You travel up to 4200' in elevation with majestic 30 mile views out to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Truly Awesome! By the way, the wild azaleas bloom in late spring/early summer.
You can't even get these long range views on trails in the Smokey Mountains National Park. The park doesn't let vendors cut down the trees.
Safety and Training
Plan an extra 45 - 60 minutes, in addition to your trail time, for the safety and training program. You are shown how the horses have been trained, some about safety as well as horse personality. Then you are given an opportunity to try your horse out in the ring.
There is no extra charge for it.
Safety programs start at 10 am, 1 pm and 3:30 pm Summers, 11 am and 2 pm Spring and Fall, and 1 pm in the Winter.
Your rate is based on the trail and not time. The charge is per person. Trail times are approximate. It is hard to "Push Button" a horse to be exact and it depends on your group, how many pictures you take, etc.
