We highly recommend taking the trolley to Dollywood! Instead of spending $12 on parking at the theme park ($18 for oversized vehicles), you can leave your car at Patriot Park for free and take the trolley for just a $1 round trip. Trolleys arrive every 15 minutes and start running 30 minutes before Dollywood opens and continue until everyone has been returned to the trolley station in the evening. The trolley will drop you off right at Dollywood’s main gate. For more budget friendly advice, check out these 15 Dollywood Tips and Tricks for Saving Money at the Amusement Park.
Dolly’s Splash Country
Just like at Dollywood, parking at Dolly’s Splash Country is also $12 per day, so taking the trolley to the water park is a no-brainer. Trolleys leave Patriot Park for Splash Country every 20 minutes. Riders will be dropped off at the front entrance to the water park.

Wears Valley is one of the most scenic areas in the Smokies and is well worth a visit. As you can see on our Pigeon Forge trolley map, The Wears Valley trolley route begins at Patriot Park and travels through the Belz Mall area to Traffic Light #2 on the Parkway. Then, the trolley makes its way to Community Center Drive, Sand Pike Blvd., and Wears Valley Road to stop by area campgrounds and local businesses. The trolley continues west to the edge of Pigeon Forge before heading back to Patriot Park along the same route. Wears Valley trolleys arrive every 40 minutes.
The best part about the Pigeon Forge trolleys are how cheap they are! All of the routes are only $.50 per ride, with the exception of the Gatlinburg Welcome Center trolley, which is $.75 per ride. Children age 3 and under ride for free. If you’re going to be making heavy use of the trolley system, consider getting an All Day Pass wristband for $2.50 at the Fun Time Trolley Office. You can hop on the trolley at Patriot Park or at any of the trolley shelters or trolley bear signs located throughout the area.
