I highly recommend Zoar Outdoor for its zipline canopy tours. The mountain terrain is steep and beautifully wooded. The 11 ziplines are designed so that the first couple are fairly short, so beginners can get the hang (no pun intended) of the gear and technique before they move on to longer, faster runs. Our guides, Josh and Kelsie, were knowledgeable... More

I would highly recommend Zoar Outdoor/Deerfield Valley Canopy Tours, we went on our first tour yesterday, October 18th. Both my boyfriend and I were hesitant to try this, but had heard great things about it. Our guides Kyle and Morghan were great (definitely ask what tours they're doing and go with them) they put my anxiety at ease and helped... More

Zoar zip lining is in Charleston on the Mohawk trail. We arrived early so were able to take time to visit Shelbourne Falls,8 miles away -well worth a visit too. I was very nervous but the 2 guides were informative, knowledgeable and made the experience fun. There are 11 zip lines which gradually increase in length over the course but... More

I'm glad to hear that you got to experience our whole area. Shelburne Falls is a gem of a town. It's common to be nervous about zip lining, but our guides try to help you over it and most people find they really enjoy it once they get comfortable in the trees. Hope to see you again! More

Zoar's zipline course features 11 zips with 2 very long and 1 long run which really gets your adrenaline pumping. The guides are safety conscious, informative, patient and professional. There are 2 repels and one bridge walk. Awesome day with Zoar.

I'm glad you enjoyed the rappels and skybridges as well as the zip lines. The variety of elements gives you a number of different perspectives in the trees and our guides love leading people through the canopy. More
