Hocking Hills Zipline Canopy Tour

Hocking Hills Zipline Canopy Tour

Hocking Hills is home to many exciting outdoor adventures, but nothing compares to the thrill of our Zipline Canopy Tour!

Fast, fun, and exhilarating, this 3 hour spectacular adventure offers thrill seekers of all ages the unique opportunity to zip through the treetops on a network of cables and adventure skybridges suspended high above the forest floor, overlooking a cave, rock cliffs, the Hocking River, and other nature flora.
Upon arrival, their guides will give you a detailed safety and equipment orientation before you are fitted with your personal gear for the tour. You will also have the opportunity to actually “zip” on a low training cable to practice the techniques that you will be using on the tour.

The adventure then begins! They transport you along a 1.5 mile scenic nature trail to the beginning of the course where the Mighty Oak awaits your arrival. You will complete 10 ziplines, traverse 5 adventure skybridges and rappel back to ground level at the finish line.

While waiting between each zip you will enjoy amazing views from the observation platforms. Your guides will point out interesting highlights of the area, including native vegetation, animals, as well as local history.
For thrill-seekers and nature lovers alike, it’s the perfect adventure for families, couples seeking to escape the fast-paced city, or adults looking for something new. Designed for guests who are in reasonably good health, our zipline tour is sure to thrill first-time zippers as well as the most experienced zipline enthusiasts.
