Asheville Tree Tops Adventure Park

Asheville Treetops Adventure Park is a new Asheville Attraction comprised of 60 unique climbing, flying, walking, jumping, swinging, and rappelling challenges anchored to over 30 towering trees and poles tucked into a wooded park just minutes from downtown Asheville. Asheville Treetops Adventure Park has five different adventure trails that allow Park Guests the choice to challenge only the obstacles they feel comfortable with. While you explore the park you will move at your own pace and tackle challenges as an individual, instead of in a group.  Think of it as ski slopes in the trees and a true "Jungle Gym" for all ages, strengths, and adventure levels.

In Asheville, outdoor activities of all kinds are a major attraction. We are proud to have created an outdoor adventure that is as unique as the city it lives in. Our challenges include a flying kayak and snowboard, swingin hula hoops, and many more unique elements that make this a "Truly Asheville Adventure".

This is made possible by new technology called "smart belays" that, when used properly, are designed to assure Park Guests are attached to safety systems at all times and can not detach from the system until they have completed the aerial trail and are back on the ground. Guests can explore freely knowing the safety system monitors their attachments and is designed to not allow accidental unclipping from the safety points. It is an active adventure that incorporates physical fitness and personal accomplishment.

  • Purple Level Treetop Adventure TrailThis trail includes 12 elements ranging in height from ground level to 8 feet off the ground. Elements include beam walks, cargo net, a tunnel, plank bridges, cable bridges, and a zip line finish. The purple trail is designed for 4-6 year olds wanting to "warm up" to the idea of climbing on our unique bridges and structures before challenging the Blue and Green trails. It is considered a "junior trail" and only utilizes the SafeRoller system our 4-6 year old Guests use throughout their experience. Adults/parents can walk alongside the trail to encourage, support, and assist their young adventure explorers. Typical use will be combined with use of the Blue and Green trails during a standard adventure park experience. It is included in the regular entry fee of $47/person.

    One hour access Birthday parties are also available on the Purple Trail for 4-8 year olds as long as part of the group is 4-6 years old. A party of 10 is $190 and can be arranged through Sarah Dickson by emailing groups@adventurecenterofasheville.com
