How can you enjoy the best views of the Great Smoky Mountains? Get back in the saddle! One of the best ways to enjoy the warm weather and stunning views of summer in the Smokies is horseback riding in Pigeon Forge. This leisurely paced activity is perfect for families and groups who want to explore one of the most breathtaking areas in the country without a care.
Horseback riding may not be the first thing you think about when exploring the Smoky Mountains. Instead of an auto tour or hike consider the fresh air, breathtaking scenery that are offered with a horse trail. In a single ride, you might find yourself taking in expansive views of the highest mountains in the region, meandering through wildflower valleys and making new two and four-legged friends.
Thoroughly enjoy the Smokies by losing yourself in nature with acres of peaceful trails and quiet mountain serenity. Though the trails seem to be miles away from the city, many of the attractions with horseback riding in Pigeon Forge are near the Parkway.
