We so love this Ranch

The Jayellranch is a awesome place. The atmosphere is so pleasant and everyone is always really nice. The horses are beautiful. If you have to wait to ride your horse.. they have plenty of stuff to keep you entertained while you wait. The cowboys & cowgirls bathroom is really clean. We love this place. That’s why we always return. ????????

Awesome Time!

Second time visitng. Mini and fresh were both fun and humorous guides on the zip lines. Jordan on the horseback ride made it seem like we were all just old friends catching up again. Wonderful time. Will visit again.

I love jayell ranch

My daughter n law, two granddaughters 7 and 3 and my self 58 year old grandmother just returned from a horseback riding experience at Jayell Ranch. I could not have been more pleased with our experience. Jordan was our guide and was great! The horses were super gentle and beautiful! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Fantastic day of fun outdoors!

My wife and I wanted to do something active for the day and, thankfully, found Jayell Ranch online. They are close to "the strip" which made it very easy. We decided to go all out and get a bundle. We went back to our hotel (only 9 minutes of dirty mess in the car!) tired from an afternoon of fun and adventure.

We did ATV, zip line and horses. It was a solid 5 hours (wish I had taken snacks and drinks). Everything was fun, safe and engaging. Staff was happy and energetic. The other guests were mostly polite and happy as well.

A few important notes:

Start early and be patient. By 1:00, people started pouring in and the activities seemed to begin when the group was full, not when the clock hit the magic time. There are limited guides and each adventures takes about an hour. You might have to wait 30+ minutes if the 3rd group just left. Bring a cooler/lunch if you are doing a bundle. Use the wait to relax, power back up and enjoy the ranch atmosphere. Horses seemed to be the busiest, so check there before doing something else.

Tipping - There are signs up everywhere. It is brought up before adventures set out. They do a really great job. I do wish I had known ahead of time (I only took ID and CC).

Dirty - It is OUTDOOR ADVENTURES. Have the right expectations. You will get dirty.

Physical - Again, OUTDOOR ADVENTURES. You will have to walk up and down hills, stand for extended periods and various other things that might be challenging for some people. The staf

Not afraid of kids with disabilities

While vacationing in Tennessee, we came to Jeyall for horseback riding. We originally went to a different location and were turned away because my son who has downs was shy and wasn't communicating with them. So we came here and it was a whole different(wonderful) experience. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and ready to make our experience enjoyable. They made him comfortable before he got on the horse and were just being friendly with him. He had a great time horseback riding. They even have horses for kids that are autistic or afraid to go horseback riding. Thank you again for a wonderful time.. You guys are all amazing.

We'll be back!

We visited and had an absolute great time. Cowboy Troy was great with our youngest (7) and was back and forth ribbing our oldest (12). The kids as well as Mom and Dad loved the Horse ride, and the views during the ride were great! It was our family's first time on ziplines and we had great guides. They were great to interact with, fun conversation and always safety first. Our visit to the ranch was a total blast, we would recommend this destination to anyone visiting the area.

Sam needs a pay raise!

We were a family of four visiting from Philadelphia. On Sunday we ventured to your ranch as our seven year old really wanted to horseback ride. The rest of us signed on with trepidation. While only two minutes into the ride, one of the horses was spooked and took off with a young girl. Sam and Adam handled the situation beautifully and assured those of us ready to turn around and call it a day that everything would be okay. We contuinued on and Sam stepped up to the plate and walked next to my oldest daughters (11) horse the entire four miles in order to assure her all would be well. It really was a beautiful ride and the staff was extremely responsible. By far, however, we are fans of Sam and her southern charm. The girl knows how to handle horses, handle her male colleagues and give visitors a wonderful tour. Give the girl a raise! She deserved it that day.

Favorite Part of our Trip

We took our kids to Jayell Ranch for their first real Zip line and outdoor horseback riding experience. From the time we got there to the time we left the people kept us laughing and even in the rain, we had a great time. Adam and Ben were awesome on the Zip line. When we went to ride the horses Mike (I think that's his name??) warned us the horses may slip some since the trail was so muddy and wet and our 8 year old decided there was no way she was getting on the horse. He was so kind and patient with her and finally convinced her to just sit on his horse, Cornbread, so I could get a picture. She agreed to sit on it, then Adam said he would stay with her along the entire trail so she wouldn't be afraid and she agreed to go. She went, Adam stayed with her, and she loved it! She has told everyone she's talked to since she got home about riding Cornbread, the Dixie Stampede Horse. Pops took the rest of us on the ride, including my 6 yr old on his own horse, and patiently answered my kids questions the entire ride. The zip line and horseback ride were great, but the people who work there really made the experience awesome for us. Thank you for making great memories for our family!

Awesome!

2 seniors with 9 & 10 y/o grandsons - on this trip we wanted to find several things the boys had never done before. Jayell offered both horseback riding and ziplines. Staff were super friendly, helpful and professional and the boys had such fun! Zip equipment is well maintained; the horses healthy, groomed, and well-trained for the ride. One thing: the riding is basically one horse following the next in a long line. IOW, the horse runs the show unless it slows down, speeds up, or leaves the line. You just sit there. So don't "argue" with the horse by reining them (not even if you've been riding all your life). But the ride thru the woods and up is lovely, and you're going to enjoy it anyway. Would go back, but next time will do all six ziplines! Thank you, Jayell Ranch!

- By Travis on

Wonderful place!

Our family went on the horseback ride while on vacation. It was a great experience. The staff is knowledgeable, cares about the ssafety of both rider and the animal, and still are down to earth and some funny characters. They took great pics of us to memorialize our adventure at a reasonable price. Thank you for an awesome time!

- By Crystal Cole on

Great fun at Is Tell Ranch

We took four teenagers, 3 of whom had never ridden before. The staff was so fun and put them all at ease. We had a great ride with just the 6 of us, and the horses had great personalities. We would definitely recommend Jayell for anyone. Great value too!

- By The White House on

Great Experience

This place is totally handicap friendly. The zipline team on 27th of July, drove me to and carried me up every tower. The experience was awesome. Thank you Jayell for a time of a lifetime!

- By Paul Shafer on

Love Jayell Ranch

I have been to Jayell ranch 3 times and I've had a great experience each time! Everyone who works there has a great personality and very friendly. I have done the horseback riding 3 times and the ATVs once. I highly recommend this ranch! I will definitely be back!! If I could give them 10 stars I would!

- By Michelle on

Fun time!

