Area bikers know this as one of their favorite rides. A loooong straight stretch, corn afar on both sides of road. Special old farmplace up ahead. I take a right just past the corn across the Little River just before Townsend TN on the way to Cades Cove today. This is my normal route to the mountains if going to the Cove, Elkmont, or Treemont. I only go an alternate route to take the road to Clingman's Dome, via Gatlinburg bypass.
