Cataloochee Valley Tour

Cataloochee Valley Tour

Turn out of the driveway left onto Highway 209. Go 5.2 miles to Fergusonís Store and make a left turn and continue on Highway 209 approximately 8 miles, merge right onto I-40 West, continue 4 miles to Maggie Valley Exit 20, 276 South. Continue on 276 South for approximately .03 miles to Cove Creek Road on your right. Turn on Cove Creek Road and keep riding until you come to the entrance of Cataloochee Valley. The first 1.5 miles of Cove Creek Road are paved; the next 6 miles are hard packed dirt. (Not recommended for motorcycles after heavy rains). After this drive, you will see a wide, paved road, dead-ending to the right, but offering access to the left. Take the left turn for a beautiful scenic drive displaying homesteads, a school, church, and barn, and where you can view the elk, deer and an occasional bear. There are lots of hiking trails and waterfalls (must hike to see them). Take a picnic and relax. To come back, simply reverse your route to Bear Creek Cabins.
