Blanche Manor Horseback Riding
Ocoee River Basin Canopy Tour
Looking for family fun near Atlanta and Chattanooga this summer? As the Southeast’s Pioneer in Ziplines since 1971, our Ocoee Zip Line Canopy Tours are perfect for the whole family! For those headed to the Ocoee River this summer, you can now experience the adventure of flying on zip lines. Located just 1.5 miles east of Wildwater Ocoee. Wildwater acquired over 14 wooded acres just outside of Ducktown that is now an extension of the Wildwater Ocoee Center. The Ocoee canopy tour is a wooded and tree based tour (no zipping over fields or parking lots!) with 9 zip line sections and three swinging sky bridges that highlight the vast history and beauty of this once barren landscape. Canopy Rangers will share both the history and the wonder of the recovery of this area from red clay back to deep green forest.
Each participant is provided with state-of-the-art equipment including helmets, full body harnesses, trolley, gloves, tether lines, with 2 canopy rangers accompanying each group. All Canopy Tour Rangers are trained to ACCT standards and all courses are built and inspected to ACCT standards to provide safety and fun!
This three-hour experience gives you over 1/2 mile of air time with
- Training and practice on easier ziplines first
- Three Sky Bridges
- 9 zip line sections alternating between trees and elevated platforms
- A Spectacular three level platform with long range views of the Big Frog Wilderness & Cherokee National Forest
All flyers are required to wear closed-toed shoes and it is suggested that you wear longer shorts or pants and a collared shirt to help prevent chafing from the harness. Harness seats will wrap around your upper thigh, shoulders and waist so shirts and pants should cover modestly. Long hair must be tied back and secured and please leave your cell phones in the car.
All flyers must be in reasonably good physical condition. Some stair climbs are required. No women who are pregnant, please come back next year! Chronic back or shoulder injuries should consult a physician. No hard or soft casts. Flyers must be able to raise their arms over head to self-regulate speed and braking. Canopy Rangers will provide safety instruction and back-up systems.
Drive time: 10 min
Ocoee Adventure Center
Ocoee River Rafting, Biking and Kayaking
The Ocoee Adventure Center is more than a rafting outpost in Ducktown, Tennessee. OAC’s staff of outdoor professionals has the focused purpose of “providing the absolute highest quality adventure experience for our guests.” This philosphy is applied to everything we do from half day rafting trips on the Ocoee River to multi day kayaking adventures in the Cherokee National Forest. The quality of our guests’ experience and their satisfaction are the first and foremost concerns on all our trips.
We offer a wide range of outdoor activities from our outpost at the eastern gateway to the Cherokee National Forest. We hope you’ll visit our cozy log cabin – sit a spell on the porch, enjoy a picnic alongside our cool mountain stream and browse in our store for a great t-shirt or souvenir to take home with you.
