Smoky Mountain Llama Treks - Cosby: Llama Trail Trek and Farm Visit for 2, or Farm Visit for 2 or 4 from Smoky Mountain Llama Treks (Up to 67% Off)

Humans often relax by communing with nature: hiking through mountains, paddling down rivers, and eating berries indiscriminately. Get your fill of nature with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $40 for a 90-minute Padgett Mill trail trek and farm visit for two ($120 value)
  • $10 for a farm visit for two adults ($20 value)
  • $17 for a farm visit for two adults and two children ($34 value)

During the Padgett Mill trail trek each hiker pairs with a clean, fluffy pack llama who carries backpacks or bags to take the weight off of feet. One or two guides front every 1.25-mile trek, which is rated easy-to-moderate and involves some uphill hiking before leveling off and winding through the pristine Smoky Mountain foothills.

Before or after the trek, or for an adventure all its own, visitors can participate in a farm visit, during which they can pet, feed, and read Shakespearean sonnets to the fuzzy llamas. Children younger than 3 regularly receive free admission to the farm visit.

Smoky Mountain Llama Treks

As Steve Garrett hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2008, he felt called to leave the corporate life he led near Grand Rapids, Michigan, and move to the mountains with his family. His wife, Johnna, supported his dream—so they and their children moved to Tennessee to run Smoky Mountain Llama Treks.

Their fluffy, pettable llamas don't spit, kick, or run off—rather, the gentle pack animals carry loads for hikers on treks through fields and woods. Though the llamas can't be ridden, their ability to carry food and gear makes it easier for hikers to enjoy mountain views and cartwheel down the trails. In addition to leading groups on hikes, the staff can also coordinate adventures including zipline tours through the forest canopy, rafting, and helicopter tours.

So much fun for the whole family! Dont forget to bring graham crackers to feed these beautiful animals. Llamas are the best!

Went with my friend Jessica on our vacation. It's about a 45 minute drive from gatlinburg but worth the drive for sure. We had an incredible time and Steve is a great host! Would love to go next year on our annual vacation.
