This family of 5 with 3 boys (ages 8,10 and 13) absolutely loved our trip today with Mr. Bark and his beautiful horses. Definitely worth the trip from Gatlinburg. He is a wonderful guide for us as we prefer adventures off the beaten path. Then boys were beginners but felt very confident after the lesson on how to ride and... More

The owner was very nice. The views were fabulous - they alone were woth the price. The horses were very well behaved. The trail was challenging only because they had a LOT of rain the night before - but the owner told us that ahead of time & it kinda added to the excitment of the ride. Would definetly do... More

We were only in town for a few days and Goodlow was great about getting us a booking last minute. We had a great ride and will definitely return if we are in the area. Both of my kids (10 & 12) had a great time on the horses!

The owner is very nice and accommodating. The horses are well taken care. It was my seven year olds first time on a horse and it was a great experience for her. The trail up the mountain is pretty. Would definitely go back with the whole family.

My family and I stopped in for our first horseback ride. I love being outdoors and with animals so this was right up my alley. The other three...not such outdoorsy people. They were really going for my sake. However, after the peaceful and beautiful ride with Mr. Bark, everyone agreed that it was a fantastic experience. Mr. Bark was exactly... More

My son and I have been return customers of End of the Trail for many years - at least five or six years now. On visiting Cherokee, we saw Owner Goodlow Bark's sign, called, and have been riding each year since then, sometimes twice in one year during our vacations. Summer is a nice time to ride on this scenic,... More

Mr. Goodlow we can't wait to come back. The family enjoyed the couple of hours with you and the horses and had the best ride up the mountain. Thank you and we will be back in a few months for the Fall ride. You made everybody smile that day, your the best! Wish you much success and see you soon!... More

If you are looking for a great guide and a beautiful mountain horseback ride, look no further. My husband and I have not been horseback riding in many years; however, Mr. Goodlow Bark was very patient with us. We stopped by for a late horseback ride on a recent Monday afternoon, although it was just my husband and myself, Goodlow... More

not a fancy place but we had a great time - I would go here again! we had a group of 6 people from 6-60 years old. The trail was fun but not too challenging for our less experienced riders.
