If you are looking for the perfect intersection of adrenaline-pumping adventure and breathtaking Smoky Mountain scenery, look no further. The Legacy Mountain Ziplines are ideally situated on 400+ scenic acres just outside of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The mountainous ziplining tour features seven incredible ziplines, three rope bridges, and panoramic views of the surrounding Smoky Mountains.
The seven ziplines range in length from 450 feet to over 3,400 feet! You and your family are sure to enjoy flying 400’ above the treetops at speeds of over 40 miles per hour on 4.5+ miles of ziplines. The canopy tour, which takes 2.5 to 3 hours, offers you incredible views of Mount LeConte and The Pinnacle.
Legacy Mountain Ziplines are one of two canopy tours in the Smoky Mountains region that utilizes a double-cable system. The redundant, two-line system make it nearly impossible for a rider to become separated from the zipline and adds an extra layer of safety that the majority of canopy tours in the area do not have. Each of the cables, which are so long a helicopter was used to install them, are made of solid steel capable of supporting an automobile.
Although they kept the mood light and fun, we noticed that the Legacy Mountain Zipline guides were VERY cautious and safety conscious at all times. Each of the guides has completed a 40-hour zipline safety certification course and is ACCT certified. The guides followed and carefully enforced all of the rules to ensure that we stayed safe at all times.