People working there were very nice. Took a lot of time explaining things. Fun ride!

- By Lori on

Loved visiting Jayell Ranch!

Me and my boyfriend came to Jayell Ranch. We heard about them from a pamphlet we found in Pigeon Forge. I think it was well worth the time spent there. Also worth the pay. The staff was awesome. We ziplined and rode the horseback trail ride. It was my first time ziplining and the staff worked very well at making sure I was comfortable before descending. The horses were well trained and friendly. The petting zoo was awesome. I enjoyed everything about Jayell Ranch.

Had a Blast at Jayell Ranch!

Staff was Awesome. Very patient with making sure we got the best package deal for the whole family. The UTV & ATV guides were fantastic. They were very considerate of beginner riders and made sure we all were safe and having fun. Kids also loved zip lining and horsebacking. Great place for the whole family to do stuff. Highly recommend this place.

Shamus and Bradly

Took my daughter here yesterday to just go horseback riding after getting the decided to use our coupon and zip line too!! Both of us scared the staff made us both feel so much better and in turn we had a blast...thank you Shamus and Bradly for making our first time awesome! And thank you very much to our horseback riding guide for taking us on the ride even though it was later then it should've been really appreciate it! You all were awesome the whole staff went out of their way to make us enjoy ourselves!!

- By Debi on

I Love Jayell Ranch!!????

My husband who always said he'd never horse back ride agreed to go as long as I tried zip lining. So was able to get the combo. Loved both. My horse acted prissy and refused to go through mud if there was any way around it ( and I mean ANY). She was awesome!! If I ever make it back to Tennessee I'd so come back to ride horses again. Loved the zip lining but would want to try the 6 lines next time. All guides we got were great with us

- By Tina on

Loved the horses!

The horses were amazing! I am not the best rider but I had no trouble with my Whiskey, and I rode double with my two year old! Jason was a very capable guide. We had a bit of a blizzare, no typical, ride. Our first guide left her horse to help a guest go back. Jason was able to find ways to get us and all the horses back drama free. My only recommendation is get more experienced staff. My husband and daughter absolutely loved the zip line!

- By Alicia Pearce on

The horse ride was amazing!!!

Kenzie was a great guide. We had a group of 4, and I was the only one that had ever ridden a horse. My 9 year old was scared af first, but Kenzie and Adam helped calm her nerves. My 5 year old rode double with me. My husband we even comfortable on his horse. They all LOVED the ride and are ready to go back. Thanks Jayell Ranch and staff!!!!!

This place is the best.

I would like to thank Jayell Ranch for the best birthday. My husband and I was there yesterday from Ohio. We had a great time. We'll be back.

Horseback riding iffy, ziplining great

We came to Jayell ranch and bought the horseback riding and zip lining combo package. When we got our wristbands, we were told to go "get a number" for horseback riding, and that the wait would be 25 minutes. After 1.5 hours our number was finally called, and they had only sent one horseback tour out in that time, even though the website says they leave every 15-20 minutes. After our number was called, we stood on the dock for about 30 minutes waiting for them to put us on horse, while we saw some employees standing around the barn smoking. Then it took about another 30 minutes to get our whole group on horses. And while on the horseback ride, it is mostly through a heavily wooded area, without mountain views that we were expecting. Then because this process took 3.5 hours, we had to come back another day to do the zip line, however, when we came back for the zip line tour it was great, and the guides were great.

Definitely recommend

2nd time here. Nice place with great people. Highly recommend.

- By Tyler Nicholson on

So much fun!!

The staff was very friendly and had lots of personality. The horseback riding was smooth and a fun experience. The ziplining wasn't as scary as I thought it would be????! Highly recommend Jayell Ranch for anyone seeking a chill and fun time.

- By Macie on

Loads of fun!

We were here for a family vacation and had called around looking for zip lining and horse back riding for 5 that wouldn't cost a small fortune! One place would've been 90 per person so we called Jayell ranch it was so much cheaper and if you sign the waiver online you get 5 dollars off, and you didn't need a reservation and we didn't have to wait forever to do anything! The guides skittles and doiser(not sure if that's the correct nickname) were funny but very safe for the zip lines and our guide for the horse back riding was great as well! We will definitely be back again to do the 6 lines for zip lining as the three were just not enough! The mountain view while riding was breathtaking and the whole family had an amazing time! The horses were trained and so you didn't really have to do much they kinda know what to do so this is perfect for people who have no experience and the kids ages 10, 13 and 16 had a blast so it's fun for all ages! Thanks to the great staff for a wonderful day! The myers!

Highly recommend horseback riding

Kenzie was really sweet to us and was nice to get to talk to her during our ride. She is the best tour guide I've had compared to others.

Love It!!

First time to zip line; did all 6 lines! Skittles, Jules and Andrew were true professionals and made our experience a lot of fun!! Beautiful view of the mountains!! Would definitely revisit Jayall Ranch!!!!

- By Tracy Mills on

Wonderful Experience

My husband and I did the horse trail and ziplines. I am afraid of horses so I was apprehensive about the ride. However, it is our 42nd Anniversary and it it something my husband wanted to do. Our guide was Jay and he eased my nerves. He was excellent, talking with me the entire trail. Jay, you don't know how much I appreciate your patience.
All of the staff were very friendly. I highly recommend Jayell Ranch.

#A Must Experience

Great experience, affordable prices. I enjoyed every moment of my time here. I got a combo deal with atv ride and also zip-line which was only $100. Each activity was a hour long in which the staff was super friendly and helpful throughout the entire tour. If you are ever in the area this is the place to experience.

- By Keshia Jones on

Amazing place!!

I do not know where to begin, my family absolutely loved Jayell Ranch, you guys have forever customers for sure!! The staffirst were so amazing, special thanks to Adam and "Julie" on zips, you guys were awesome, and hilarious!! Also I want to say a very special thank you to Jason Bailey, hope that's spelled right, he made my daughters first horse back ride (by herself) so special, she can't stop talking about it!! He was so kind and helped her so much to get over the fear she had. By the time we left, she was in love with riding! We had such an amazing time, so much so we spent two days there!! I will definitely come back, I look forward to seeing everyone again!! This is definitely a stop any family should make!!

