Zip line rides in Western North Carolina 

   Are you on the adventurous side, and interested in seeing the beautiful forests of Western North Carolina from a different perspective? Then a forest canopy zip line ride may be for you. This unique experience takes limited energy to participate in, and is not designed to scare but rather offers a gentle, self-controlled gliding experience. In 2009, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours became the first zip line facility in the mountains, and offers rides during the summer season. Their rides take you through multiple ecosystems in the Nantahala Gorge area. Navitat Canopy Adventures, located in the Asheville area, consistently get rave reviews for the design and function of their ziplines, as well as their concern for the environment.
