This experience should not be confused with and is very different from the fully guided Canopy Tour.
Treetop adventure parks are the newest imported adventure to hit the US. Following quickly in the footsteps of zipline canopy tours which jumped to the US a short 6 to 7 years ago from Costa Rica and the Caribbean, adventure parks have gained tremendous popularity in Europe with thousands operating in Sweden, France, Belgium and Germany. There are only a handful in the US at this time and none of this scale and style in North Carolina.
Asheville Treetops Adventure Park includes 51 unique climbing, zipping, walking, jumping, swinging and rappelling challenges anchored to over 30 trees and towering poles tucked in a wooded area. The park has 4 trails to choose from including 1 easy “Green” trail, 2 intermediate trails, “Yellow” and “Orange” and 1 advanced “Red” trail. Each “Trail” includes 10 to 15 different challenges to complete the circuit.
Corporate gatherings, birthday parties and other special groups can be arranged in advance.
CLOSED TOED SHOES REQUIRED FOR ALL ASHEVILLE ADVENTURES!
NEW & OPEN for 2014!
Treetops Blue Course: Similar to the Green Course, this new feature is designed to give our younger audience a few more challenges during their visit to the park.
KidZip Park*: Families with younger and/or lighter kids are always looking for something to do together. Our KidZip Park is the answer, designed for 4-10 year olds and those too light (<70 lbs.) to zip on the full course. The KidZip park features nine lines and four climbs between eight and forty feet above the ground. (Separate activity and additional charge)
TreeQuest Park*: For group reservations only, the TreeQuest Park is a blend of rock climbing and tree climbing. It features twelve different climbing routes of various skill levels in six different trees. Perfect for birthday parties, youth groups, and other groups to come out and have a climbing area all to themselves. (Separate activity and additional charge)

Blue & Green Trail: Easier challenges 12 to 15 feet above the forest floor for first timers, younger children, and more timid adventurers.

Ages 4-9 with Adult escort.
Yellow Trail: Heights up to 30 feet above the forest floor providing several climbing challenges and increased exposure to moving elements. The Yellow trail introduces climber to the first zipline in the park: the Hand Glider Exits include a rappel and a cargo net escape. Yellow Trail- Ages 7+, 7-9 with Adult escort
Orange Trail: Similar to the Yellow Trail, the Orange Trail has fifteen elements instead of ten and includes most of our Asheville sports and fun elements such as the skyak, zip-n-slide, and pony zip. Min. age 10, Ages 10-12 with Adult escort.
Red Trail: Prepare for adventure, personal challenge, and lots of exposure with trees swaying and structures moving as you traverse the highest and most physically and mentally challenging activities in the park. At heights up to 45 feet above the forest floor you will climb numerous times as you gain elevation and reach the pinnacle of the park to face the Tarzan traverse, tree top climbing wall, firemen’s pole, dancing hula hoops, and bottomless Burma Bridge. One of our most challenging crossings, “Hole 13”, and most exhilarating, “Big Air” snowboard zip, complete the 15 element Red Trail with a rappel back to the Sweet…Solid….Stable ground.
