We will be driving from Knoxville (actually Nebraska) on July 30. Will the main road from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg be a nightmare? We won't arrive until probably 3 or 4 p.m. Is it better to drop down into Townsend and come up that way? We'll need to pick up keys to our cabin at Cabin Fever Vacations which I understand is around stoplight #3. (2519 Sand Pike Blvd.)
Any tips or help is much appreciated!