- By Guess and Thompson family on

Had an amazing time zip lining with Julian and Chappo! They both clearly loved their job and went above and beyond to make sure we had the time of our lives. We had just gotten engaged and we were looking for something thrilling and enjoyable to do. They fulfilled our expectations and exceeded them. However. when we reached the last of the zip lines (in between 5 and 6) we met up with what seemed
to be a very angry boss. A little argument would've completely been overlooked by me. I work in the customer service industry and I have for a long time. But this argument was so ridiculous and almost ruined our entire experience. Constant screaming back and forth between an employee and boss is no way to solve a problem-especially in front of guests who pay to be there and are on vacations from their own lives. I was then the first to go down the zip line after this argument and had the "boss" catch me. What did he have to say to me? "What's wrong?" I wish I would've said "YOU ARE WHAT'S WRONG". Take a few lessons in customer service dude. Oh and the children know how to count. You don't need to try and involve them in your arguments to make you feel better about screaming at your employees on front of your customers that have paid to be there and enjoy themselves.

So much fun!

Me and my mom took my boys (1 and 3) horseback riding this past weekend and they loved it. We had been here in the past and loved it then 2! The staff is amazing! We will definitely go again the next time we are down there!

ATV and ZIPLINE FUN

We went to Jayell ranch while on family vacation. We rode ATV's and did the 3 zipline combo pack. My wife and boys ages 12 and 15 had a blast riding the ATV's... LANCE our guide was awesome, he asked if we had ever rode them before and we had, we own 3 of them... on our ride Lance could tell we had expierence so he let us open em up a lil bit. the 1 hour trail is fairly rugged and we had soooo much fun, Thanks Lance!!!
Ziplines were awesome as well, ADAM and CHRISTOFF were our zipline guides and both made sure we were safe.... They were very funny as well, telling jokes while we waited.
I would highly recommend Jayell ranch to anyone looking for a very fun adventure.
Thanks LANCE, ADAM, and CHRISTOFF, you made our expierence very pleasurable...

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!

We did the horseback riding and zip line package for our first day in Tennessee! It was the best experience we could have ever imagined. The weather was perfect, ray led our ride on the trails and he was so funny and welcoming! We had Adam and Bailey for the zip lines and they were hilarious, upbeat, and very friendly!!! They made sure we felt safe and we had a ton of fun with them! Our experience was so amazing that we're coming back again before we head back home next week!! Great prices and great people for a great and unforgettable experience!!

Best time we had on vacay

Y'all I don't normally take out time to write reviews,but me and my boyfriend came to the Smokies for our 5 year anniversary. We're from myrtle beach and were very surprised to see most of the area was very much the same as what we have back home so after reading some reviews we decided to come to Jauell ranch to try something different. All I can say is MONEY WELL SPENT. We did the horseback riding and the half zip line. The only disappointing part was we only did the half zip definitely spring for the full 6 because you're not gonna want to stop! I believe our horseback guide was rau, and he was the nicest gentleman ever. Despite the trail being muddy the horses did amazing. I rode blue and they put my boyfriend (whos never been on a horse a day in his life, my family free up around them) on cornbread. The mountain views from the trail are amazing and we even saw some deer! The zip line instructors Chase and Taco were so funny and so much fun. Was the only adventure on our trip were weren't disappointed with at all and the price isn't too expensive for what you get. Worth every penny and we'll definitely be coming back with our daughter. THANKS FOR MAKING OUR ANNIVERSARY MEMORABLE!!

Amazing Experience

We are on our first vacation and really wanted to go horseback riding and the ziplines. Jayell Ranch was great and personable. Kenzi was our tour guide for the horses and she was very fun and easy to talk to which made the experience very pleasant. For the ziplines we started with Kenzi and Choppo until Kenzi switched out with Adam even then we had fun. The trip there wouldn't have been the same without our guides. Thank you!

Great time!

My wife and I visited here today while on our honeymoon and went horseback riding and had an absolute blast! Our guides name was Cole and he did a great job! Highly recommend!

Awesome, Jayell Zipline and Horseback!

Our 2 Zipline guides, Nicolas and Dustin were very entertaining, yet helpful and hands-on.
Dakota was a great and fun tour guide with our horses. Our horses, Med.Hat and Comanche were awesome!
I'd come back here again and again, plus definitely recommend to friends and family, or anyone looking for a very enjoyable and fun zip line adventure, as well as serene horseback ride through the woods and and hills.

Brings back memories

Me and my friends were in the Great Smoky Mountains during our fall break vacation. We decided to do horseback riding at Jayell Ranch. I was very interested because I wanted to reminisce some memories when I took lessons in Minnesota. I asked the horse staff out of curiosity what is the biggest horse on the ranch. Before you know it, I was asked if I was interested in riding the biggest horse during the adventure (which I gladly accepted). Once I hopped on Diesel (the horse's name), memories from 10+ years ago started to come back to me. One woman made a joke about the horse I rode why the horse's name was Diesel (because I was told he was the biggest horse in the ranch). Dakota, our guide, was very helpful and friendly. Especially since my horse was close to him every time we stopped and continued (turns out that our guide was Diesel's owner (hopefully I'm right about this) I could be wrong). I haven't ridden a horse since 2005, and it is easy for me to say that this is the best time of my life!

I wanted to thank Dakota and all the staff at Jayell Ranch for making this horseback riding experience the best one! And a big shout out to Diesel for carrying a big guy like me through out the adventure! :D

I will be more than happy to return to the ranch when I am in the Great Smoky Mountain area!

Speaking of which, if anyone happens to vacation in the area, you must go there! The ranch has a variety of activity (I wanted to do zip-line, but couldn't because we had to leav

Fun family time

Me my wife and two daughters (13 and 7) went for a hourseback ride and had a wonderful time. The trails were laid out well and our guide Keith was very nice. Afterward we rode the zip lines and the young men that went with us on the zip lines were very nice and patient with all of us. This is a great place to to take the whole family and spend some time having fun. The whole staff was quite exceptional and. Dry patient with us. We will return on our next trip as I think my 7 year old wants to ride a bourse by herself.

- By Joey young on

Awesome Time!

We did zip lining and horseback riding. Both were a lot of fun. The 6 zip line course was definitely worth it. Christoph and Chris were our zip line guides and made it a fun experience.

- By Derek Curtiss on

Zip Lining marked off bucket list

Jayell Ranch was amazing..I have always wanted to Zip Line before my big 50th Birthday. While my husband and I were on vacation in the smokeys, he decided that if that was what I wanted to do, he would take pictures.. IT WAS AMAZING.. the best early birthday present ever and the tour guides for the lines were fantastic.. Only regret I have is that I should have done all 6 lines instead of three.. will definitely be back and will do all 6 lines the next time.. Highly recommend anyone that is vacationing near Pigeon Forge to check out Jayell Ranch.. So worth it.. They treat you like your the only one that matters.

