Emerts Cove Bridge is one of only two covered bridges near the Smoky Mountains in Sevier County (the other being Harrisburg Bridge off Rt. 339). Emerts Cove bridge is just north of Rt 321, just off Rt. 416 north of Pittman Center. The simplist way to see it is to follow the road directly across from the Greenbrier entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The bridge spans the Little Pigeon River, just a mile or so out of the Park.
The last time we visited this bridge was back in September, when it was warm and very green. On the day pictured above and below it was too cold to linger for long and enjoy the peaceful setting. But I did like the big wreathe that someone thoughtfully added to the bridge for winter!
