Ziplining is one of the most thrilling ways to experience East Tennessee’s beautiful scenery!

If someone in your group is uncertain about heights, your guides will do everything in their power to help them relax and have fun. Absolutely no prior experience is needed to enjoy one of the park’s zipline adventures.
2. Horseback Riding
Horseback riding is another one of the best outdoor activities in Sevierville TN. At Five Oaks Riding Stables, which is also located in the 70-acre Adventure Park complex, you can take a beautiful trail ride through the forest. Along the way, you’ll admire stunning views of Mount LeConte, a mountain stream, and, if you’re lucky, some of the area’s signature wildlife.

Participants wear a harness throughout the course, so there is no risk of accidentally falling and injuring yourself.
Tree Tops is home to an excellent Junior Ropes Course, which is intended for children ages 8 – 11, and an awesome Adult Ropes Course, which is for guests who are aged 12 and up. All guests complete a safety training class while still on the ground before they begin the ropes course.
