This zip-line tour will have you flying across the tree tops of Mica Peak and screaming with thrills. Visitors meet the tour guides in an unexpected office complex situated below Mica Peak. At the office, the do’s and don’t’s are given and then it’s time to meet your tour guides and hop in a van to head up the peak. During the 10-minute van ride, visitors lean to the history of Mica Peak and Mica Moon Zip Tours (named after the peak and the place where moonshine was once crafted).
Once you arrive at the peak, it’s time to get your gear and helmets on and then hop in a UTV (utility task vehicle) for a hilariously fun, bumpy ride on a dirt trail, up the mountain. After some twists, turns, hills and giggles, visitors will arrive at the first zip-line.
The guides are excellent in providing detailed instructions on safety and how to zip across the trees, and each unique line brings a little something extra liking singing or dancing while you zip nearly 60 feet in the air. There are nine lines, some of which have you landing on a platform in the trees and some on the ground. The newest and longest line was added in the summer of 2017. The tour takes about two and half hours and the natural high you will feel after zipping through the sky will last all day long.
Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations required.
Adults: $96; children ages 7 to 15: $85. Cash tips are welcome for the guides.
Children 7 and older are welcome to zip. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
What to Bring
Bug spray and sunscreen is always a good idea, along with closed toed shoes. Shorts are fine to wear, but with a harness on, you may prefer to wear shorts that hit the lower thigh.
There is a free parking lot at the office complex.
