Walk off those extra calories from indulging yourself in the many eateries in this area. The Pigeon Forge Riverwalk is a nicely developed. paved walking/running/biking path on the east bank of the Pigeon River.
The path begins in a residential area--Butler Street--located near the Old Mill District. It runs along the river northward through Pigeon Forge. It can be easily accessed from Teaster Lane (one block east of the Parkway) and Jake Thomas Road (traffic light #5). There is a small parking area here with a paved path to the walkway. Heading north on Teaster Lane, a large parking area where you can take one of the Pigeon Forge trolleys also provides access to the walk. People of various ages use the walk: a man on rollerblades pushes a child in a stroller with another child riding a bike alongside; an older couple walk hand-in-hand on an evening stroll; college students pound the path listening to iPods.
The walk is lit and has benches along the way to sit and enjoy the scenery and the serenity. Be sure you watch the path for duck droppings. This is part of the charm of the Great Smoky Mountains, and after all, this is "home" for the ducks.