- By Becky Wallace on

My wife and I went there and had great time did all 3 adventures there and had great experience in all them... would recommend this to anyone cheap prices and great time!!

Hey! How was It!!!

We decided to do the zip line and four wheeling. Oh Blue was on the catch end and every single person he said" Hey ! How was It." So that became the theme for day and our group. We then moved to the four wheeling , which was a long wait not very comfortable in heat but once we Got on our Guide Buck did an excellent job and made very interesting ride.. Great Time btw Hey How was It !!!!!

- By Dickson Tn on

Outstanding

Had a great time today with Buck and the great staff at Jayell Ranch! We went ATVing and Buck gave us an outstanding trip! Challenging at times, he guided our group of varying skill levels through some beautiful trails and awesome views of the mountains. Would definitely recommend it and will be coming back again! Had a blast!!!

- By The Langfitt's on

Amazing

Honestly the best experience ever! We were a group of 14 who did ATV's, Ziplining, & Horseback Riding. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Kept everyone entertained. The wait times were a little long but what do you expect with a large group. Our kids were entertained with all the extras the ranch had. They were running around in the pigpen trying to catch the little pig so they could take it home. Thanks Adam for the laughs. Thank you to the older couple at the pictures who were just so sweet to talk to .... Corinna the California girl!

- By LEARY Family!! on

Although the people were all extremely friendly. The wait was too long. For horseback riding, there were 8 people ahead of us in line and we waited over an hour before we got on and then another 30 sitting on the horse. For zipp lining we waited an hour and half. What they say takes 2 1/2 hours took us 5 hours. Disgruntled folks were leaving throughout because they had to leave.

- By Maureen on

Jayell Ranch was awesome!

Today my boyfriend and I did the horse back riding ATV combo. This was well worth the money! We loved the trails for the ATV riding and how long it was. It was awesome. Our tour guide was PK. From the ticket booth to the employees just walking around everyone had a smile on their face. We absolutely loved every minute of it. We will definitely be back. There are a few places for ATV tours around here but this one is a must!

- By Rose on

I Love Jayell Ranch

We had a great time riding the ATV's a Jayell Ranch. The people that worked the ATV's were so nice and helpful. They were very patient with me, since I had not ridden one in about 30 years. The ride was long, exciting, and well worth the money. Can't wait to go again. Thank you Jayell Ranch and the boys at the ATV ride for a wonderful experience.

Wow

Such an amazing place people bring ur family and have a blast I know we did, good price and tons of energy and great people ,hands down the best ,thanks for the amazing trip guys

- By James on

Disappointed

we did the horseback riding and 3 zip line combo i called to see if we needed reservations the lady on the phone told me no we could just show up. When we arrived we paid for our combo and went towards the riding stable.we had to wait in line for 1 hour before we even reached the stables and then they put my child on a horse and sat him directly in the sun. He sat there for 45 minutes and they kept telling us we were almost ready . The ride was just ok nothing spectacular.TORI our guide was very helpful,funny,and made our child feel special. After horseback riding we headed for the zip line we waited in line for about 20minutes and then we had to Walk up a very long hillside to get to the first zip line. The zip lines were fun but the views could have been way better nothing but trees. We arrived at the last zip line and they told 2 members of my group they couldn't go on this one due to the wait limit. for one neither men exceeded the weight limit and for two they didn't say anything at the beginning. They said they would send someone on a ATV to come and pick them up they waited at the top of the hill for 30-45 min for them to come and get them.mind you it was at least 100 degrees! I will not be back due to the lack of caring they have for there customers.

My awesome experience at the Jayell Ranch!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Ranch and it was exactly that. I failed to get all the names of everyone who helped us, but they were all great. We were allowed to ride as individuals and it did not feel as if we were being guided as much as riding along with friends on a their private piece of property. Christof on the Zip-line was great and kept my boys intrigued. Jordan on the trail ride was awesome and he was great with the all kids. I grew up riding horses and ATV's and the experience was more than I had expected. I will definitely plan to go back the next time I'm in Tennessee, as a matter a fact, it will be a MUST do for my family.

Great day experience

Our family of five from Florida spent several hours at the ranch. We went horseback riding and ATV riding.
As beginners on horseback, we were treated very well. McKenzie was our leader and she was awesome. They picked out great horses for us and we enjoyed a beautiful day and experience.
Our kids, all girls, are 8,11, and 14. Apprehensive at first but loved it in the end. They can't wait until next time.
PK was our ATV leader and was great. He was very careful and safe with everyone. He made sure all was having a great time. The girls now want an ATV. We all had a blast. Wife and kids smiling all day and still talking about it.
Everyone associated with Jayell Ranch was kind, friendly and welcoming. We can't say anything negative about the place. Even enjoyed the farm animals on the ranch. Would definitely recommend this experience and can't wait to do it again. Zip lines next. If you enjoy your experience, please tip your leaders. They work hard to to make a great experience.

wonderful experience!

We just came back home(Miami) . We had a great time at this place. We want to go back. I want to thank Buck ( the ATV guide). He was amazing . I definitely recommend this place!

- By Adriana on

Great time on the ATV ride, beautiful views! The whole family had a blast! Buck was a great guide!

- By Shannon C. on

Great time

We had a great time 3 women and 2 teenage girls - ziplined, horseback, and atvs for the first time. The guides were great funny and helpful. Will definitely be back....

- By Julie Self on

Great Ride

Expected a boring ride in the Smokeys at a snails pace. Buck (our guide) delivered an exciting ride through challenging trails and allowed us to ride within our abilities. Just rained so there was plenty of slip sliding throwing mud. Was definitely worth the cost. Will be back again.

Horseback Riding

We had a great time Horseback riding. It was my 6 year old granddaughter's first time on a horse alone. Kenzie our guide was great. She had my granddaughter follow right behind her. The horses are well trained. The ride took about an hour. Very enjoyable ride. Great scenery. Look forward to returning next year.

- By Rob W on

Worst experience

We were a group of 14 people who did 6 lane zip lines, there were only 2 people to lead us from start to end. After each zip line we had to wait for about 40 min for our next one as we all had to finish ours and the 2 guys who led us has to switch places. Our over all time was about 5 hours and we had to skip horse ride because of this.

This is the worst experience. I would not recomment this at all.

