We drove up to the Roaring Fork Nature Drive and saw the sign for the Noah Bud Ogle cabin. It's a large two room cabin situated in a beautiful glen. Two photographers were out shooting pics on tripods at the time. I can see why they chose this location to build a cabin. So beautiful!

I had a Great Aunt who had a Great Aunt, who passed by one day in the Covered Wagon Travel Era. Her wagon was so full with all her personal belongings, that She felt the need to leave some if it behind. So, she left some of Her Quilting with us, and we still have Those Quilts. This Old Cabin...

Noah Bud Ogle built one of the amazing historical treasures still visible in the Great Smoky Mountains , running water. To get there take the self guided short nature trail from the house. This trail is rated as easy but being 60 years old and a avid hiker I would still put this as a moderate trail not for any... More

The cabins are in good repair and the signs nearby tell you the history of the area. It was a fun stop for 20 minutes of entertainment. Unfortunately, the history had been somewhat degraded over time as many of the repairs have been done with modern materials.

The Noah "Bud" Ogle cabin is a piece of Smoky Mountain history just off the road. There's ample parking, and there are tour booklets available (50 cents). The nature trail begins at the cabin, and winds through the forest past the family tub mill, by rock fences, and back to the barn and ends the loop at the cabin. It's... More

We never go to Gatlinburg without visiting the Bud Ogle Cabin! I love the peacefulness of the entire little farm, feels like home to me! Take time to walk around, soak in the history of it!!

Being history-lovers, my husband and I really enjoyed this short, relatively easy hike. Not only was it a pleasant, quiet, and beautiful walk through the woods, they have markers along the way that correspond with information in the booklet. The history was just fascinating!

This little sliver of the park is just up the hill from the space needle. The cabin is tranquil. There is very little traffic here. It leads in to Roaring Creek motor trail which is as long as the loop on Cades Cove and much more tranquil with less traffic. You can reach a trailhead going to Le Conte Lodge... More

We only stopped to see the cabin and was impressed with the workmanship considering the tools they had back in the day. Very wide and think board tightly wedged together at the corners. Center fireplace with duel fireplaces. Larger windows than other cabins and a livestock barn a few yards up the hill. They know how to use the stream... More
