The trolleys are a standard in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. It is extremely helpful as parking is limited in these areas.

It was very convenient to take the trolley into town. The drivers were very nice and friendly. We went during off season so they weren't as many trolleys running so the wait could get up to 30 minuets for one.

gatlinburg is a LOT of walking, you are going to get tired at some point, and instead of limiting how far you go, you can just walk to the end of it, and then trolley back. Parking here sucks, leave your car at the motel, walk, and use the trolley.

This was a great experience at Christmas. It takes you on a tour of the Christmas lights and gives you the history of Tennessee. Highly recommend for couples and families!!

We like to take the trolley from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg. It's a fun tradition we started several years ago.

There are several trolley routes. All start at the Ripley's Aquarium. The cost for most is $0.50. The wait time varies, but the trolley lets you avoid driving in heavy traffic and finding a parking lot.

There is NO POINT to paying $15, parking at Dollywood and riding the tram to the park when you can park at Patriot Park, pay 50¢ and ride the trolley to the park. Short trip, nice staff and clean trolleys that run every 15 minutes. Why anyone would park at Dollywood is beyond me.