- By Abhinay on

Great Job

Our party was a group of 12 adults and 2 children, 1 which was 5 yrs. old and 1 that was 2 yrs. old. We were really nervous since no one in our party had been on a horse in 10+ years.... let alone a 5 yr. old who has never been on a horse in her life. Toria (sp?) was our guide and she put the 5 yr. old directly behind her lead horse. Despite being a slow walk, it was a really good trail - both open spaces where the horses went a little faster, and closed / forest spaces that were more difficult to navigate. Toria did great and made sure everyone was safe and progressing on the ride. The horses were great and all of them behaved very well. I was the only double rider with me and my 2 yr. old son - our horse, named Haus, was really good the entire ride. Overall great experience, would definitely recommend this place and will return in future trips. Bonus: at the end of the ride Toria gave my 5 yr. old daughter an old horseshoe from the stables.... which really made her day. Thanks so much for a great experience on our Gatlinburg vacation.

- By John Kelley on

Great horse ride!

Our family including 3 & 6 year old girls loved our ride. Neither of the girls had ridden before. 6 year old was given instructions before we left and put at front behind guide who kept praising her great riding! 3 year old rode with dad. As soon as we got off both girls said they wanted to go again. We would definitely recommend this place. Our guide, Chuck, was great!

- By Jessica on

Best in town, Our 2nd visit since 2013 and it still feels like our first time, they are very family friendly and down to earth great prices also we did ATVS AND the 6 ZIPLINES plus horse back loved it has 2 of the longest ZIPLINES around wear old shoes and clothes you will be dirty and dusty once you leave and I'm a gadgets type of guy it's GoPro friendly also bring your own or rent there's last do the online waiver for $5 off every bit helps

- By Markel Ricks on

Frustrating start but Good finish

We enjoyed the peaceful ride, friendly stable guys, and nice guide. It was very frustrating to call the ranch twice about the Jackson Mountain Homes free ride deal and be led to believe that everybody in our party would be riding free today when they expected us to provide a special paper that nobody ever mentioned AND it tuned out that we only were eligible for 1 free ride for 1 person. It just would have been nice to know ahead of time.

- By Kelly Lester on

Awesome ride

My wife and I thought we would try ATV ride. Decided after reading reviews that jayell ranch was the best and it was. Our ATV guide Buck did a super job at showing riders whom have never ridden all the ins and outs of the ATVs and explained all safety rules etc. He made the ride very enjoyable and everyone returned safely. Great job Buck and a when we come back again we will be sure to ask for you. Thanks for the great time

- By Richard Branch on

Amazin!

I went horse back riding and it was the best! Our guide, Jordan, was by far the greatest tour guide weve experienced while on vacation here. He was very funny, sweet, and was definitely the friendliest person ive met thus far. I cant wait to come back and go riding again!

- By Katie on

great time!!!!

We loved the horseback riding......great guide took us out! My husband and son had a great time in the atv tour......would definitely love to come back soon!!!!

- By kim on

great horse back riding

We did the zipline and horseback riding and enjoyed ourselves very much. Although the zip line was not for me, if they had told us that we had to walk a very steep uphill climb to get to the first platform I probably would not have done this. Maybe they should let you know about the hill (in case you have bad knees or hips or breathing problems)before you sign up. But that was just my experience. The horses were great and we had a great trail ride. We will come back next year but just for the horse back riding.

- By Lynn Camp on

Best place to go!

We did the zip lines first had some of the best guides! Token, Sparky, T-Rex and Squirt made sure we had the best possible time! All while making sure we were completely safe! Definitely will request them next time. We also did their horseback riding and had Sam as our guide! Definitely recommend her. So glad we gave this place a chance and will definitely be back!

- By Caitlin Wells on

Such a blast!

My family and I did everything, the zip line, ATVs and horseback riding. The staff is so friendly, we had the pleasure of having Token, Christophf, Kinzy, and Jordan as our tour guides. I would definatly recommend Jayell ranch to everyone! Thank y'all for a great day.

- By Victorya Lee on

Loved it!

My friend and I did the horseback riding/zip line combo. Horses were gentle and our guide was friendly and helpful.
The zip lines were amazing. We were both a little apprehensive but the guys put us at ease. We felt we were in very good hands. Can't wait to zip line again.

- By Shelby on

Too much fun!!!!!!

We were there yesterday with a large group for the 6 zipline courses. We had the best time and were lucky to have a guide named Token. What a great guide and great experience. Everyone was raving about it! Thank you so much Jayell Ranch and Token for such a special time!

- By jwmott on

The best time ever!

I went there today with my family, and if was the most fun thing we have done! The guide treated us like we were family!!! The whole staff was so friendly and caring. I'm going back in a few weeks. I recommend this place to anyone...definitely the best place to visit, and well worth the money.

- By Kellyscheuer on

Best part of my vacation!

I just wanted to say that you have an amazing group of people working there giving incredible experiences to visitors. Myself and 3 other girls had a great time zip lining and horseback riding. Bushy (or sparky we were told both were his name) and Adam were our instructors and they were very patient and kind. Bushy even encouraged us to go outside of our comfort zones, he had me go upside down on the second zip line and I was very proud of myself and grateful to him for pushing me though I didn't show it well. Matt was our guide on the horse back riding we had a very big group and I'm sure it was not easy for him to watch over us all but he did a great job with what he had, haha! But really great guys, you all should be very proud. I will definitely be recommending this to anyone I hear of going down to the Gatlinburg area! :)

- By Breanna on

Great experience!

Our guide was great! He was very informative and took great care of our 8 year old daughter who was riding alone for the first time. They take good care of the horses.

- By Chris Hoover on

Great time!!

We visited two other riding places before Jayell. The third time is the charm! The staff were great and the horses looked well taken care of. They didn't care if there were just 2 of us. Our guide was awesome! Can't wait to go back!!

- By Shannon and Linda on

Cant wait to go back!!

I took my family to the ranch and let my children ages 10 11 and 15 ride horses for the first time and the guide made me feel completely at ease. We will never forget the experience! The zip line crew was amazing, funny and very professional, I never once felt nervous. We will go back again for sure, well worth the money!!

- By Krystal Alzamora on

Beautiful horses, wonderful people!

Me and my boyfriend took a trip to Pigeon Forge for our anniversary and was looking to ride horses. So glad we came across this place! Wonderful experience and the horses were beautiful and well behaved. The people were friendly and really looking forward to visiting again soon!

