High up in the Smoky Mountains, between thick patches of leafy trees and evergreens, lives a herd of horses that spend their days strolling through trails without a thought for the bustle of city life below.

In addition to friendly horses and breathtaking vistas, Jayell Ranch also hosts the longest zipline in the Smokies.
Jayell Ranch is located right next to Dollywood, the world famous attraction in the Smokies. We are family owned and operated, and Safety & Customer Satisfaction is our #1 concern.

Absolute great experience. We did the zipline, horseback riding and utv. All of our guides were great and never once did we feel unsafe. This was our first time visit The Smoky Mountains. And happened to find and go to Jayell ranch because you didn't need reservations for anything. And boy were we not disappointed. We actually went back a couple days layer to do the monkey and bird encounter. Awesome experience!!
We were here last in 2016 and did the full zip course. OMG IT WAS SO EXCITING!!!!! Never thought I'd love it as much as I did!
Fast forward to 7-5-2021...We are back today and gonna zip the full course again! WE CAN NOT WAIT!! That's what I've been waiting for on this trip the most. Everything will pale in comparison.
All of your tour guides are awesome. We had Eric on the atv tour and pops on the horseback tour. My husband and daughter did the ziplines and had a blast. Thank you for a great time.
