Suggestions to consider when traveling into the Cherokee area during winter months:
- If you are arriving from the Knoxville area and plan to use US 441 through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, please confirm road closures by calling (865) 436-1200.
- If you are arriving via I-40 east or westbound, GPS will often route you through the town of Maggie Valley via US 19. Please be advised that this route has a significant increase in elevation that receives freezing precipitation when lower elevations are clear. It is advised that you travel via US 74 to the Great Smoky Mountain Expressway (US 441).
