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.

It’s a great spot but there must be a better way to do crowd control Tuesday morning we arrived at 9:30 am we were there 3 hours and did 3 quick zips and still had a 2 hour wait to horse ride it can be confusing you wait in line 4 different times if you go plan on the day

Jayell Ranch, family fun!

My kids and I did the horseback riding which was a lot of fun. Wanted to do more but very long wait time for the atv. In all we still loved it and the scenery was so pretty and our guide was great. Like I said plan for it to be an all day thing.
