We may be just on the brink of winter, but autumn is still having a last hurrah this week thanks to a forecast of unseasonably warm days. Looks like highs are going to be in the upper 50s to mid-60s throughout the week with rain-free days, for the most part.
That means that whether you're visiting Pigeon Forge, Sevierville or Gatlinburg, zip line fun is still in store for the whole family at Smoky Mountain Ziplines in Pigeon Forge. Just make sure that before you visit, you check the latest weather conditions so that you can dress appropriately. We generally recommend wearing long pants anyway, so it's mainly a matter of how many upper-body layers you'll need to wear to keep warm.
You won't have to worry about working up too much of a sweat, because we provide land transportation from our outpost to the first leg of our 14-line canopy tour, and along the way, there's minimal walking from one line to the next. The longest trek by foot is only 50 yards or so, and you'll even have a chance to rest up for a minute if you need.
Also don't forget that when you're zipping along on some of the longer lines – in some cases as fast as 40 miles per hour – you'll have a wind-chill factor of sorts going on, so be sure that you don't under dress for the occasion.
