The latest news affecting transportation around the Great Smoky Mountain National Park

In response to the newly implemented Great Smoky Mountains National Park parking pass and the elimination of roadside parking at popular trailheads, Smoky Rides is offering convenient daily round trip shuttles to the Alum Cave and Rainbow Falls/Bull Head trailheads.

As we all learn and adapt to ongoing changes that the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is implementing in regards to parking passes, elimination of roadside parking and more, we hope to all work together to adapt and create affordably convenient support for all adventurer travelers in the Smoky Mountains!

Starting March 20th, 2023, Smoky Rides (smoky mountain guides) will be operating a daily National Park shuttle.
