In most cases, the easiest way to get to our ziplines in Pigeon Forge is to take Conner Heights Road off the Parkway at the southern end of Pigeon Forge (it's the last traffic light before The Spur). Conner Heights, turns into Mill Creek Road, and you'll find our outpost just 1.5 miles from the Parkway, on the left.
However, there are days when the Parkway in Pigeon Forge is a parking lot due to car shows or major events like Dolly's Parade or Fourth of July celebrations. In those rare instances, it pays to have a shortcut. Here are a couple of back ways to Smoky Mountain Ziplines:
Start on Wears Valley Road, about a mile from traffic light #3 on the Pigeon Forge Parkway. Turn south onto Twin City Way and use a GPS or mapping device to follow a series of county roads to Little Cove Road, which eventually turns into Mill Creek Road.
If you're coming from Townsend or Wears Valley, turn off Wears Valley Road onto Valley View Road. Again, we recommend using a GPS or map app on your phone, but Valley View runs into Little Cove Road, which eventually turns into Mill Creek Road.
The bottom line is that with a good mapping tool and a little planning, you can still find us, without sitting in traffic and enjoying some rural mountain scenery along the way.
