A Great Way To See The National Park

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park has more than a half-million forested acres and 900 miles of trails, all waiting for you to explore. Yet most of the Park is only accessible by foot. ...or by hoof.

Several stables offer guided horse rides on the Cherokee Reservation, into the National Park, or along trails in the Nantahala National Forest. Rides are generally one to four hours, and some outfitters offer overnight camping trips by horseback.

Cherokee horseback riding in the Smoky Mountains - a different way to enjoy the beautiful scenery of North Carolina.

If you have your own horse, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers many trails for your use. For more information call the Park headquarters at 865-436-1231.

And for information about horse trails in the Nantahala National Forest, call 828-479-6431.
