Description

from Oconoluftee Farm Smoky Mountains - Pink Jeep Tour
The Oconaluftee Farm tour of the Smoky Mountains has a little something for everyone—making the most of quality time with loved ones in the great outdoors. This tour offers a paved experience and a thrilling 4x4 off-road adventure toward the end of your Oconaluftee Farm experience.

From our Pigeon Forge location, you’ll head for North Carolina. From the start, you’ll begin to fill your senses as you ride in an iconic, open-air Pink® Jeep® Wrangler. You’ll hear of the Native American cultures, pioneers, and farmers.

Soon, the Jeep stops at Oconaluftee Farm. This outdoor museum features a collection of 19th-century buildings that include a farmhouse, barn, apple house, and blacksmith shop. Situated next to a beautiful rolling stream, the site gives you a look into how families may have lived. Have your camera ready; this picturesque location often hosts grazing wildlife.

From Oconoluftee, you’ll climb 3,000 feet on paved roads. You’ll pass through a mixed forest made up of trees and smells that mimic that of the boreal forests that form a ring just south of the Arctic Circle. You’ll discover how the Smokies got their name, stop for amazing photo opportunities and hear more of local geology and history.

You’ll arrive at Newfound Gap, which is nearly 1 mile above sea level. You’ll see part of the mighty Appalachian Trail. Rockefeller Memorial, where U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt stood to dedicate the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Sept. 2, 1940, is here.

But Newfound Gap’s main attraction is its stunning viewpoint. It stretches as far as your imagination no matter the season. April and May bring wildflowers. The summer brings rolling and layered green hues. The fall features vibrant autumn colors. And, the winter reveals the true scale of the Great Smoky Mountains after its leaves have fallen.

The return trip includes stops for more photos. You’ll see the streams that ultimately feed the Gulf of Mexico via the mighty Mississippi River.

Your tour finishes with a thrilling off-roading ride through a trail on private land. Your professional tour guide has been expertly trained to give you an experience unlike any other in the Great Smoky Mountains.

We took a trip to Bryson and on the way saw numerous awesome views but with my husband driving it was very hard for him to enjoy it. So I saw these pink jeeps and said tours on them. I looked them up and saw they did one to the Newfound Gap. So I booked the tour. Stella was our guide and she was awesome. She was very knowledgeable and her driving skills were great. She took many pics for us and it was a great ride up the mountain. My husband and kids enjoyed the tour very much. We would definitely do it again.

Decided to see the Great Smoky Mountains by taking a Pink Jeep tour. This is a great way to see the park and its beauty. We did the 3 hour Foothills tour. Kaley was our guide and made sure we were comfortable and safe. You can do 2, 3 and 4 hour tours of different aspects of the park. We got out for a bathroom break on our journey. We saw beautful waterfalls, stream and mountains. Kaley new her park well and was very friendly. I didnt care for the 4 wheeling experience but some would find it thrilling at the end of there journey{ you can opt out of this} Our tour was in the $60 dollar range but was a good experience when you dont know the history of the area or where to go. Would recommend to others visiting the area.

"Great Guide but boring trip"

I’ve been on Jeep tours in Sedona and the Grand Tetons, ( which were all off road) so was very excited about seeing the Smokey mountains on this trip from a Jeep. Our guide was friendly and made us all feel welcome. However, it soon became apparent that in the Smokey mountains, jeeps and other tours must remain on the road, that is a two lane parkway. I understand the reason behind this decision, ( to keep the ecosystem from being harmed) but I want the reader to know, that there is No Off-road exploration of the mountain. And there is very little to see from the road. NICE RIDE BUT NOT WHAT WE HOPED FOR,! The last ten minutes, the guide takes you off the road to a pink Jeep man-made trail. No sights just bumps and hills.

We had 11 in our party from ages 14 to 59. This was the highlight of our trip. Great way to get an overview of the Smoky Mountains and some history of the area too. Jordana was our guide and very caring about our comfort and answering our questions. Loved the views of the mountains. The kids said the off roading should be longer as they enjoyed that the most. I would love to go back and do the Roaring Forks trip next. Our guides were very proud of working for Pink Jeep tours and told us all great things about the company and history of Dolly Parton as well . Very informative and educational. Our kids Jeep guide seemed to be as knowledgeable as a park ranger. So we got a 2 for 1 tour experience.
