Zip lines are a great adventure, as you soar through the air in a harness hanging below a cable. In Minnesota, enjoy an aerial north woods view along with thrill of the zip.
Along the Gunflint Trail in the northeast tip of the state, take an exhilarating trip on the Towering Pines Canopy Tour. Test yourself at the Character Challenge Course near Park Rapids, which also offers a ropes course. Or take on the Timber Flyer zip line at the Spirit Mountain recreation area in Duluth. Also at Spirit Mountain, the Timber Twister alpine coaster is an exciting six-minute, downhill thrill ride.
Beyond the north woods, the state's newest zip line course, Kerfoot Canopy Tours, is north of Henderson in southern Minnesota. Or head to Sand Creek Adventures just southwest of Minneapolis in Jordan.
