High up in the Smoky Mountains, between thick patches of leafy trees and evergreens, lives a herd of horses that spend their days strolling through trails without a thought for the bustle of city life below. Up there, the Jayell Ranch horses carry tour groups along a 4-mile trail, showing them more than 260 acres of trees and mountain views.
In addition to friendly horses and breathtaking vistas, Jayell Ranch also hosts the longest zipline in the Smokies.

The experience here was AMAZING. The views are beautiful but the staff is what really made our trip awesome. So sweet & kind! Made us feel completely safe. Our 6 year old son loved it so much he wanted to be first down the ziplines. If you are looking for a great place to go ziplining and it be kid friendly then look no further!!!
We loved Jayell Ranch, because we had so much fun. Jessie took us on the ATV and UTV tour, and was very helpful. He even stopped to take our family picture. It's rare that we are all in one picture together. We were able to make so many family memories. We liked the muddy trails.
Then, Megan took us on the horseback riding trails. She did great. I had a special needs daughter that they were very cautious with, and it put this mama at ease. She rode Trigger that was very calm for her. Also my five year old rode with her dad. Surprisingly, this was my first time ever riding a horse as well. I didn't have any issues. Now, Megan got off to help some of the others, and well her horse left, so she walked the entire trip back...many kudos for her. Thanks to all those at Jayell Ranch that made all 3 of my daughters enjoy their day!!!
Jayell ranch is great! My husband and I went horseback riding with our four kids and we had a great time. They have a small petting zoo for the kids along with a little zip line/playground for while you’re waiting. The horseback ride was an hour and the guide was great! Our guide’s name was Kristen.
