Live on the ‘WildSide’ at This Pigeon Forge Adventure Park Coming Soon

The Smokies are a spectacular place to take a walk on the wild side! Hundreds of area hiking trails serve up adventurous experiences full of special sights you don’t want to miss. But, have you ever off-roaded on the wild side of the Smokies? A new attraction coming to Pigeon Forge offers guests the opportunity to bike or ride all-terrain vehicles through the great outdoors! WildSide, a Pigeon Forge adventure park scheduled to open July 29, 2024, will feature both mountain biking trails and utility task vehicle (UTV) trails! Here is everything you need to know about WildSide:

What to Expect at WildSide

mountain biker on trailWildSide will give guests a chance to explore nearly 900 acres of untouched wilderness in a thrilling way! The Pigeon Forge adventure park will include 7 miles of mountain biking trails and 8 miles of UTV trails that traverse through the one-of-a-kind landscape and scenery of the Smoky Mountains!

This new attraction is an opportunity to experience some of the best Smoky Mountain adventures that aren’t readily available in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! There are no dedicated mountain biking trails in the park while the Gatlinburg Trail, the Oconaluftee River Trail and the lower Deep Creek Trail are the only park trails that allow bicycles. While UTVs are allowed on some roads in the park, trails can be hard to come by.


Guests can ride pedal-assisted electric mountain bikes or bring their personal bikes to WildSide. Pedal through mountainous terrain as you immerse yourself in the magic of nature in the Smokies!

Guided UTV rides are led by experts and require a driver’s license. Those under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Kids 10 and up can drive UTVs on a separate controlled track at the Pigeon Forge adventure park.

Prepare to get muddy at WildSide as you’ll enjoy an awesome off-roading experience that provides thrills and heart-warming views of the Smokies along the way! WildSide is scheduled to open on July 29, 2024 at 1105 Laurel Lick Road in Pigeon Forge.
