Zip Lining in the Appalachians
More Area Info
First time zip liners might find this little rig a little hard to steer. Our response? Don’t! Many newbie zip liners take off backwards, fly backwards, and land backwards. Or sideways. You WILL, however – “get the hang of it”. (We couldn’t resist!)
Zip line tours begin with guides distributing harnesses and helmets that look like rock-climbing gear and delivering very stern safety lectures. After the preliminaries, guides typically take a group to the first zip line and one of our team goes first, attaching a harness to the heavy-duty overhead steel cable and sailing along it to the next platform. This is done for two reasons: one, to demonstrate how it’s done, and two, so that we can prepare to assist you at the far end of the line as everyone else comes in for a landing.
The main point here is that we have your back, your front and every other side of you as we want this to be an exciting adventure for you, your family and/or group…and we want you to feel safe.
Here at Hawksnest Zip Lines we offer the longest North Carolina Zip Lines and the best zip line canopy tour in the state of North Carolina. Hawksnest Zip Line in Banner Elk, western North Carolina offers 4500’ elevations and we are adding up to EIGHT more lines during the summer of 2011. Currently we have 10 zip lines that create a 1.5 miles of course with some lines zipping you from 30 to 180’ off the ground at speeds from 25-30 mph! Our cables range from 300’ to 1800’ in length and that creates a LOT of squeals from fans! Experience the biggest and best – with the most spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
