Read through this station to station narrative of our Screaming Hawk Zipline Adventure, review our Frequently Asked Questions and our Zipline Guidelines to ensure you have a fun and enjoyable adventure!

Don't let those teetering towers intimidate you too much. They don't seem so high once you're up there... or do they? Once you've reached the beginning of the course via Magic Carpet, your guides will take it a little easy on you and let you get your bearings on the practice zip. Here they will hook you into a short, ground-level zipline and explain how your gear works. Once you get the hang of zipping, it's time for the real thing.

The course begins with the Spider Web cargo net. See if you can climb up as fast as your guide. It's not as easy as it looks! The Spider Web brings you to your first aerial view of Seven Springs on Copperhead Tower and it only gets better from here.

Take a deep breath, a moment of clarity, whatever you need... and take that first step. As your feet leave the platform, you'll find yourself dangling above the ground, zooming 350 feet to your next destination. Before you know it, your feet are back on solid... wait, this 60-foot tall platform is swaying in the wind. Welcome to Flying Squirrel Perch.

Catch your breath and take in some stunning views of the Laurel Highlands as you wait for the next zip. It's time to pick up the pace and zip another 350 feet to Rattlesnake Roost. That one seemed a bit faster, didn't it?

By now, you're starting to get the hang of this ziplining thing. Time to go farther and faster. The next zip takes you 425 feet to Red Fox Landing. You may notice a rickety-looking bridge on the other side of the platform. You're taking your first look at Black Bear Bridge. Make your way across this bouncing, swaying traverse and don't look down, vertigo makes it a lot harder!

Take another deep breath. You made it! Welcome to Venom Tower, the start of your final blood-pumping zip. The lead guide looks awfully tiny from 777 feet away and you're next. Be sure to keep your eyes open as you zoom up to 50 mph across the final zip, taking in some amazing views of the mountain. Don't forget to wave to any bystanders standing below as you rush down the final lengths of the cable.

You did it! You defeated the Screaming Hawk Zipline! Wait... what's that over there? You almost forgot about Jack Rabbit Jump. Just as you're recovering from all the excitement, your guide will hook you into an auto-belay system to exit the course. Do you have it in you to just... step off that ledge? Deep breaths, deep breaths. Close your eyes. Your heart may skip a beat as you feel your feet, once again, leave the platform and you head straight for the ground. Before you know it, your toes touch that sweet, solid ground again. That wasn't so bad, was it?
