Set your spirit free! “Soar like an eagle” above the treetops while enjoying an incredible “bird’s eye” of the mountains and valleys of North Georgia below. A zip line ride is the perfect way to appreciate the famous fall foliage. A zip-line, commonly known as a canopy tour, flying fox, aerial runway or aerial rope slide consists of a stainless steel pulley attached to a steel cable. The rider is propelled by gravity from the top or launch point to the bottom of the incline. Zip Line canopy tours are a newly popular form of extreme outdoor adventure. Enthusiasts claim that some of the fastest, longest and most scenic lines in the world are right here in North Georgia.Credit: Morgue File
