Hawksnest - The Newest Zipline in NC's High Country

Hawksnest Resort in Seven Devils, NC has always been known as a skiing destination until last year... They switched over entirely to Snow they have added the longest Zipline on the East Coast.... over 2 miles of zipping!!

At the Hawksnest Zipline, you can ride 13 different cables taking you through the trees, over creeks and even over snow tubers during the winter months. Make sure you try the SuperZip cable that is over 2500 feet in length and over 200 feet high.

The zipline course is set in the middle of some of the best views in the High Country. Zipline riding is an exciting and safe experience for the entire family; children must be 5 years old to ride. In addition to being the largest zipline course on the east coast they are a great value.

The course progresses in length and speed. Professional guides accompany each group of riders, providing advice and safety tips along the way. According to the guides, the first-timer’s tentative step off tower number one into nothingness is soon replaced with their exclamations of “whoopee.” The learning curve is quick, the guides said.
