FOXFIRE MOUNTAIN ADVENTURES: MORE THAN JUST A ZIP LINE IN THE SMOKIES!



Six years ago the Postlewaite Farm was a cattle ranch. Now Marc, Marion and their family have carved a first-class attraction out of the Smoky Mountain hills and valleys near Sevierville, TN.

Today, Foxfire Mountain Adventures is the home to a world-class Scenic Canopy Zip line, a Bear Crawler ATV adventure, The Bridge To Prosperity, America's longest swinging bridges, a 12-element Aerial Adventure Course, and miles of hiking trails. They are also partnered with USA Raft to provide you with a Big Pigeon River rafting trip. They have come a long way from the cow pasture.
The zip line offers four course options. There is a beginner course with 7 world-class lines and two sky bridges. The Ridge Runner High Mountain Adventure offers five long and high lines and a Free-Fall Plunge for experienced zippers. The Aerial Adventure Course tests your agility on multiple tree-to-tree obstacles and two creek-crossing zip lines. And there is a single 600-foot long High-Tower Zipline.

 The newest edition to Foxfire Mountain Adventure is the 600-foot High-Tower Zip. You can race to the top of the 60-foot climbing wall or challenge yourself with the 12-element Aerial Adventure Course.

But if you are not the adventurous type, Foxfire Mountain is a great place to sit and relax, maybe play a little Cornhole, and listen to music on the weekends. They have food, drinks, great souvenirs a a few friendly dogs. 
And oh yes, you might even see a cow or two!
