We were a bit nervous to try out Foxfire based on some of the reviews. We're happy we didn't take the comments to heart and made the journey. We had 2 ten year olds, 2 adults, and 1 grandma in our group. This was the perfect place for our mixed group. The swinging bridge doesn't swing like other bridges; however,... More

This is a great hike for those who would like to exercise. The employees give you a map and you go out on your own for the hike. It wasn't a very long hike but the mountain is fairly deep. I took the short, wet route so i'm not sure how long the long, dry route is.

Some friends and I went to walk the bridge and it was beautiful. The property is clean and maintained and family oriented. You could hang out and play corn hole and the food at the bbq place was excellent. The bridge walk was a little pricey but it was a great low key hike

My husband and I took my 12 year old grandson zip lining. All of our safety concerns were quickly put to rest. Our guides, Ben and Chris, did a great job of educating us on what we needed to do. We all had a great time and would highly recommend it.

This is not just a bridge tour. Once you cross the bridge there are other things to do including an awesome hike, wishing bridge, and waterfalls. All in all it was a great hike and there were a lot of activities to keep the kids entertained. I would recommend adding this to your trip!!

You get to hike to a big waterfall that you can stand under, sort of, or get on top. They don't really mention it, but it's there. There's also more cool bridges on the other side.

This is a fun walk to the bridge, and you can continue hiking up the mountain and see the waterfall.

So cool on the other side. Wishes are hung on a bridge and neat rope bridge for the kids. Great to do after ziplining.

Caleb and Daniel were the best guides! We wanted to do something on this trip we have never done and I was glad we chose Foxfire Mountain to zip. Thanks guys for helping make our vacation memorable.

If your family enjoys hiking, this is the place to go...It's very close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, so it's a little extra 'something fun' to add to any vacations that you might be planning there...The kids loved it, and it didn't cost a fortune... There is so much to do here...Stop to see America's longest swinging bridge, you will... More
