TreeTops Zip Line Canopy Tour

Book your world-class zip line canopy tour through the old-growth Hemlock forests of the New River Gorge, West Virginia.


After last year's storm damage, we are now back up to 10 zip lines, 5 sky bridges a couple short hikes and a rappel. The new line from Rock Launch is even longer than its predecessor and the corridor is wider allowing for a more open and thrilling zip across Mill Creek. The ninth line is now even faster. All the sky bridges have also been rebuilt and they. Are. Awesome.

All in all, our unique combination of ziplines, cable sky bridges, and stationary tree platforms are an adrenaline-charged way to view the local flora and fauna from areas that are otherwise inaccessible.

And as always, TreeTops is open year-round and is especially magical in the snow. For the higher, faster ride, try our Gravity Zip Lines Trip, which is open April through November.

About our Conservation Fee: Part of your TreeTops admission will help treat, preserve, maintain and protect this small section of Hemlock forest along Mill Creek from the invasive Wooly Adelgid, a small but voracious insect capable of killing these majestic old trees.
