It took 49 minutes to go from the Cherokee side visitor center to Sugarland visitor center on the gatlinburg side. I let a single car pass on the way up, and a group of 3 on the way down. Never left my lane, and had no issues whatsoever until we made it to the bottom. Then my gps had me turn onto Little River Gorge Rd….. that is a road you DO NOT want to go down, lol. We had a mama bear and 2 cubs decide to slide down an embankment in front of us, and I barely got it stopped in the rain. Then it decided to route me down a side road that I had enough sense not to take. Then it was another 6 or 8 miles of some sure enough white knuckle driving. Finally made it to Honeysuckle Meadows where we’ll be for a few days.
