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

This is a great place to visit and get back to nature. I enjoy walking around the house and then take the nature trail back to the old mill. The trail is a bit rocky but worth the time. Enjoy and take in Mother Nature after all that is why you come to the mountains.

The Noah "Bud" Ogle cabin is a unique gem for anyone who loves Smoky Mountain history. The cabin is very well preserved and from the moment one approaches it, their mind travels back in time imagining what it must have been like to live there. The beautiful surroundings make it all the more special and on occasion a bear is... More

Very nice nostalgic homestead. Nice short 3/4 mile trail - however it says it's easy walk - it is when speaking of incline but it is very rocky. Can get in the water by the old small mill - bring towels etc.

If you like history or the days of old, this old home place is great to visit. Very interesting to show the grandkids.

Nice to be able to see the way how the early settlers of the Smokies lived during their time. Take your time and enjoy the cabin and barn and take a stroll along the trail. Not sure if we followed the trail, as our hiking book stated it was an easy hike, but back by the springhouse, we were rock... More

Stopped with our 5 year old and 2 year old before hitting the Roaring Fork motor trail. Spent a few minutes going through the cabin and then the barn before taking the three fourths of a mile nature trail that loops behind the property. The length and difficulty of this trail was just right for our little ones. It did... More

A group of us went to see this cabin and all ages enjoyed it. Maybe to the kids it was just another house, but it was still fun for them to explore. For us adults who like to imagine what it was like to live there 100 years ago it is fascinating. The house is set back in a field,... More
