Anakeesta offers a unique outdoor mountain experience for all ages. Begin with a scenic ride from Downtown Gatlinburg to the summit of Anakeesta mountain on the Chondola’s open-quad chair or enclosed 6 person cabin where you will arrive at  Firefly Village, a whimsical treehouse-themed village that features quaint shopping at the Great Outdoors Trading Company, Catching Fireflies and the Adventure Outpost. Grab some delicious Southern BBQ at the Anakeesta Smokehouse or enjoy a hot chocolate, coffee, or ice cream at Pearl's Pie in the Sky. Our new mountaintop restaurant features a delicious menu, full-service bar, and outdoor seating. Cliff Top Grill & Bar is named after the majestic mountain peaks that serve as the backdrop to our dining pavilion, making it the perfect spot to watch the sunset!

From there you can stroll through the scenic Treetop Skywalk, which includes 16 hanging bridges suspended more than 50 feet in the air, soar through the trees on Gatlinburg’s fastest dual-racing zip lines, climb through the Anakeesta Treehouse Village Playground, and discover treasures at the Anakeesta Gem Mining Company. Everyone can also enjoy racing down the mountainside on the Anakeesta Rail Runner, our new single rail mountain coaster which is the only one of its kind in the United States. Follow the Memorial Forest Walk to learn about the November 2016 fire and how it impacted our ‘mountain strong’ community, discover our new Vista Gardens botanical walk that features walking trails that meander through lush gardens filled with a variety of flowers and plants, or simply sit back and enjoy the breathtaking views of Mt. LeConte and sparkling lights of Downtown Gatlinburg. 

Discover the magic that’s in the mountains.
