There aren't any places to enjoy ziplining within Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but thanks to Smoky Mountain Ziplines, you can enjoy the high-speed fun of this popular outdoor activity just a few miles from the park. And our setting delivers plenty of scenic beauty and tranquility of its own.
But the concept of ziplining near a national park isn't unique to the Smokies. In fact, there's one zipline operator that's set up near Yosemite National Park in Northern California. The attraction offers six ziplines, multiple sky bridges and rappelling. The zipline rides offer views of the nearby Sierra National Forest and much of the wildlife within.
The tours, which began late last year, are offered year 'round, by reservation only. Tours include moonlight and customized rides. The ziplines range from 250 feet long to 1,000 feet and, like Smoky Mountain Ziplines, reach speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour.
Fortunately for those of you in the Smokies, our attraction offers 16 ziplines on our canopy tours, with lines that are longer than 1,000 feet. Our prices are also lower than those of the Yosemite attraction, which means we offer a lot of value. So when you're ready to ride a zipline, Pigeon Forge is where you'll find us at Smoky Mountain Ziplines, located near Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
