Enjoy the view of mountains and downtown Asheville skyline before zipping down a 1200-foot line
Asheville Zipline Canopy Adventures is just one mile from the heart of downtown! Ride ten zip lines, walk across three sky bridges and enjoy great views of downtown Asheville and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains from the course, especially from atop the 54-foot Jinga Tower and high in 150-year old majestic white oaks. Two zip lines on the full course are double "side by side" zip lines. The longest is more than 1200-feet long! With a design of progressively increasing heights and lengths of the zip lines, the course allows "flyers" the opportunity to build confidence before experiencing the big heights or longer lines. Also located here is the Asheville Treetops Adventure Park.
While in flight, you reach heights of more than 70 feet and speeds of up to 35 or 40 miles per hour. Two "Canopy Rangers" escort each tour of up to 10 guests and will spend time on the 2.5-hour tour sharing the history of the area and natural features of the course. Numerous tours run daily and are expected to run year-round (weather permitting). For added comfort, there are numerous exit points along the course. It's fun for all fitness levels and no experience is needed.
