Horseback Riding

A Relaxing Way to Take in the Smokies

Mount up for a good time in Bryson City, all on horseback. Our North Carolina destination features many tours and routes to show you the scenic beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and surrounding areas on horse. Our horseback riding guides and riding stables have multiple options for guided trail riding on their horses.

If you wish to ride your own horse in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, please obtain a copy of the park's trail map. This map indicates the 550 miles of trails on which you may ride horses and explains the park's rules and regulations concerning horse riding in the backcountry. It also provides information about backcountry camping, and permit requirements. To obtain an official trail map, stop at any park visitor center or call (865) 436-0120. The cost of the map is $1.
