Explore Shawnee Forest Country!

Safety is always number one here, so don't be afraid. This is the place to check zip lining off your bucket list! You will start off with 'flight school' before you ever get out in the canopy.

Allow 3 hours for an exciting canopy tour. The guides will educate you about the flora, fauna, geology and history of the outdoors by safely traversing an established route of ziplines and aerial bridges between platforms built in the trees. You must leave your phones and cameras behind, but staff will take photos for you, and you can rent a GoPro if you want to capture your zipping experience.

The tour includes 11 platforms high in the trees, three aerial suspension bridges, the longest stretching 180 feet, and two short ground hikes. What to add to the excitement - try one of the night time tours!

You will want to save your Frequent Zipper Card and plan to go again!

Strap in - Step off - Soar!
