Major Stream Bank Restoration Project Under Way

Due to this long-awaited project, Z-Z-Zip is temporarily closed until further notice. Check back for more details and  project updates!


For an unforgettable romantic getaway, Running Waters treehouse hangs 30 feet above the French Broad River.   Enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep on your queen-sized pillow-top mattress, and awake to the ripple of the ancient river below.  Private picnic area and grill.

We offer a combo paddle/zip trip in conjunction with Headwaters Outfitters. Arrive by canoe or kayak and finish your paddle after you zip.

Your zip trip takes place in the oldest mountains in the world, the Appalachians, and alongside the French Broad River, the third oldest river in the world.  Our canopy tour begins at the top of our mountain and culminates with two zips over water - one over the East Fork River and the other over the French Broad River.
