See Cades Cove in a different light on this easy 2-mile walk. Wear comfortable walking shoes, bring water and a flashlight.
One of the most relaxing things we have found to do is to walk the short loop in Cades Cove at night. The loop road is closed to vehicles at sunset and you can park near the entrance to the loop road. We will meet at the Orientation Shelter at the entrance to the Cades Cove Loop Road. Be sure to check the weather forecast because the Full Moon Walk will be cancelled if there is hazardous weather. A brilliant full moon will light up the night sky and let you see Cades Cove in a whole new light! This beautiful walk will take us through some of the Cove’s most scenic areas.
I took this walk with some friends last summer, and it was a memorable night.
Highly recommend this treat and let us all enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Smokies - Cades Cove in moonlight.......You can install Google Sky on your mobile and view the celestial objects, including stars and the various constellations,
Do not try the moonwalk as illustrated in the above video - only for professionals, please !!!!!
