The Zip Canopy Tour
The Adventure WV Zip-Line Canopy Tour is comprised of 4 zip lines, 7 tree-based platforms, an aerial bridge, and a tandem rappel station to exit the course. Each zip or leg of the course ranges in length from the 201’ starting zip, to the 750’ 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). The entire course runs throughout the northern section of Coopers Rock State Forest, otherwise known as the WVU Research Forest. Visitors are encouraged to explore the surrounding area and participate in other WVU Outdoor Education Center activities.

The Zip-Line Canopy Tour is perfect for individuals, groups, and team-building events. Reservations open up each year in the spring and continue through the summer months before closing up for winter. Private tours are available outside of normal tour schedules but must be arranged with Zip-Line staff members prior to arrival.
