About Highlands Aerial Park
We have combined the zipline alpine adventure courses of Europe with the rainforest canopy zipline tours of Central America to create Highlands Aerial Park. The cool mountain air and unique plant life create an atmosphere that cannot be duplicated and is only found in our corner of the Smoky Mountains. The lush, virgin, old-growth forest infused with peaks and knolls, whose creeks and springs carve gorges and waterfalls, creates a wondrous natural terrain ideal for this ecologically-inspired family adventure park. Fly through the trees on our World Class Canopy Tour, have a family experience of a lifetime on the Brave Indian Family Challenge and Zipline Course, experience the heart stopping thrill of the Giant Mountain Swing, race a friend to the top of the Dual 40' Tree Climb, walk miles of pristine nature trails through the temperate rainforest, featuring botanical & mythical creature scavenger hunts, see the beautiful 300' long cascade of Upper Middle Creek Falls, and traverse the

Had a great time with our tour guide Louisa on the UTV Tour and a thrilling ride on the Giant Mountain Swing! We didn’t do the zip line this trip but it also looked awesome! The walking trails are free, nicely maintained, and includes a 150 ft. suspended bridge and hidden waterfall. Louisa was a great tour guide and made our experience even more fun!

My kids and I had a great time riding the zip lines here. At 9 and 11 years old it was the perfect amount of daring and adventure.

We had a blast on the full mountaintop tour! It’s the perfect length to get your adrenaline fix. Louisa & Will were excellent guides, they were professional and knowledgeable, offering lots of safety tips and a couple fun facts too. The views are beautiful and the longer zip lines are FUN!! Definitely recommend booking the full tour instead of the half b/c the longer/higher lines come on the second half of the tour, well worth it!!
