Make the Most of Your Autumn Trip to Pigeon Forge


Are you looking for a traditional autumn getaway with beautiful leaves, hayrides and corn mazes, mountain crafts, and caramel apples? Come to Pigeon Forge, nestled by the Smoky Mountains, and ready to welcome you this fall with outings like these.

Soak Up Autumn Views

Blazing colors turn the Smokies’ forests into a riot of scarlet, gold, orange, and yellow. Set out early from your Pigeon Forge rental cabin and hit viewing spots like Albright Grove Loop Trail, an uncrowded hike through old-growth forests. Drive Newfound Gap Road for high-elevation views or climb the observation tower at Clingmans Dome.

Enjoy Appalachian Crafts

Patriot Park is a craft lover’s heaven in October. The Rotary Club Fall Crafts Festival hosts local artisans and crafters selling autumn decorations, holiday gifts, jewelry, glass art, quilts, and more. Relax in Patriot Park with a walk along the river, too.

Go On a Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt

Keep your camera ready! Friendly scarecrows arrive in Pigeon Forge each fall and are delighted to pose for selfies. Twenty humorous scarecrows hang out in front of businesses, play in parks and even wait for the Pigeon Forge Trolley. Find them all!

Get Lost in a Corn Maze

With five corn mazes, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, animals, slides, and swings, Kyker Farms welcomes families each weekend from Sept. 24 through Oct. 30. See who can escape the mazes first!

Create Your Masterpiece

Unleash your inner artist–and your inner child–at Chalkfest at The Island. Anyone can participate in this sidewalk art festival on Sunday, Oct. 9. The Island provides chalk for all, so join in!

Treat the Kids to Classic Fall Fun

Bring the family to the Wears Valley Fall Fest, Oct. 14-16. Kids can tackle an obstacle course, do crafts, bounce on inflatables, and munch seasonal goodies like caramel apples and grilled corn on the cob. Listen to country, folk, gospel, and 50s rock while visiting the craft vendors.

Nest in A Pigeon Forge Cabin

Curl up on a deck chair and relish a private view of the autumn leaves. Sip local moonshine as you relax by the living room fireplace. Play games with your honey or the kids in the game room, or make pumpkin spice muffins in the fully equipped kitchen.
