Creating Memories Worth Repeating®
There’s a lot planned for you on your Smoky Mountains tour to Newfound Gap. Before your adrenaline-charged 4x4 off-road adventure, you'll depart in an iconic, open-air Pink® Jeep® Wrangler from our convenient Pigeon Forge, TN location. From there, Sugarlands Visitor Center is your first stop. You’ll learn the history of the towns we pass along the way.
From Sugarlands Visitor Center, you'll ascend 3,000 feet on paved roads. You’ll pass through a diverse forest made up of a mix of trees and varied scents that mimic that of the boreal forests that form a ring just south of the Arctic Circle. Discover how the Smokies got their name, stop for amazing photo opportunities and hear about local geology and history.
Guided Tour of Newfound Gap
You’ll arrive at Newfound Gap, which is nearly one mile above sea level. You’ll see part of the mighty Appalachian Trail. Rockefeller Memorial is where U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt stood to dedicate the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Sept. 2, 1940. A short nature walk brings yet more discoveries.
But Newfound Gap’s main attraction is its stunning viewpoint. It stretches as far as your imagination no matter the season. April and May bring wildflowers. The summer brings rolling and layered green hues. The fall features vibrant autumn colors. And, the winter reveals the true scale of the Great Smoky Mountains after its leaves have fallen.
The return trip from Newfound Gap includes stops for more photos. You’ll see the streams that ultimately feed the Gulf of Mexico via the mighty Mississippi River.
Thrilling 4x4 Off-Road Experience
Your tour finishes with a hand-gripping, off-roading ride through a trail on private land. Your professional tour guide has been expertly trained to give you an experience unlike any other in the Great Smoky Mountains. After your thrilling 4x4 ride, you’ll be dropped off in time for your next planned activity, but not before filling your memory—and camera—with stories and pictures to share.

We chose based on past experiences with you in Sedona. And our grandsons were looking forward to the off road part at the end which didn’t happen.
Loved the tour. We think Pink Keep is fabulous.
I signed up for the roaring forks tour but was given another one
again, the tour was great. your questions about other tours probably need to include a n/a or have you taken other tours "like this one"
Very informative, interesting, fun, and our guide was helpful and informative about the terrain and surrounding area. Good restaurant recommendations.

Fanatic! This was an amazing tour & so much fun! In my opinion it’s a must do! I have been to Pigeon Forge several times and on this tour I seen and found out things I never knew or saw before! Our Guide Pam was awesome! It was so nice to have our group together and let her drive so we all could take in the sites! Pam took us to places that we could get pictures and see the amazing beauty of the Park! The off road part at the end was so much fun, we could have keep going! Thanks Pink Jeep, will Definitely make this a must every time we visit! Pam hope to see you on our next trip! ??
Lived it very nice
Amazing breath taking
it was good, Ronnie was a pleasure to ride with. He was very accommodating and considerate. Scenery was beautiful and we appreciated Ronnie going the extra mile for us to get the best view. I hate to say the off road can't compare with our Sedona tour. But it's what you have to work with.
Our tour guide Ronnie made the tour!! Super friendly and knowledgeable about his hometown
