from CLIMB Works Smoky Mountains
CLIMB Works is Gatlinburg's premier family adventure destination featuring two world-class zipline tours – our brand new Mountaintop Zipline tour and our top-rated Treetop Zipline tour – as well as Gatlinburg’s only true mountain biking. Nestled right across the street from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, you can explore one of the most beautiful places on earth in three unique and exciting ways.

Soar high above the mountaintop on our NEW dual-line Mountaintop Zipline Tour – you’ll experience higher vantage points and longer lines than ever before. Take in epic 360° panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains from each platform and learn about the rich history of the Smokies. Along the tour, you will zip side-by-side on five dual zip lines, walk across four aerial bridges, rappel off one of our platforms, and enjoy a fun ATV adventure to the top of the mountain.

Zip higher and ride longer than ever before on our five dual lines that allow you to enjoy the experience right next to friends or family. Our platforms stand high above the treetops to offer panoramic mountain views you won’t find anywhere else.

Along the 2-hour tour, you’ll traverse high above the ground on four aerial bridges and end your adventure by rappelling from the final platform. But don’t worry, we send you down at a steady controlled speed!

Start the tour off with an ATV ride (6 passengers) up the mountainside where you’ll gain 400 vertical feet over a half mile.

"Excellent time!"

I love zipping and wanted to take my boyfriend during our trip to the Great Smokies. He doesn't care for heights or roller coasters, but assured me he was willing to try. This course was excellent for a first timer and someone who's zipped before. The guides were amazing and entertaining as well. The views were gorgeous. We did the Mountaintop Tour so we could zip side by side, which was wonderful. At the start my boyfriend wasn't sure if he liked it or not, but after a couple zips he was having fun and told me after he really enjoyed himself. Safety is a top concern, there's no hand braking, and the whole experience couldn't have been better. Definitely recommend!

We had an absolute incredible time at Climbworks!! The scenery is unrivaled. Although the winds were a bit high for our adventure, we still completed our ziplining experience! Great all around staff, really personable, and energetic. Albeit the real feel was 28 degrees, you wouldn’t have known by the laughter and smiled on our faces. If you’re in the area be sure to check them out! It will be a recurring trip for us.

We had an amazing time. The guides Steele, Austin and Taylor were AMAZING. We had a group of 5 all first time riders, including a 7y that weighed 50lbs. She rode with steele. The guides we funny, patient and knowledgeable. Yes there are Zip lines in the area for less money but trust me you get what you pay for. The safety and views surpass any other there Zipline in the area.
