Amongst the wooded hills of Tennessee, zip lines, rope courses, thrill rides, and a suspension bridge have popped up at the Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park. Aside from being a great way to immerse yourself in the nature of the Great Smoky Mountains, the various activities at the park allow for adrenaline addicts to experience a rush. At over 475 feet above the ground, the Goliath is the tallest group of zip lines in the Smokies and one of the tallest in the country. There’s a slightly smaller zip line tour that zips over canopies and near waterfalls that is also quite scenic.
If it’s climbing you’re after, the 60 foot climbing wall as well as the rope course through the trees are open seasonally. You can also free-fall from the top of the climbing wall, or enjoy a calmer walk on the park’s hiking trails. Lastly, the 8-wheeled ATVs of the park take visitors on an adventure through the surrounds, across rivers and through highly forested areas. Guides are on hand to ensure the safety of guests.
Family owned and operated, the adventure park is part of a former cattle farm. It’s reached and is about a 30 minute drive from Gatlinburg and 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge. It’s open daily from 9am-5pm. Adventure are individually priced and start at $20.
