At the moment, there are six routes on the Pigeon Forge trolley system, offering service to the area’s major attractions and even into neighboring towns like Gatlinburg. Here are the names and basic details of the six routes:
- North Parkway - This route heads around the northern section of Pigeon Forge and into the city of Sevierville. It calls at several malls and shopping areas along the way like the Tanger Outlet Center at Five Oaks and the Sevierville Wal-Mart.
- South Parkway - As the name indicates, this route goes around the southern part of the city and mostly goes along Pine Mountain Road. It visits several campgrounds in the area and passes by some key attractions like the Dixie Stampede.
- Gatlinburg Welcome Center - If you want to get to Gatlinburg, this is the line to choose. It's important to note that this trolley route is a little pricier than the others, with tickets costing 75 cents as opposed to 50. The Gatlinburg Welcome Center route runs south out of Pigeon Forge and into Gatlinburg.
- Dollywood - The Dollywood route simply and quickly takes you from the Old Mill area of Pigeon Forge across to the Dollywood theme park. It starts running half an hour before the park opens, allowing you to be at the front gates right on time to make the most of your day, and operations continue into the evening to help bring guests of the park back home.
- Dolly's Splash Country - This route, like the Dollywood route, is totally focused on heading back and forth between the Old Mill and the Dolly's Splash Country water park. It runs every 20 minutes.
- Wears Valley - Finally, the Wears Valley route runs every 40 minutes and heads north from the Old Mill district and then west to the Wears Valley area, passing by various campgrounds, stores, restaurants, and more along the way.
