Starting at the Cooper Ski Resort and connecting to East Tennessee, Cooper Loop is a 2.3-mile long mountain road that loops halfway around Cooper Hill. The road travels through thick forest and ends at a breathtaking meadow as you cross over East Tennessee Creek and converge with East Tennessee Road. There is no camping along this road, but the road does travel past the Tennessee Pass Sleep Yurts, which can be rented through their website. This road also accesses the Tennessee Pass Cookhouse. The road is rough, rocky, and bouncy on the western half, with small rocks and abundant potholes. A stock-clearance SUV or pickup truck is highly recommended.
