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.
Very relaxing trail ride with our horses, Diesel and Rosie. Our guide, Nadia was very friendly and helpful. The ziplines were were great. Our guides Christoff and Einstein were very friendly and nice to work with. We are new to horseback riding and ziplines so the staff made the experience a very pleasant one. We would highly recommend Jayell Ranch.
This was our first time zip lining and we were nervous about what to expect. We chose Jayell because it was very affordable for us. With that said, we were unsure if the low cost would mean low quality service. We were so wrong! The crew members treated us professionally and with enthusiasm and excitement. The zip lines themselves were amazing! They took us from the small ones to the larger ones allowing us to become comfortable along the way. They understood we had small children, but still allowed them to experience it with us. Since then we have been zip lining in other places and have felt very restricted and just herded like cattle through the line instead of like people who want to learn and enjoy themselves. Nothing compares to our experience with Jayell - we hope to be able to come back one day and do it again!!!
We had an awesome time on the ranch, zip lining was a first for me and my husband, but your guys made it very fun and safe, will defiantly do it again next time were in Tennessee. Our guides were very entertaining, not good with names but do remember coal miners daughter. lol
