You’re most likely taking a trip to the Smoky Mountains in the fall because you want to see beautiful fall scenery. Visiting SkyLand Ranch in Sevierville is one of the best ways to take in the fall foliage! SkyLand Ranch is located above the Parkway in Sevierville and offers unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape and the colorful Smoky Mountains. As you ride up The Horizon Skyride scenic chairlift, you can take in the beautiful fall colors all around you. Once you reach the top, you can walk along Legacy Lookout to see 360-degree views of the Smoky Mountains from 350 feet above the Parkway. You won’t find views like this anywhere else in Sevierville!

2. Cooler Weather

Another reason to visit SkyLand Ranch in Sevierville this fall is because it’s a great way to enjoy the cooler weather. In the fall, temperatures are much more mild and pleasant, with highs in the 60s to 70s and lows in the 30s to 50s. That means you won’t get too hot or too cold as you explore our outdoor attraction! Fall in the Smoky Mountains is also a fairly dry season, which means you won’t need to worry about avoiding rain and storms. You can enjoy the wonderfully crisp fall air by spending time outdoors at SkyLand Ranch!

3. Lots of Fun Outdoor Activities

5. Open Late

One of the reasons to visit SkyLand Ranch this fall is because of our long hours. We stay open from 10:00 A.M. until 8:00 P.M. That means you have a full day to explore all that SkyLand Ranch has to offer, even after dark. In fall, the days are shorter, which means it gets dark earlier. Nighttime activities are the most fun in the fall. You can sit around the fire pit at the top of SkyLand Ranch with your friends and family to enjoy the chilly evening air. Grab a hot chocolate or cappuccino to keep you toasty as the temperatures drop at night. After the sun goes down, you’ll be able to take in amazing views of the city lights of Sevierville and Pigeon Forge below.
