An exhilarating zip line experience on a stunning piece of forested mountain property just north of Asheville. The course has one mile of suspended cable and features ten exhilarating zip lines (including one soaring 200 feet above the forest floor and one that is 1100 feet long), artfully-crafted platforms that nest seamlessly in large native trees, two rappelling experiences, two suspended sky bridges that span forest sections teeming with flora and fauna, and three short hikes. Guests will enjoy a thrilling ride while learning about local culture, history, the natural environment, and perhaps more about themselves.

Two professional canopy rangers will accompany smaller groups of up to eight guests. Rangers participate in ongoing extensive and rigorous training by certified industry professionals, and are certified in First Aid, CPR, and AED use.

Requirements: All guests must be in moderate to good physical condition, between 90-250 pounds, 10 years old and over, able to walk one mile, able to reach over their heads for zip line speed control and braking, have the strength to pull their weight along the cable, and also sign a Participation Agreement Form and release of liability. Closed-toe shoes are required (such as tennis shoes or hiking boots). Pants or long shorts are suggested, and short shorts are not recommended. Cameras are allowed and should have a strap so that it can be attached to your harness or it should be able to be zipped into a secure pocket. Backpacks are not permitted on the tour. All necessary equipment will be provided including helmets, gloves, full-body harnesses, plus state-of-the-art trolleys and tether lines. Before going out in the forest canopy, each guest will receive thorough participant training and a practice session on a demonstration zip line close to the ground. Warning: this activity has extremely limited availability, it will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis, and will run rain or shine.
