Check out the info below to discover why 4-wheeling is the perfect activity for your Gatlinburg getaway! 

What Is 4-Wheeling & Why Should Your Family Try It? 

This fun activity involves driving all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) that come in four-wheel drive. 4-wheeling is an exhilarating activity that can lead to a lifelong passion and connection with nature. 

Although there isn’t a body to a 4-wheeler, like there is with a vehicle, you’ll still be protected. Protective gear like helmets, pads, and guards are recommended. Before you hit the trails, our team will guide you through the process to ensure you’re safe every time you accelerate.  

If you don’t mind getting a little muddy and venturing to new areas, this is a perfect activity for the family. Continue reading if you want to discover the other reasons you should hop behind the wheel! 

1. Exposure to Nature 

If you and your adult kids like to explore, there’s no better activity than 4-wheeling. With a smaller vehicle, you can all reach isolated areas that aren’t accessible by car. 

Having this type of mobility will be a game-changer for your group and you’ll get the chance to take unforgettable photos. Many people use our trails to venture into the unknown, only to come back feeling more connected with themselves.  

To get a closer look at the scenery, check out our Pigeon Forge ATV Trail Gallery. These photos can help you prepare for the adventure and find inspiration. If someone in the group isn’t excited about the muddy messes, you can try to entice them with our images. 

2. It’s a Fun Activity to Relieve Stress

Did you know that more than 50% of people in the United States experience stress daily? This staggering statistic can be difficult to accept, but there’s something you can do about it for your family. 

Taking your significant other and adult kids 4-wheeling can relieve mental and physical tension. Getting into nature and focusing on an activity can be highly soothing, even in the midst of an adventure. Although you’ll be exploring the unknown, you’ll have a positive mindset from the start. 

A lot of people have fun driving 4-wheelers because it lets them take a step on the wild side. This can be satisfying, especially for those who want to break free and find a new sense of freedom. 

3. ATVs Can Be Calming 

While many people go on wild adventures with their 4-wheelers, you can appreciate the calmer side of things. ATV tours in Pigeon Forge, for example, can be relaxing and refreshing. 

Each person navigating the 4-wheeler will have complete control over the speed and direction. If you aren’t looking for an adrenaline rush, you can slow things down to take in the views. For more info about Gon Ridin’ Offroad, check out our frequently asked questions
