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.

We had the perfect day on the Mountain top zip line, sunshine and excellent views. Corey, Steele and Tyler made our trip so awesome. They were so much fun and safe. We did a lot of research to find the right place and we’re so glad we chose this one.

Arrived early to our tour and the crew took us up since there were only four of us. Very helpful, did everything for us. Miss Steele was very sweet and personable and shared with us hiking recommendations as well as history of the area. Tyler & Ethan are the names I remember but all the guys were very nice and funny while also professional. We did 7 lines. All had great views. This was my 2nd time ziplining with ClimbWorks and I’d would recommend them to anyone visiting the area. They’re the best. 👍🏽👍🏽

"Amazing adventure"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We opted for the moutaintop zipline tour and I'm extremely happy we went with this company. Our guides were nothing short of amazing from the time we stepped foot inside. They were knowledgeable about the park and we learned alot about the surrounding areas. My cousin has a fear of heights and she was determined to do this. Let me say the patience and care that the guides showed to her was far more than we could have asked for. They helped calm her and walk her through step by step what she would experince and in the end, my cpusin completed all 5 lines!! The ziplining was a blast!! The ride up and back down the mountain in the atv's was a bonus adventure. Hopefully i make it to Hawaii to check out their sister location. #alwaysclimb

"Very high ziplines, excellent staff"

Ethan, Sam & Justin were great guides. My daughter was afraid to go because last time we did this she had to stop herself. Not so on these ziplines. The guides stop you. Not sure why other people have been saying the guides are rude. That wasn't the case for us. They were very informative and joked the whole way. We had a great time! My daughter conquered her fear of heights. The only thing I wished was different is that the Treetop tour was open. It's not open during the off-season. Definitely recommend these guys!
