I was worried I would have a hard time finding somewhere I could take my 3 year old along on a trail ride. I have extensive horse experience, a 10 year that has taken a few lessons, the 3 year old who has only been on pony rides, and a husband that has never ridden as an adult. We all... More

I was a little nervous about the unguided horseback ride, but the horses know the trail by heart so you can just sit back and relax. The trail goes up the mountain to a breath taking panoramic of the adjacent mountains. The ride takes about 45 mins and it's about 60% shaded so it's not too hot. You don't need... More

This place is soooo awesome! The horses are sweet, the people are kind, and the sights are beautiful. The view from the top of the mountain will take your breath away! This adventure is a must do if in Townsend, TN, and I am so happy that my husband and I have this memory to share! Our honeymoon wouldn't have... More

Well trained horses lead you on an unassisted journey up and down trails in the mountains. The horses know the way, no guide needed. The kids loved this activity and the horses were gentle and trained well. Very scenic on the mountain trails and lasted over an hour. Great opportunity for photos!

Absolutely beautiful ride with breathtaking views! Our party of seven enjoyed every minute of it. We had lots of fun riding with our family unguided. My oldest daughter has lots of riding experience and trains horses back home, but the rest of us were pretty much newbies. It was funny how it seemed that the horse's personalities matched each of...

My wife, 17 year old daughter, 16 year old daughter, and I took an unguided trail ride today. Everyone enjoyed it very much. We've ridden on vacations before, but this was the first time without a guide. We loved it! Beautiful view at the top of the trail.

My wife and I are novice with horses but that did stop us!! We got on the horses and let them do their thing!! We also did the zip lines (this was our 1st zip line experience), and it was so much fun!! The zipline guys were great young men!! Thanks Will

This was my family's first time ever zip lining. I have an 8 year old that absolutely loved it. I also have a 16, 14, and 11 year old - all boys. My wife and I were at first somewhat hesitant given the dangers involved. However, given that the entire staff was extremely professional and very kind, we felt very... More

My wife and I decided to opt for the horseback riding and zip line combo. The staff was extremely professional and considerate, especially considering the behavior of an irate customer while we were checking in. Chester handled the trail like a pro, and though my wife's horse needed some encouragement to get going, we both made it safely through the... More
