Vacationed in Gatlinburg beginning of November. Jackson Mtn. Homes referred us to Jayell Ranch. So pleased that they did. We rode the zip lines (all 6) and horses. Our zipline guides Hunter and Adam were hilarious. They were all about safety, but kept the jokes rolling. We never laughed so hard. "do not touch the cable"! The horseback riding was great for Beginners, as the horses are familiar with the trails. Our kids felt very comfortable and had a ball. Definitely recommend this place. Its very close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We will be back next time we are in town. --- (our nicknames) Peanut, Xtra large head, "Have you been drinking?" and fireman!!!!

We did the Zipline/Horseback combo and had a great time! It said 2.5 hrs but we were actually there almost 4 hrs so better not be in a hurry. The horses were very tamed and trained. Easy for our kids to steer and ride. Trail was very pretty. Wish our guide Chuck would have stopped so we all could take some pictures, but it was very cold. Also wish they had better amenities like restrooms instead of portapotties. The zip lines were fun. They are very beginner lines. We took our parents who were 67 and they loved it. Our kids loved it as well. The guides Adam and Chris were very friendly but talkative. There was some wait because it seemed Adam and Chris were the only Zipline guides on duty. They were also very talkative which is another reason it took longer than expected. That's why I say worth every penny because for 4 hours you cannot beat that price.

Traveled to Gatlinburg TN, for thanksgiving with my husband and sister. Stumbled upon Jayell ranch as an option for zip lining, And horseback riding, and what an AWESOME place to stumble across! Not only do the offer great value for the best zip lines in Sevierville / Gatlinburg area, but the staff there is amazing. Susan our trail guide saddled us up with our horses, ( Socks, Handsome, and Ebony) and set off on a beautiful tour of the area, including views of North Carolina. Susan was so personable, and made us all feel at ease with our horses , and the area.
After horseback riding through the hills we completed the six line zip line course with some hilarious guides, Adam and Chris. We had such a blast with this pair, laughing and just having a great time. The zip lines are definitely a highlight for the ranch. They boast the longest and fastest lines in the area, and they are not lying. Adam and Chris are not only a blast but you know they take pride in their lines and ranch, there at Jayell.
Overall a wonderful place to take your family or just you and your hunny! We will definitely return when we come back to Tennessee!

We brought our children (two boys 9 & 7) and two girls (5 & 2) plus grandparents for the horseback ride. We had a great time- my kids loved it. Then we stayed so the boys and their grandfather could enjoy the zip line. I highly recommend the place.

Me and a friend decided to be adventureous, I had never been Ziplining and she had never been horseback riding or Zipling. So we chose Jayell Ranch, the gave us an experience of a lifetime. They made my day. We started out wth our horseback ride guided by Shawn, my horses name was Handsome, the ride lasted over an hour. Was very beautiful across the land and seeing the mountains. Thanks Shawn!!! Then came the Zipling, I was a little nervous at first, but our guides Adam and Susan were awesome wth us. They explained everything well and were very nice people to meet and talk to. I totally had a blast doin this. I even decided to b a little more adventurous and do some flips while Ziplining. Thank you very much Susan and Adam!!!! I will deffinately be back again for all this fun and would recommend for everyone to stop and see them at Jayell Ranch, and it is also very affordable.
