John Oliver Cabin Access Professional Reviews and Guides

"Walk the edge of field and forest, drinking in views of Cades Cove and the mountains that rim it. Cross a few streams then come to the historic John Oliver Cabin, built in 1820. Absorb a way of life that went on for nearly 120 years before the Smoky Mountains National Park came to be.

Fall through spring are the best times to make this walk. In fall, the clear skies will allow for mountain and field panoramas. Also, you may spot deer then, too. Winter will offer solitude, and since it is a low-elevation hike, it will have better weather than the high country. In spring, the stream crossings may be a little high but shouldn’t pose a problem under normal conditions."
