cades cove and roaring fork

just got back and did cades cove and roaring fork several times, saw several bears, even had one get up on the hood of our van but what im wondering is if there are any other auto trails around the area like these two?

The southern end of The Blue Ridge Parkway that starts in Cherokee up to Asheville is a gorgeous drive.

For mountain views, you can't beat Foothills Parkway. It's goes acroos the southwest side of the park. You can see the same views that are on the Look Rock web cam. You can get there by going west out of Townsend on 321. Foothills Parkway is on the left. You can take it over to Chilhowee Lake.

We loved the drive through Cataloochee for leaf and elk peaking last October. Sounds just like what you are looking for. The drive is one lane, beautiful views, along a stream on the way out if you go out the long way, ending back on 321. Be sure and stop by Sugarlands Visitor Center for maps and info for scenic drives while you are there.

Other than the Cataloochee drive mentioned, I'm pretty sure that Cades Cove and Roaring Fork are the only "loops" similar to what you are describing in the area.

The Cataloochee drive is a slow one due to the road conditions, more than anything else.

You might try Rich Mountain road out of Cades Cove. Its one-way out of the park. We had bear sightings twice there at the end of June.
