    TN, not NC. It's a seasonal road and one way inside the park boundary. You must run South to North across the mountain, and I think it is one way on Cades Cove also.

    A link to the county dot maps here.

    A little something from the park service here. Download the trip planner to get a map.

    The state and the park service call it Rich Mountain road across the mountain.

    Yes, indeed this is good info! I looked at a map and it's one way down the mountain, and Cades Cove Rd in 1 way also making our trip a bit redundant but we'll give it a shot... thanks for that info!

    Our planned trip with stops and side trips is basically the following:
