Zip Through – and Above – the Trees for a Different View of the Forest

Here in Western North Carolina, you may enjoy the scenic beauty through your car window or from the seat of your mountain bike, or from your raft or kayak …or from above on a zip line. Part eco-tourism, part adventure tour, zip lines offer an opportunity to soar through – and above – a forest with a unique perspective of the land below you.
