Fodor's Review

Ranger-led Full Moon Hikes begin around sunset on some full-moon nights, usually on weekends, in summer and fall at the Cades Cove orientation shelter, and last about two hours. It's an easy hike into Cades Cove, and since cars are prohibited on the loop road after dark, you don't have to worry about traffic.
