Description

Challenge yourself by swinging and climbing through a ropes course in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. Offering 4 skill levels from easiest to most difficult, these courses are designed to push you both physically and mentally. Take on the ropes while enjoying aerial views of the Pigeon River.

The rope course is built high in the trees from pressure-treated utility poles, solidly constructed with safety and fun in mind. You're first fitted with a full-body harness and attached to an overhead belay cable with ropes and carabineers. This way if you lose your footing the harness and cable catch and dangle you before you get hurt. After you're clear on the safety, the adventure begins.

There are 3 rope courses per class level. Each level becomes incrementally more difficult, from the easiest, class I, to the most intense, class IV. Along the course there are balance beams, climbing nets, and rope bridges to traverse. At any point you can stop if you need a break.

Fans and advocates of rope course say that they meet a number of educational, developmental, and recreational goals, including physical fitness, personal achievement, and confrontation of fear. Challenge your body and mind while taking in the breathtaking scenery, including views of the Pigeon River.
