We had a great morning ride with Goodlow, his good natured horses & dog. This was the first time my three girls, 6, 8 & 13, rode and the trail was no problem for them. The scenery was beautiful on the trail and the view at the top was spectacular. The kids wanted to do it again as soon as... More

The owner is a good man horses are in nice shape. Also only stable in area that will let children ride on same horse with parent. There was nothing negative to be had and price is right. Got a well mannered bluetick hound on the ranch as well. Thankyou to Mr. Goodlow Bark from the Cummins family

brought a group of girls and adults to End of Trail. Mr Bark is always kind and courteous. The girls love this trail and all its views on the top of mountain. Great pictures!

My 3 daughters and I (they are 15, 14, and 10) went horseback riding and we all had a wonderful time. The horses are obviously well cared for which is very important to me. It appears to be a family run operation which is a plus in my mind since the horses seem to have a nice home. Goodlow is... More

We had a family trip and wanted to take our children horseback riding and found End of The Trail. Goodlow was very helpful and friendly. The horses were very peaceful and did most of the work. Any beginner would be able to ride the trail with just a little effort. The view from the "End of the Trail" atop the... More

Four Adults and Four Teenagers - Goodlow Bark has eight well behaved horses. Goodlow saddled up all eight horses and helped each eight of us on and off. His dog followed all of us up and down the trail. The End of The Trail had a spectacular view of the Great Cherokee Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains. Our teenagers... More

My group and I had a very enjoyable experience with End of the Trail, between us we had little to no horseback riding experience and the trail ride was great. The trail is at times steep and a little rugged but the horses are well-behaved and know what they are doing, they follow the leader and do all the work... More

We are a family of 4 with 2 daughters ages 4 and 1...over the years we have tried to find a stable that would let us double with no luck. I thankfully came across their website this year and was thrilled to see that you were able to double ride! We loved our ride, our children were on top of... More

At the top of the trail on the mountain was one of the most beautiful views of the Smokys I have ever seen; and I have spent a lot of time in the Smokys. The horses were very easy to ride. I would not recommend this trail for anyone who has never been on a horse. However, Goodlow Bark was... More

Thank you for your response, good to hear of your great experience. Fortunately, most of my customers have never ridden or have very little experience or I would have been out of business when I started. Most people leave here feeling excited and very proud of their accomplishment. It certainly is an experience you won't find anywhere. Hope to see... More