- By Tara on

Jayell Ranch was AWESOME

Why I like Jayell Ranch is my youngest son (8) was not really wanting to ride so they let him double ride with me. Half way through the ride he told us when we get back home (Florida) maybe we can get him a horse like BILLY. He was calling him my buddy BILLY. Our guide MATT was AWESOME also really made everyone feel safe on the ride even the ones that haven't had much riding time.Would recommend Jayell Ranch and Matt as a guide any day..

- By John Hewitt on

Awesome time at Jayell Ranch!

My girls and I enjoyed a fantastic day at Jayell Ranch. We had a great experience riding the horses today and our guide, Ally, was awesome. She was so friendly and fun. Our horses were so well behaved and really pretty. My youngest daughter had never ridden a horse before. She was given Billy and had so much fun. She was never once scared and truly enjoyed her ride. We are from South Carolina and plan on returning again next year!

- By Terry Mobley on

Loved our time at Jayell Ranch.

We had an awesome time at Jayell Ranch. My first time zip lining! Our guides Kerri and Crenshaw were great! They helped me get over my fear and taught me how to zip line. They had our group laughing and enjoyed them so much! Matthew was our horse back ridding guide he was awesome also. We will come back when we visit the mountains again!

- By Becky on

Awesome Experience!!

What an awesome family friendly place! We were greeted by Jennifer and Kerry, who went above and beyond our expectations! We had a great time Zip Lining on all six lines! Can't wait until the new towers are finished! Our guides, Christoph and Keri, were the best and were a blast to spend time with! Everyone should definitely check out this Ranch!

- By Jonathan, Heather, Evan and Eli on

Great time from Lafayette, IN

My wife and I had a great time Zip Lining. Keri & Chris were great guides and made us enjoy the event even more.

- By Gerry Beck on

Excellent and we will comeback

FIRST I'D LIKE TO SAY THANKS FOR THE COMFORT AND SECURITY FROM MISS KARI AND CRISTOFF
YOU MADE THE ZIP LINE RIDES THE BEST!!! Secondly we went horseback riding and my little girl got scared and THANKS TO GABE SHE WAS JUST FINE and we enjoyed the rest of the ride. Beautiful views from the trails. Thanks for making our trip speacial... Marc, cash cookie and peggy!!!!

- By Marc on

Outstanding !

My younger sister and my dad and I went to Jayell Ranch while we were in town and went Zip lining (guides Travis and Cherokee) and horseback riding (Jason)--- Fantastic ! The trails were beautiful and breathtaking with all of the mountains on this hills that could be seen when zip lining and horseback riding. Safety was very important to all of the workers, they treated you like family and would joke around with you. I would defiantly recommend doing the 6 zip lines - not 3, because the last 3 are incredible! We've all decided that next time we visit we will always come back(:

- By Jess H. on

Treated like a King,with my Queen

I have alot of control issues due to my service to my Country. I was to say the least petrafied to allow myself to reliquish control.Some of the guides are Veterens themselves and fully understood some of my issues. My wife and I were there on our Honeymoon and we were made over as we say in the Country . And let me tell you that the guys working there on the Zip lines were complete gentleman when attaching the harness lines to my wife.
I also was so nervous that I completely forgot my camera for any pics. The guys there took pics of us on his camera, and then on their own time forwarded and then even contacted us afterwards to ensure our honeymoon memories arrived and viewable.
You may possibly find a cheaper price, but you will not find a group of people that will treat you like family while in Tenn

- By David Jones on

Great time!!

We had a great time doing ATV tour and zip line at Jayell Ranch. The staff were nice and answered all our questions. The activity guides were great and fun. I will definitely come back when visiting TN again and would recommended to anyone.

- By Punam Patel on

2nd visit as awesome as the first

Loved the ranch so much we went back two days later and rode the ATVs again. Jolly is so much fun and such a great trail guide.
Thanks for making this the highlight of the trip.
Will definitely be back when in the area!

- By Susan Davis on

Gotta visit Jayell Ranch while in Pigeon Forge!

Great place to horseback ride and ATV. Everyone of the staff I talked to were pleasant and personality plus. My trail guide's name was Davey and he was awesome! Very patient with the inexperienced riders and added some humor to the ride. If you are experienced this ride might be a little slow paced but the scenery and views make up for that.
Moved on to the ATV ride and "Jolly" was the guide. He was very friendly and kept the whole experience super! Lots of downhill and climbs, ruts and bumps. Slow enough for the inexperienced but paced just fast enough to keep you on your toes.
Highly recommend this ranch to anyone wanting to ride horses, ATVs, zipline, or off road go kart.
Thanks, Jayell Ranch. Best experience the week I was in Pigeon Forge!

- By Susan Davis on

Had a great time!

My family and I did the zipline and the ATV ride...we had a blast! My hats off to the Staff at Jayell Ranch...They did a great job working with us and keeping us safe on both the zipline and ATVs...Staff is very knowlegable and friendly. Can't wait to go back and do it again!

- By Ricky Lee on

Great job by Dave!

My family and I just got back from a ride with our guide Dave and we had an awesome time! It's been years since I've rode and my family has never ridden. They had little panic moments and Dave did a great job of being patient and guiding them through it! Amazing views! Morning temps were good and the staff was very friendly. The horses were the stars of the trip. Biscuit, Socks and a special thanks to Big Red who had to carry me! Loved it! Can't wait to do it again!

- By Harper Family on

Awesome!

Absolutely love Jayell ranch! I'm disabled i.e.in a wheelchair. Wyatt treated me wonderfully. He's put me in a go-cart, and thrown me down the mountain numerous times. Loved every minute. If you're up his way, do yourself a favor, check his place out. I guarantee a great time had by all!

- By Michael Woodring on

A GREAT Experience!!

My daddy and I went zip-lining on Jayell Ranch this past Friday and it was amazing. My daddy had never been zip-lining and he had a great time. Coalminer and Einstein were awesome to both of us and made sure we had a great time!! The gentleman that checked us in, was super nice, and easily answered our questions. It was great to spend time with just my daddy, and Jayelle made the experience all about us! I HIGHLY recommended the Ranch and their staff!! THANK YOU GUYS!!!

- By Machelle Morningstar on

Very nice afternoon

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.

- By The Thiel's, September 2014 on

Nothing compares to Jayell Ziplining!

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!!!

- By The Burk Family on

Great Time!!!

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

- By Sheila & Greg Prejean(a.k.a. the Fauckers) on

We had a great time!

What a great experience. This was the first time on a zip line for us and my children's first horseback ride. My wife is afraid of heights but Kristoff and Einstein were thorough and made it easy. The horses were very gentle and needed little steering to keep them on the trail. What a great day!

