through the trees
The only University owned and operated zip-line canopy tour!
We offer regularly scheduled zip-line canopy tours throughout the weekend, as well as Sunset Tours on Thursday and Friday evenings, as weather and the season allows.
The Adventure WV canopy tour is comprised of 4 ziplines, an aerial bridge, and aerial ladder and a rappel station to exit the course. Each zip or leg of the course ranges in length from the 201’ starting zip, to the 980’ zip at the conclusion of the course. Participants will rappel 45’ from the final platform to the ground. After exiting the course, participants will hike from the base of the final tree back to the equipment shed on an interpretive nature trail (approximately 10 mins on a moderate trail).
Throughout the canopy tour experience, participants will learn about the University Research Forest. The canopy tour guides will provide information about the forest, what it is used for, how it’s managed and what kinds of plants and animals call it home. The canopy tour provides a unique perspective on the forest as well as the individual trees that support the canopy tour itself.
