The cabin is not large, but thoughts of spending winter inside must include visits and hobbies! The wooden walls, floors and roof will prevent the wind from blowing through. Heat is provided for all in the large center room.

This was a nice stop in the park. It was great to see a piece of history up close and personal and it was great to see buildings is yesteryear.

This is easy walk to get to this cabin. It is located right before the roaring fork motor trail and you can turn around and head back to town without going on the motor trail once you are done. Very simple rustic old cabin that is a piece of history.

You have to stop here on the Roaring Fork Motor Trail. It's a beautiful original cabin and barn by the river. Very short walk from the parking area and you can see it from the road. Definitely stop here for pictures.

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