- By The McDonald\'s on

Highlight of our vacation!

First and foremost, what a terrific staff! There were 9 of us ages 8 to 60 and we all had a lot of fun with them. Also, It was very convenient to have so many different activities in one location and reasonably priced. We did horseback riding and zip lining. Although it was our first time zip lining we've been on several trail rides and that was one of the best with beautiful views. The horses were amazing!

- By The Cook family on

i loved the whole group of staff up at the ranch .

My wife, two kids and I went and zip lined just last weekend and it was the best thing we could have done. This place had the best staff who showed us how to be the most safe. They also made this so much fun by enjoying it with us and helping to watch out for our 2 little ones, which gave us peace of mind while we played. We thank you all very much because it was by far the highlight of our vacation. =) THANK YOU!!

Fantastic!

Absolutley a fantasic time. Such a friendly staff. Had a great time! Highly recommended

Had a super fun day riding the horses!!

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!!

- By Rick and Stacy Wolf on

Great Day!

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!!!

- By Wilson Tolbert on

Best Time Ever

We got the ATV and 6 Zipline package. Our day started with our guide Al on the ATV"s, he showed us all the trails and a veiw from the top of the mountain that takes your breath away. He was very knowledgable of the property and the trails. Also was very pleasant and funny to talk to, showed you he loved his job and made us feel welcome. It was the first time we ever Ziplined and our guides Tim and Chris were great. They were very knowledgable at what they were doing and were funny as could be. The expeirence they showed us that day was phenomanol. We are planning a trip back next year just because of the kindness and good times they showed us that day. Would recommend this expeirence to anyone looking to have a great time. Thanks for everything

Great Horse Riding Experience

Great Experience. Our guide Susan was Wonderful. I got to ride Blizzard. My family had a really good time since for most of us it was our first time on a horse. The horses are very well trained and the staff is super friendly and i would totally recommend the trail ride it a great experience for us.

- By Michelle Stovall on

Good Times!


Thanks to Adam, Chris, Matt and the rest of the staff for a wonderful day! We recommend the horses and the zip lines to any family for a great time. We'll see you next year or maybe sooner! Keep my saddle warm.

Great Family experience

My family and I took our 1st Zip line adventure at Jayell Ranch. The guys running the zip lines were very therough and explained everything we needed to know in detail. We had bought a package that included horse back riding as well. The entire operation is a family business and it shows in the care of the equipment and the horses. Terry was our guide on the trail ride and our yougest son who had never been on a horse that was not a on lead had a great experience. Sean and Susan were running the horse riding part of the operation and are both seasoned horse people. Their own horses live there as well and Sean offered to let me ride one of his own horses on a 2nd ride. Mom and our oldest boy went back out for a 2nd ride with Susan which Sean offered since they were not busy at the time. It was nice to see the horses so well cared for. We did not do the quads or side by sides but watched as Sean explained to new riders what to do before Matt took them out on the ATV trails. Matt was performing maintenance on the ATVs when we had arrived and everything about the operation was very reassuring from a safty standpoint. They offer a great family day out for everyone regardless of age and the activities were a great value

- By Eric Schwartz on

Horeback riding with Susan

Susan was a GREAT guide! The scenery is beautiful and the horses are very well-tempered. My husband and I rode on Lady and Speckles and really enjoyed adding this to our weekend vacation. We will be back for more riding, as well as zip lines. Be sure to request Susan as your guide - very friendly, knows the area and welcomes any and all questions. Thanks for the great memories!

- By Sarah G on

I love Jayell Ranch.

My sister and I went on the horse back ride and 6 zip lines. The crew at Jayell Ranch were welcoming, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I would recommend them to everyone I know.

- By Andrew Miller on

Beat horseback and atv riding!

We did the horseback and atv rides. The horses were great my wife had lady and I was on a big boy named diesel. The tour guide for the horses were great. The atv ride was a blast it was just me my wife and the guide. He took us off the trail a little to get some mud. Very fun thinking about going back tomorrow!

- By Paul and Mandy on

This placed rocked out. Sue, Shawn, Adam and Chris were all spectacular guides. Customer service went above and beyond. Strong recommend them to any family looking for something to do while in the area.

- By Justin hover on

Best place to ride

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

- By Angelina on

i love jayell ranch!

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 :)

- By Tiffany on

Great place, cool experience horseback riding

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.

- By Christina N on

We will be back :) Props to Chris & Adam

Ashley and I stopped in on March 3rd and had a great time. We went horse back riding then 6 zip lines. The ppl there are so friendly and down to earth, They made us feel at so welcome and at home. They made the visit worth it! The guide on the ride was so nice, I think her name was Susan. She took pics and text them to me. Adam and Chris took us on the zip line they made the trip a blast I will be back and I hope to have the same guides. But my girl Ashley would like for Chad to help on the zip line lol she thinks he is a cutie :) But don't feel left out Chris and Adam you are cuties too. Thanks for a great time see you soon......

SO MUCH FUN

My boyfriend and I went to Jayell Ranch yesterday and had an awesome experience. We bought the $49 deal which was one hour of horseback riding and then 3 ziplines but once we did 2 ziplines we ended up upgrading for $20 more to do the other 3 ziplines. I had never been ziplining before and I would recommend it to everyone! If you just do the horseback zipline combo you miss out on the 3 most fun (and longest) ziplines they have. Our guides were funny and I felt totally safe the whole time. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone!!

- By Haley on

We love Jayell Ranch!

We had a great time will recommend to our friends.

- By John and Christy Timmons on

The best time we had in the entire Gatlinburg area

We went as a group of 10 and enjoyed every bit of it. We had some nervous kids (as young as 5) and a few nervous adults! I was a bit worried about the 28 degree weather, but all of that faded away after the first line. Our "I can't do it" kids became the "I"m first" bunch by the time we hit the second line. By the third line, all of us were trying to slide upside down!

Adam and Chris were outstanding guides. Our kids appreciated seeing the farm animals, and all of us enjoyed the warm fire at the end of the line.

Thank you for the all of the fun and memories.

- By The Davis Family on

Love Jayell

On 12/23/2013 we went on the ziplines with Sean & Adam; they were great and the experience was awesome (2nd time ziplining and this place was the best). We then went on the ATVs - mudding with Sean; so much fun - the kids (small and big) loved it. We had such a great day we came back today on Christmas and went horseback riding and ATV'g again. Susan took us around on the horses and she was wonderful and the horses were very gentle. Sean took most of the family out on the ATVs again. They really know what they are doing and they couldn't have been any friendlier or accommodating! Thank you Jayell for two great days!

