Interesting but not worth a lot of time. Empty cabin. Low doors for very short people. Very rocky walking areas. No history to speak of. Large cabin for that day and age. Large covered porch . Large shared fireplace. Interesting back covered porch. A ot of graffiti written on walls. No park personnel there.

Nice tucked away afternoon hike and historical site to visit. Cheap entertainment ( purchase brochure). The brochure or/ and trail need a little more details/markers about the nature trail and path to take and the places mentioned on the pamphlet.

There is a parking lot to go visit the cabin and a small easy hike right behind it. There appeared to be families with kids doing the hikes as well. There were also maps available at the beginning.

Great chance to explore the days gone by in this historic settlers cabin. Great visual history teaching moment for children and adults alike. Not to mention the scenery is beautiful.

Thought it was interesting and worth the look. Interesting to see how people lived in the past. Buts it's really not something I'd spend a ton of time doing. I certainly wouldn't spend more than 30 minutes here. I wouldn't live here either! No a/c, no large screen HDTV with surround sound, no microwave or walk in shower.

We took our five and seven-year-old grandsons on the 3/4 mile nature hike behind the cabin and barn. They loved it and were intrigued by the old house site of the "weaner cabin." Little streams and the winding path through the wooded farm were a delight. We would definitely do it again. The fifty-cent trail guide taught all of us... More

Great place to walk through to learn a little of Gatlinburg's history. We also visited the little store and bought one of the old fashioned brooms for decoration in our home.

There is a short, easy path through the woods behind Ogle's cabin, which is on the Roaring Fork Auto tour. It is worth doing it if you have the time. Two warnings though - there are streams that you need to cross on stepping stones so wear the proper footwear because you might get wet. And, also, there is tons... More
