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.

Jayell Ranch is located right next to Dollywood, the world famous attraction in the Smokies. We are family owned and operated, and Safety & Customer Satisfaction is our #1 concern.

Jayell Ranch is the place to be!!!

I absolutely loved riding the trail at Jayell Ranch!!
My friends and I came out 09/10/19 to go horseback back riding. It had been a while since any of us rode but the guides are wonderful and extremely knowledgeable about the horses and their personalities. JC(?), our guide made the ride a great experience.
I rode Midnight, a gorgeous Tennessee Walker and he's the best.
I absolutely recommend this ranch and hope to come back soon.

Great Ziplines

My two daughters and I had a great time on the Ziplines. Guides were friendly and fun. Water was provided at every other zip. I loved the no reservations because we just showed up when we were ready. I got photos of us ziplining for a reasonable price. I have two complaints. The zipling guides make server’s wages which I wouldn’t know unless the guides told me. Why would I think that they make server’s wages? They are not servers. After paying over $160 for the three of us to go ziplining, I had to tip the guides or else they wouldn’t make any money. The guides are responsible for the patron’s safety. I would think you would want to pay them a decent wage. Second complaint is that a patron in our zipling group was clearly over the weight limit by several pounds. My husband didn’t join us because he is about ten pounds over the 275 weight limit which is clearly marked on the website and when you walk up to sign the waiver and pay. Why have rules if you are not going to follow them? The over the weight limit patron went down all zips without any problems which means my husband could have joined us. Overall, we had a great time. Would definitely recommend this place.
