We have combined the alpine adventure courses of Europe with the rain forest canopy tours of Central America to create Highlands Aerial Park. Located at an elevation 3,400 feet high atop High Holly Mountain, with long-range views of mile-high Blue Ridge Mountain ranges of Georgia and North Carolina. 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.
