Hello all! I'm coming down to the Smokies this Monday, the 19th. My favorite place in the whole park has always been the Cades Cove loop.. so I was pleasantly surprised to find out there are two more roads that dissect off of the loop.. Rich Mountain and Parson's Branch(I can't believe I never saw signs for them). My question to anyone who might know is which one of these roads would be a nicer, prettier drive in Mid-March?
I realize that a lot of the trees and foliage will still be brown and not yet in blossom.. so despite this, which drive would you rather go on this time of year?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
