Gatlinburg Trolley Map

If you are going to be vacationing in Gatlinburg, you might want to know about the trolley system available that covers all of Gatlinburg and even shuttles guests into the Smoky Mountain National Park Visitors Center.

For a very minor fee of 25 to 50 cents you can go nearly anywhere in Gatlinburg via the trolley. There is limited parking in Gatlinburg and a lot of ground to cover so taking the trolley to from your hotel to downtown locations is a great option to walking all day long.

And for a nominal fee you can take the trolley to some outlying areas like the Arts Community and the Smoky Mountains Visitors center.

I found a map online to help you find the routes the trolley takes. You can view the PDF trolley map here.

Be Careful Where You Park In Gatlinburg

Gatlinburg is a great place to vacation, but don’t let your vacation cost you extra by parking in the wrong place.

I’ve read about this in two places now. Gatlinburg has a very strict parking policy. This is not necessarily the law, it seems to be implemented by individual business owners that own their respective parking lots.

If you are caught parking in a lot other than the business you are patronizing you can be charged anywhere from $150 to $250 to have your wheels unlocked.

There have even been people that supposedly have had their wheels locked at the business they were patronizing as in the case of this family. Apparently security companies have sprung up employing goons to lock your car’s wheels and extort money from you.

While I can hardly believe a business serious about keeping their business open would employ such tactics it’s probably a good idea to watch out where you park.
