5 Ziplines That Prove Fall Is Better Flying Through The Treetops
Admiring the autumn foliage from the ground is lovely, but the best way to experience fall colors is in the treetops. The view from above is the way to go. Get your adrenaline fix among brilliant reds, yellows and oranges on these zip lines.
1. Berkshire East Canopy Tours, Massachusetts
You’ll be 200 feet in the air, sailing over valleys for almost a half mile on the Berkshire East Valley Jump Tour. The final zips reach speeds of almost 50 miles per hour, so the foliage might turn into more of a beautiful blur.
2. French Broad Adventures, North Carolina
Less than a half an hour from Asheville, French Broad Adventures have ten zip lines with panoramic Blue Ridge Mountain views. Even better, you can hang out in the course’s treehouse to get acclimated to the heights.
3. ArborTrek Canopy Adventures, Vermont
Take your pick of Tarzan or Jane, but you will be leaping and climbing all over the forest on ArborTrek’s Canopy Adventures’ tour. Between the rappelling, rope bridges and stunning natural sights, you might even let out some Tarzan-worthy yells.
