More than just a zipline ride, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours takes you through multiple ecosystems, past hemlocks, and into hardwood treetops. Take flight above the forest floor blanketed with mountain laurel, rhododendren, flame azalea, and other native plants. While in flight, watch for hawks, deer, and other wildlife; or spot the remains of a moonshine still while rangers share the cultural history of the Nantahala Gorge. We have added to the canopy tour to include platforms that have Clingman's Dome, Fontanta Lake and waterfall views. Travel out to the point for the highest platform, then on to the highest point in a tree with unbelievable views. One more zip takes you to a bridge and a short hike to the final 2 zips.
