Can someone tell me if this road is paved going into North Carolina from Cades Cove?
No it is not paved. With all this rain they have had it gets rough.
Parsons Branch Road is definitely NOT paved and is pretty rough; it will take you a long time to drive it's entire distance, so unless you are specifically intersted in some place along the route, it's best avoided.
