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.
Had an amazing time at the Ranch horse backing riding. We had a great guide named Matt. He really knows his stuff and is super friendly. I would recommend Jayell Ranch to anybody. Very friendly staff. Enjoy! We sure did!! If we are ever in Gatlinburg again we will surely go to the Ranch again. Thanks for a great time!!
My husband & I just finished our day @ Jayell Ranch. The views from horseback were beautiful. We also completed 6 lines of zip lines with Goober & Appleseed & had a blast! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a fun, safe day of outdoors activities.
Amazing Time!!! Check out how much fun i had Zip-lining!!!
