Cades Cove Loop Road opened later than usual Wednesday morning after a nearby rockslide.
According to Great Smoky Mountain National Park officials, a rockslide on Laurel Creek Road caused them to delay opening Cades Cove Loop Road. Laurel Creek Road to Cades Cove was also closed due to a rockslide.
The roads reopened around 10 a.m. after the rockslide was cleared.
Cades Cove is one of the most popular destinations in the Great Smoky Mountains. It's a valley surrounded by mountains and is considered one of the best places to spot wildlife in the area.
