We are planning another trip to Pigeon Forge in April and I have just read on here that Cades Cove will be closed for repaving. Also my second choice may also be closed (Roaring Fork). We totally loved Cades Cove last year and were looking forward to doing it again so now with it closed I need to replan. Any suggestions as to anything similiar (esp with the old buildings and such to go into) would be great. We will be going to Dollywood and possibly Wonderworks, but want something relaxing in the outdoors (and yes, free is always nice). Would also be interested in seeing waterfalls, we have a group of 6 and the youngest is a 7 year old so I don't want too far of a hike, but I think we could handle a moderate hike, we are all very active.
So, any ideas? Everything would be appreciated! Thanks.
