Visitors of all ability levels can enjoy a new paved trail to discover one of Cades Cove’s most popular homesites, the John Oliver Cabin. The half-mile John Olive Cabin Access trail is nearly eight feet wide to provide adequate space for wheelchairs and other mobility devices to pass one another. The Cades Cove area is also a great spot for wildlife viewing. Guests may see deer, turkey, bears and grassland birds while exploring the Cades Cove area.
