Ziplines High Country NC Mountains Comparison

Ziplining in the High Country NC Mountains is one of the best ways to catch a view without much effort. With three ziplines to choose from, there is something for everyone.  We have many visitors throughout the year call or drop by the High Country Visitor Center to talk about how the ziplines differ, so we thought we would break down each zipline below.  We hope this ziplines comparison helps you decide which one to visit:
