We have combined the excitement of the Upper Pigeon River raft trip with a Waterfall Zipline tour at Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park to create the an outdoor adventure your group will never forget.

The only zip line in the Smokies that actually zips over a waterfall. The Waterfall Canopy tour is a true Smoky Mountain jungle tour where you zip from tree to tree like Tarzan. Get set to experience the majesty, and mystic beauty of the Smoky Mountains as you zip across valleys and creeks for two hours on seven tree platforms. Here you will zip across mountains, over creeks and waterfalls, on to the side of rock cliffs, across valleys, and then back to the base camp. An awesome bonding experience for the entire family.


Fall Rafting

Fall rafting provides the opportunity to experience the river at a variety of water levels. The class rapids can be between a calm class 2 float to a thrilling class 4 whitewater trip. The levels change daily depending on recent rainfall and a release from the dam. You should expect to get splashed and have class 2-3 rapids and enjoy a beautiful float trip with mild whitewater, yet be prepared for class 3-4 rapids if the water releases from the dam. We are ready to have fun at any water level! We typically have trips departing 7 days a week. You can view our schedule if you go to BOOK NOW and see calendar of availability. We operate on this schedule from September 4th – October 30th. At any level we raft the Upper section it is suitable for beginners and children as young as 8 years old.
