Foxfire Mountain may be most famous for its incredible canopy tours, but zip lining is just one of many activities that you can enjoy at our adventure park! If you’re looking for a thrilling ride in the foothills of the Smokies, you’ll love our Bear Crawler. This extreme 8-wheeler will take you through some of the very best ATV trails near Pigeon Forge TN. To help you make the most of your next vacation, we have put together a guide to everything you need to know about our Bear Crawler Adventure.
An Exhilarating (and Beautiful) Ride
ATV stands for all terrain vehicle, and the Bear Crawler really does go through all terrain! During your adventure, you will drive over logging trails, splash through creeks, and climb your way to the top of Foxfire Mountain. Our 150-acre nature park is full of breathtaking natural scenery that rivals anything you would see within the borders of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Touring Foxfire Mountain on the Bear Crawler is a thrilling experience that many guests have compared to being on a roller coaster. Passengers are in for a bumpy ride, but you will always feel completely safe and secure in your seat. The Bear Crawler Adventure is perfect for the dog days of summer because our ATV drives straight through plenty of water and mud. The Bear Crawler is completely amphibious, so you can prepare for a wet and wild journey.
See a Historic Iron Mine and a Stunning Waterfall
Accompanying you on your adventure (and driving the Bear Crawler!) will be one of our friendly and experienced guides. As you make your way through the beautiful ATV trails near Pigeon Forge TN, your guide will entertain you with information about the area’s plants and wildlife and stories from Foxfire Mountain’s fascinating history.
During your ATV tour, there will be several opportunities to stretch your legs and explore some of Foxfire Mountain’s amazing landmarks. One of the highlights of the tour is the historic Sweden Furnace Mine, an iron mine that operated around the mid-1800s. Visitors will be able to look down on the entrance to this old mine as they walk across a swinging rope bridge.
Another popular stop during the Bear Crawler tour is Lost Mine Falls, a gorgeous waterfall that takes its name from the Sweden Furnace iron mine. Make sure you keep your eyes in the sky when you visit the falls because you might just see zip liners enjoying our Waterfall Canopy Tour!
