Enjoy Fall’s Beauty On A Horseback Waterfall Tour At Smokemont Riding Stables In North Carolina
Is there really any better way to enjoy a woodsy waterfall adventure in autumn than by way of horseback? The answer, in our humble opinion, is: nope! Even after you’ve already taken a scenic fall foliage road trip and enjoyed a picturesque fall hike in the mountains, the icing on the autumn cake just may be this horseback waterfall tour – under and through a canopy of blazing colors.

A few things to know before you go: all riders must be at least five years old, and kids can’t double up on a single horse (for safety reasons). The maximum weight for this tour is 240 pounds.
