful, a lot of deer feeding and playing.
Saw lots of deer in early spring.
Quick, easy walk to a cool little cabin.
A beautiful short little walking trail with an interesting old log house and barn to visit along the way. Great for kids.
