Adventures at Long Hollow Canopy Tours
For those who have maybe always wanted to experience the rush of zip lining through the trees at speeds up to 40mph, Long Hollow Canopy Tours is the place to do it. The top reviews on TripAdvisor mention how patient, kind, and experienced the staff is here. They love to show people the ropes! And they welcome all levels of experience and skill, and there’s an activity for everyone.
Upon arrival, for those heading out on the Canopy Tour, you’ll enjoy a UTV ride to the jumping-off point. You’ll begin with the shorter zip lines to make sure riders are getting the hang of things and move towards the last three longer zip lines. From a 140-foot-up sky bridge, you’ll head to the final leg for a 1,250-foot zip line where you can really pick up some speed. Finish the tour with a quick jump or a rappel; it’s up to you.
If you prefer to try your hand at the Challenge Course, this aerial adventure course has 32 unique elements, two zip lines, five ladders, and two tree houses. You’ll be accompanied by an experienced guide who can help you maneuver through these courses, but there are varying skill levels, from easy and medium to hard and expert.
Snug and proper footwear and sport-style clothing are ideal for all outdoor adventures. Long Hollow Canopy Tours still operates in the rain, but it’s best to call ahead before you go if we’re experiencing inclement weather of any kind. You’ll find more detailed information here.
