Ziplining: What to Expect

Your adventure begins by climbing a 70 ft. tower, giving you a bird’s-eye view of the Catawba River and the surrounding areas! After an initial 100-foot zip beside our pool complex, you will glide through 100 year-old oaks, poplars and river birches; traverse a skybridge; hike three short nature trails and finish with a zip through the wild oak forest at the end of the island. While waiting between each zip you will enjoy amazing views from the observation platforms. Canaan guides will point out interesting highlights of the area, including native vegetation, waterfowl and wildlife as well as local history.

Pam – First Time Zipliner

“We did the zip line today for the first time and it was A-Mazing!!! I was hesitant at the first zip and from there on out it just became more and more fun. Our guides, Jarod and Patrick were very helpful, insured our safety but were also great fun. Can’t wait to do it again! Thanks, guys!”
