What's The Difference? A Gatlinburg UTV Rental vs. a ATV Rental?


  • A UTV (Utility Task Vehicle) is larger than an ATV and can carry a whole family.
  • Driving is as easy as driving a car. It’s an open-air vehicle, which makes it so fun to drive.
  • These UTVs, also known as Gatlinburg side-by-side rentals, refer to the side-by-side seating for passengers.
  • At Ridge Riders, we only rent UTV vehicles. They are sturdy with more power and better suspension, and built for passengers. They are street-legal for the Gatlinburg roads and all the Smoky Mountains Trails (no off-roading allowed in the area). Our Gatlinburg UTV rentals are ideal for a day of fun with the family.


  • An ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) is a vehicle you are most familiar with and can buy at a regular dealer (like the Honda ATV sport utility). ATVs are built for off-roading are built for one rider.
  • ATVs are less sturdy and require more experience to drive and navigate. These vehicles are not suitable for most visiting tourists.
  • In Gatlinburg, ATVs are not an option, as only street-legal, on-road UTV vehicles are permitted.
  • Instead, choose from our large fleet of UTVs! We guarantee a safe, comfortable experience while driving through Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain Trails.
