Zip Line Canopy Tours and Arial Park

Zip line canopy tours of Blue Ridge is just a few minute's drive from the red apple cabin. The large log lodge that the tour meets in is beautiful, and has a small shop inside where you can purchase shirts and your pictures that the guilds take of you flying through the trees. There you can find your inner thrill seeking self as you fly over the Smokey Mountain tree line and over lakes filled with trout. There you can pick from a one or two hour tour. I say go Big, we went for the 2 hour tour and were so happy we did, it included about twice as many zips. Our guilds were very well seasoned and provided comic relief for those who were nervous… I will say, bring a light coat, you are up so high, and the winds really pick up. All of our equipment was provided and a short informational demo at the start of the tour was most helpful. Our group was made up of about 12 people, young and old. There are a few flights of stairs you will have to climb, but you are after all looking out at some of the most beautiful countryside, so take your time and take it in, because once you start your zip you can reach speeds of 35 MPH and everything goes right by. The best time to fly through the trees is, dare I say, Fall!
