Biking Pigeon Forge

While driving around the home of Dollywood can be maddening, especially in a large rig, we discovered that bicycle travel in Pigeon Forge, TN is delightful, once you find the right places to go. Specifically, we were able to find Patriot Park, a small city park dedicated to the brave men and women who served in the military, and encircled by a fun paved path. The park is adjacent to the picturesque old mill area. The mill dates from 1830 and still turns, although the area is now home to shops and upscale eating places, including one that featured outdoor dining and delicious southern dishes. A few blocks further on is the 4-mile long Greenway trail, a paved hiking and biking path that runs alongside picturesque Little Pigeon Creek, with its assortment of delightful waterfowl.

We rode to lunch one day, found the trail, then returned the following morning to ride a little further. As you can see, it is well worth a repeat visit, and makes out list of the top bicycle trails along our journeys.

And yes, before anyone asks, Ellen did wear a helmet.
