- HannahJun. 11, 2022Not great
This isn’t so much a trail as it is a flat dirt path that follows the road and the river. Some of the views from the trail include graffiti on a bridge underpass and a kind of storage facility for the park rangers. It’s ok considering it’s one of only two trails in the whole national park that allows dogs and the river is nice. There are much more interesting trails that are dog friendly in surrounding state parks.
- Mary GraceMay. 28, 2022Great mini hike!!
I loved this trail! It’s pretty flat and not super long, about 4 miles round trip. It was great for my 5 year old pup and she loved it. Park at the Sugarlands visitors center!!
- KIMBERLY AFeb. 5, 2022Great Trail
Very easy great views. Some parts of the trail you have to walk on the road.
- JessicaJul. 25, 2021Beautiful trail
great trail. lots of dogs and people. mostly shaded the whole way and along the water
- JesseMay. 5, 2021Pretty good
One of the very few trails you can bring your dogs on. The woods part of the hike was nice, river runs through, some spots people would let their dogs in the water. We enjoyed our time on the trail, my only small complaint is the first quarter of the “hike” is walking along side the road and at the time we went there were cars having to try to go around us and felt congested and keeping ourselves and the dogs off the road as much as possible but narrow.
- LindsayApr. 28, 2021Wonderful dog friendly trail!
The Gatlinburg Trail is very dog friendly. My dog enjoyed laying in the water too cool off once we were done with our hike, which was quite entertaining.
- JacobFeb. 12, 2021The Gatlinburg Trail
The trail was very easy to hike and close to town. It offers some beautiful views, and it has several easy accessible places to stop on the rivers edge. Our girls loved stopping to play in the water and drink before continuing on the hike. The only downfall is that it’s close to the road in places, but it’s definitely worth a visit!
- NicholeOct. 11, 2020Perfect Walk!
Noel and Tucker enjoyed this beautiful walk along and in the river. It’s an easy walk and you will see lots of other furry friends.
- MavieSep. 22, 2020Paws Up!
Fun, easy walk, enjoyed seeing lots of other doggos. Mom found lots of places to snap my picture and I really enjoyed all the fun places to explore, so many smells 🐾
- SandiFeb. 9, 2020River!
What a great place! I didn’t have time to fully explore this nugget of beauty but I will be back. I asked someone how far it went back
- RachelFeb. 4, 2020Beautiful Trail
The Gatlinburg trail may have been shorter than we were use to. But it still is a nice trail, and very beautiful. Overall a safe and enjoy walk, only down part is how close it is to the road for a little bit. It would also be nice if there were more dog friendly trails nearby.
- MorganDec. 27, 2019Great Trail
Great, easy trail in the heart of gatlinburg. We just wish there were more pet friendly trails in the area!
- LauraNov. 12, 2019Wonderful Time!
Great trail with all kinds of things for a dog to explore. Lots of other visitors with their pets on leashes.
- RachaelOct. 18, 2019So Dog Friendly!
Super super dog friendly! Couldn’t even count how many dogs we saw while walking to trail. Very close to the main strip of Gatlinburg and very close to a road, so I did not worry at all about bears. It is just far enough away from the road but also runs along a river. Super beautiful and overall a great trail!
- AmandaOct. 10, 2019Great Easy Walk
The trail was very nice and my dog love playing in the edge of the water. Lots of dogs on the trail.
- JennAug. 12, 2019Great hiking trail
This trail was great for my 9.5month pup who loves long walks. My mom has a very small dog that needed to be carried some of the way (the gravel was a little rough on his paw pads). The trail was great! It even had some water access areas for the pups to play and cool off. This was a big hit!
- MarhiaJul. 21, 2019Great trail!
Bane & Sidney loved this trail! It was very easy for Bane (he's a bit older), wasn't too busy, and was a nice break away from the city. Our babes loved getting in the water... It was refreshing & fun! Sidney has never been hiking before, much less away from GA, so it was her 1st hike ever - I can honestly say it was a good 1st hike for her & she's pumped for more!
- DustinnicoleJul. 10, 2019great Location
This trail was perfect for our family. The scenery was beautiful and it had access to the creek for our husky to play in the water to cool off which was a God send because it was hot and didn't want her getting over heated
- MelissaJul. 7, 2019Tyson loved the hike
Very nice easy trail. Tyson loves the creek. There were other dogs along the trail. The only drawback was we couldn’t take him to the falls that were close.
- BrandyMay. 9, 2019Gatlinburg Trail Was Great
Linking up with Gatlinburg trail is also cataract falls trail. Guide told us no one cares if you take your dogs there, which we did. Gatlinburg trail has spots for great views and where the dogs can get into the water to cool off and have a little fun
- ShellyMar. 20, 2019Easy hike
One of the only trails in the national park that allows dogs. It's a very easy hike, but is pretty and runs along the river for most of the way. We ran into a lot of other pups