Friday 12-13-2013

I was their with two of my friends. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed very much our two instructors, they were the best. One of the things that stood out was the safety that was instilled by the instructors.
If you want to have fun and also feel that you will be safe, GO and have a ball.

Wonderful experience! Staff was awesome!!

First time horseback riders and Suzanne was very patient and helpful with all five of us! The Zip Line experience was great as well, had that on a bucket list, nearly declined to participate but..Hunter and Keven (hopefully that's his name) were very helpful and convinced me that safety was number one! Thank you for an awesome time!!

- By Karen Hill on

Amazing and Thrilling!

My time at Jayell was absolutely amazing, thrilling, and joyous! This was my first time on a zipline and every bit of it was incredible. I enjoyed it so much that I converted my trip from the half-course to the full 6 zipline course. My guides, RC and Hunter, were very knowledgeable and patient. I definitely plan to return in a few months!

- By Lisa S. on

Jayell Ranch Rocks!

Awesome experience all the way around!! Susan was great on the horseback riding and Adam and Chris were fun on the zip line.
I will come back to Jayell when I visit TN. You guys take your animals to heart and you have fun!
Very personable people! Thank you for great fun!!

- By Kris F & Wanda E - Atlanta GA on

AMAZING!!

My wife and I came here on our honeymoon to enjoy a nice horseback ride. We looked at all the other places in the area, and we chose Jayell Ranch because they were the only ones who would allow bigger guys to ride the horses. I weigh in about 270 lbs and they had no problem putting me up on a horse. I rode a beautiful mare named "Shadow" and she was awesome! My wife rode "Big Red" and he was great with her! Our tour guide Chuck was awesome!! He talked to us, answered all our questions, and was just a "Good Ol' Boy"! I would recommend this place to anyone!! If we ever get to that area, we will be back!!!

- By Rusty McAulay on

We loved it!

First time for us both ziplining, Adam and Joe were FANTASTIC guides! We will be back! Shawn was ever so AMAZING leading us on the horse trail, we loved Shadow and Troy!!! We can't wait to come back!!!

- By Pamela and Johnny on

Awesome!

My son and I took his 2 daughters here for an afternoon of horseback riding and zip lining. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. My granddaughters had never rode horses, let alone zip lined, before, so this excursion was their number one priority of things to do on our vacation and thanks to the crew at Jayell, they now have fond memories to share with their friends. HIGHLY recommended!

- By Mark H on

Great fun!

We went horseback riding and did the 6 zip lines....wonderful experience! Chad! Adam and Shawn were great tour guides and took great care of us. We would highly recommend this ranch for your outdoor adventures

We loved Jayell Ranch. Everyone at the ranch was very friendly and great to be around. We liked the fact that you could go to one place and do it all; horseback riding, atvs, and zip lining. My wife and I had a great time and the best part is that they have people positioned all around taking great pics which provides the memories of a lifetime. The location was great because it's a quick drive from Pigeon Forge. We did a lot during our weekend get a way but Jayell Ranch gave us the best moments. Definately coming back with the kiddies. Thanks to the whole staff at Jayell!!

Best value & scenery

Jayell Ranch is down to earth and you cannot find a better value for what you get. We did horseback riding and 6 ziplines and both were awesome. Get of hustle and bustle of attractions in town for a once in a lifetime experience!

Glad our "maybe" happened!

At first I was not sure of the ATV ride because of the fantastic price. My Dad and I really enjoyed ourselves and were both glad that we did the ride. Upon first glance we said "maybe we'll go". Glad we did & we will be back!

Lots of fun!

My family really had a good time and will do this again, when we go back to the Smokey Mountains. We felt very safe on the zip lines and on the horses. The staff is very safety oriented and knowledgable. If you go please, tip your guides.

I absolutely LOVED my experience at Jayell. My fiance' and I have never been ziplining and it was a BLAST! The horse back riding trail was beautiful and my horse 'Rosie' was a sweet as could be. We will be back in December!!! :D

Can't wait to come back!

Our family was there in July-all the way from Michigan. The whole experience was wonderful! Our daughter, Madelyn, loved the horse back ride the most. Our guide for that was awesome. He gave us a lot of history of he ranch. Then we did the zip lines! Needless to say-that was the biggest rush of our life. Even my hubby who doesn't like heights is ready to do it again. Our guides for that were the best. Now I have a coworker and her family coming down to experience it. Thanks for the awesome experience! Tami, Jason, & Madelyn Kitchell, Buchanan, Michigan

Awesome!

I had a great time at Jayell Ranch riding and ziplining. It was a blast! Josh and Brandon were great guides. They had a lot of patience with my mom who wasn't to sure she wanted to do the zipline. She ended up loving it and wants to do it again. Thank you both for an excellent time, lots of laughs, and wonderful memories. We definitly plan of coming back.

Best Riding in Sevierville

I have been to both the Five Oaks Riding Stables and Jayell Ranch. I can recommend Jayell over Five Oaks for a number of reasons. A few of the most notable are that at Jayell you get a real horseback ride and not a horseback walk. At Five oaks the horses all walk a dirt trail that a car could drive on and if one horse stops for any reason all the other horses stop behind. The reason it takes a full hour at Five Oaks is the pace is so slow and the guide keeps it that way. At Jayell your Guide rides a much better pace, but not so fast as to leave you if you are inexperienced. Jayell horses follow or pass or do as you want them. The horses will gallop or trot depending on your riding ability. The trails at Jayell are REAL horse trails not a road. There are hills, dips, water crossings etc. Last big thing I noticed was at Jayell the horses are treated better and get along better. Well worth the trip.

Great Experience !!

We did the combo, horseback riding and ziplining both. The crew were great and funny, making both adventures "an adventure" !! Our son and his friend loved it so much they went back the next 3 days for the ziplining. It's one of the best deals in town !!

Awesome

We had a blast at Jayell ranch. We rode horses and zip lined all in the same day. The guides and crew were great even with the little ones. Highly recommended

Extraordinary, Fun Experience

I have come many times to Jayell Ranch, both with family and with large groups of friends, and each visit brings new memories. The ziplines are a blast, and the hour-long horseback rides are always thrilling, rain or shine. I recommend this Smoky Mountain Adventure Attraction to anyone of any age!
