Settlers first entered the Cove legally after an Indian treaty transferred the land to the State of Tennessee in 1819. Year after year they funneled through the gaps, urged on by the lure of a scenic and lush mountain valley. Most of the settlers traced their way down the migration route from Virginia into Eastern Tennessee (now more or less Interstate 81). Tuckaleechee (modern Townsend) was the last point of supply before the leap into Cades Cove. A few years later, pioneers moved directly over the mountains from North Carolina. They came equipped with personal belongings and the tools and skills of an Old
World culture, enriched with what they learned from the Indians. By 1850, Cades Cove supported 685 members of 137 households. Today, Cades Cove is one of the most popular locations in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This 11-mile loop follows the old wagon road trail and visitors can see deer, turkey and black bear, plus the historic settler’s homes, barns and churches, preserved as they were when Cades Cove become part of the Park.
Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail For an intimate experience of the Great Smoky Mountains’ lush mountain wilderness, don’t miss Roaring Fork Nature Trail! Along this five mile long narrow and winding road you’ll have the opportunity to discover some of nature’s secrets, and to learn the story of the people who once lived here. Rushing mountain streams, old-growth forest dominated by cove hardwoods and hemlocks, cascades, rapids and falls adorn the roadside, with many easily accessible hiking trails. Well preserved log cabins and other historic
buildings can be found, and at the end of Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail you will find Ely’s Mill, a family owned and operated grist mill built in 1925. To access Roaring Fork, follow the Parkway to Gatlinburg, traffic light #8. Follow the Historic Nature Trail Road to the Cherokee Orchard National Park entrance. Slightly beyond the Rainbow Falls trailhead is the one-way Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. Please note that buses, trailers, motor homes and bicycles are not permitted on the motor nature trail.

• BLACK BEAR • Perhaps the best known of our native species, the Black Bear is more vegetarian than carnivore. As a word of caution, do not attempt to approach bears. Enjoy them at a distance. While bears will normally f lee from humans, should they feel threatened or protective, they are capable of inflicting serious harm. With running speeds up to 30 mph, they can outrun the fastest human. • WHITE-TAILED DEER • When fleeing, this deer is easily identifiable by the flashing white tail underside. Active year-round, day and night, the deer population was nearly decimated by the early logging industry, but quickly rebounded after the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
• EUROPEAN WILD BOAR • With the exception of the bears, this is the largest wild animal in the area. These found their way into t he a rea in t he ea rly 1950 s. Wit h destructive habits (rooting up large areas in search of food or wallowing in small highcountry streams), they compete with native animals for sometimes scarce food. • RIVER OTTER • Hunted to near extinction for their pelts, River Otters were gone from the area by the 1920s. A successful reintroduction program, begun in the 1980s by the National Park Service, has seen a remarkable recovery in their numbers. They are now frequently found along Abrams Creek in Cades Cove.
