The Noah Bud Ogle Cabin is located just before the Roaring Fork Motor Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There is a small parking lot beside the cabin and some street parking as well. You can pick up a brochure about the property for .50 cents. There is also a sign that goes into less detail. The cabin... More

The Noah "Bud" Ogle cabin (NOT to be confused with the Historic Ogle Cabin on the parkway in downtown Gatlinburg) is located on Cherokee Orchard Road just before the start of the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. We had stopped to view this cabin once or twice before, but we had never done the actual hiking trail. So, we decided... More

We almost drove past the Ogle Cabin area when entering the Roaring Forks Motor Trail. I'm so glad we stopped. The 1/2 mile (3/4 mile?) hiking trail through the property was my family's favorite hike during our trip to the Smoky Mountains. Our daughters (ages 7 and 9) found the hike challenging, but not so difficult that they couldn't handle... More

The Ogle Cabin is a very brief look at the conditions families from history dealt with in this part of Appalachia. The cabin is a true survivor from those hard times, when people existed using what nature provided. Please, don't continue the sad process that some have started. Incidents of vandalism are increasing, defacing these artifacts from our nation's history.

This rustic cabin is a short walk from the parking area. The grounds and structure are well kept by the park service (kudos to those who serve with park service). The building will smile proudly for some great photography. A good opportunity to teach the young people and most of the adults around you how good we have it. And,... More

We recently took a tour to this cabin which I highly recommend to anyone. You can certainly do it on your own for free but you don't get the full history behind the cabin like you do with a guided tour. We found it to be extremely inexpensive for all that they give you on this tour, information that you... More

We stopped here on our way to roaring forks motor trail. This is a quaint walking trail and homesite. Pick up a brochure at the beginning for $.50, its very informative and gives lots of history of the cabin amd surrounding areas. We saw a bear and a deer while walking the trail. The trail is fairly easy to walk.... More

If you or your family want to take a brief step back in time, the Noah "Bud Ogle" Cabin near Gatlinburg is just the place to visit. Turn off the main drag in Gatlinburg at traffic light #8 and it is only a few miles out of town. While the parking is conveniently located near the cabin, the short trail... More

Don't expect a grand tour, or stunning views. This is just a piece of history, simply, which makes it endearing. I loved just wandering the grounds and going in the cabin to take a peak into the past. A great little spot. It is on the Roaring Forks Motor Trail, so it can be really busy, so plan for that.
