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 220 acres of trees and mountain views.
In addition to friendly horses and breathtaking vistas, Jayell Ranch also hosts the longest zipline in the Smokies. To get to the launch point, guests board a 2.5-ton military monster truck and ride to the top of the mountain before strapping in and sailing to the bottom, feeling the thrill of life as a flying squirrel.
Jayell Ranch is located right next to Dollywood, the world famous attraction in the Smokies. We are family owned and operated, and customer satisfaction and safety is our #1 concern.
The reason I love Jayell Ranch is because ya'll have a better scenery on the horse back rides don't have to worry bout falling of the edge of the mountain. The ziplines are amazing!!!! Also the employees are great, funny and very entertaining. Thank ya'll Chad, Adam and Mason
My group and i went on our first day of vacation. it was absolutely amazing. Susan was our guide. she did an awesome job! My 4 year old loved our horse, Red. plus it started snowing during our ride which made it even better! i highly recommend this place to anybody looking to ride horses on their vacation to the smoky mountains :)
Me and my daughter were in Gatlinburg and heard about the ranch from our cabin. We wanted something fun & low key to do so this was perfect, and my daughter was really looking forward to going horseback riding. Everyone there is so friendly and Susan, our guide, was really nice & informative… very down to earth people. I was a little scared but we had a great time… the view of the mountains when you get to the top was pretty. I was on "Sox" and my daughter had "Camanche". Thanks for a great experience, would definitely recommend and return again in the future.
