Canopy Tour

Explore the woodlands along the Catawba River and portions of the Historic Tuckaseegee Ford and Trail on the USNWC’s Canopy Tour.  Participants are guided through the tree canopy traveling from platform to platform on a series of zips, sky bridges, cargo net climbs, rappels and other high adventure challenges.  The tour reaches heights in excess of 60 feet in the hardwood trees that lace a 90 foot deep canyon before working its way through a wetlands delta and proceeding along the banks of the Catawba River.
