Zipitty-Do-Dah Through the Trees
The French Broad zip line canopy tour, recent recipient of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for Hospitality, debuted in the spring of 2013 on a mountain property adjacent to the company's rafting outpost. A tree-based course with hearty trees, gorgeous views, and fresh mountain air make this 10-line adventure a thrill! Experience 420- to 1000-foot zips and rappels, scenic hiking, and even a UTV ride! Professional guides 

Whitewater Rafting 'Round the Bend
Hold on tight, there's turbulence ahead! Just 24 miles north of Asheville, on the edge of Pisgah National Forest, the French Broad River runs wild through the steep, picturesque valleys of Madison County. Take a five- or nine-mile trip with an experienced guide and see abundant wildlife and wildflowers. You'll learn the names of the rapids, basic paddling techniques, river safety, and a little history on your unforgettable rafting experience.

Adventurous types can even do a zip line tour and a rafting trip in the same day! The zip line course is just a short UTV ride up the mountain behind the rafting outpost. Each excursion takes about two to three hours; together they make for a phenomenally fun day.

BBQ Sundae, Anyone?
When you work up an appetite at FBRZ, you're in luck: there's food trucks on-site, bringing fresh ingredients, local meats and veggies, and exceptional menu items to the parking lot. Try a BBQ sundae from Doc Brown's or a snack from The Flying Falafel Brothers. If you're brave enough to zip line and raft in the same day, you're going to need a hearty lunch! Enjoy it in the riverside covered picnic area.
