It was fun to explore. The nature trail was perfect for my really little kids. Grab the brochure at the beginning and take it on the nature trail. You'll have to wear a baby because the trail won't accommodate a stroller.

We stumbled upon this hike when the kids were small. Since then it has become my all time favorite hike when in Gatlinburg. It is not very steep nor very long perfect for little kids. I love the little self guide it talks about Noah's life, the plants that grew around there, what he did, how they survived on the... More

The Bud Ogle cabin is a well-preserved piece of history. A trail nearby leads into the woods and across a small stream. The trail can sometimes be hard to see, but it is a good way to get away and enjoy the peace and quiet that these earlier residents had all the time.

We rented the cabin for an hour and a half for $50. We had a funky victorian/steampunk wedding. It was absolutely amazing! Beautiful setting, very peaceful, and truly historic and romantic! We were married on the back porch and it was perfect! I would recommend going and seeing it, not only bc its beautiful, but you can really hear the... More

Great cabin/barn off the road to the Roaring Fork Motor Trail; this cabin gives a sense of the hard life farmers endured in this region in the 19th century.

The buildings are well preserved. Nothing is in them, but they are very photogenic. Only a short walk is needed from the parking lot to get to the buildings.

Short, peaceful and beautiful hike, mostly along a creek. Very easy and worth the hike. You just have to be careful of the rocks and tree roots. That's really the only downside to it.

Loved the original homestead. Neat historical buildings. A hiking trail fairly easy but you need to be able to navigate uneven ground. Water crosses the trail in several spots.

This was our first stop entering into the park. We took our dog with us and she had a really good time. It was nice to read the pamphlet and learn something new along the way. Definitely hard to imagine seeing the landscape the way it was before to how it is now.
