We took the motor trail out of Gatlinburg and stopped to check out the Ogle log cabin. It is amazing and humbling to imagine how it would be to live in those conditions, and you get a real feel of it. Luckily, the fire missed this historic place. Very cool.

You can visit lots of farms in various parts of the Smokies but this offered a 3/4 mile nature trail that helped you envision what life was like. In that 3/4 mile trail we saw where the garden, pasture, corn field, mill and more would have been. The trail was rocky and there were lots of tree roots that you... More

Hard to imagine so many people living in such a small space. A true testament to the pioneer spirit of the people from South Carolina who built and thrived in this area.

So very thankful that this historical cabin was not damaged in the recent wildfires . The cabin location is a nice area to walk and is especially a pretty area in the spring. There are trails nearby and if you love history, this is a must see. If you travel further down the road you will enter the Roaring Fork... More

The Ogle Log Cabin is a good place to go and walk around. You can see how they lived. If you travel up past Mynatt Park to the Ogle Homestead and walk around you can follow a trail up to an old grist mill and depending on the season you might see a bear or two wandering around.

Interesting historical cabin where a family once lived, right in the heart of Gatlinburg. Most people don't even pay attention to it, but we did a historical trolley ride a couple of years ago that provided information regarding it
