ATV Mountain Biking is probably something that you don’t normally do. Why not do it in the Smoky Mountains. You may also choose to ride the Rhino if you don’t want to ride alone. There is also something called a side by side.
There are 6,000 acres of privately owned land with endless, challenging trails spread throughout. You will ride very nice ATVs over an array of challenging and fun terrain. You will go up hills so steep an ATV can’t make it up unless it’s in 4-wheel drive. You get to ride over very rough rocky patches, through creeks, through deep puddles. The lookouts give you an unbelievable view.
There are several rides to choose from. Make sure you take the mountain View ride (1 1/2 hour – 2 overlooks) if you want to see some great views. Ask at the check in about your options. You will need to call for times. Go on a clear day. You will be stopping and taking pictures as well as riding through the wooded terrain.
You must be 16 to ride the ATVs unless you take the one hour tour (which doesn’t go to the overlooks). The ride never goes over 15-20 MPH. Most of the ride is about 10MPH. So, may not be for the more experienced driver. The guides are great and will help you with your equipment, safety, training, etc..
Don’t forget to wear closed toed shoes. A scull rag or handkerchief might be nice to put under the helmets they give you. Also wear some old clothes. Your clothes may get muddy. You may want to put your camera and cell phone in a plastic bag. There is a height requirement. Go early in the morning or you may have to wait. You may want to bring a bottle of water.
