Just 30 Minutes Away From Downtown Morgantown! In support of its educational and developmental mission at West Virginia University, Adventure WV has recently collaborated with the WVU Division of Forestry & Natural Resources to create a canopy tour facility. Located just off the Cooper's Rock exit, the WVU Zip Canopy Tour is believed to be the first university-owned and operated canopy tour facility in the United States. The purpose and mission of the WVU Zip Canopy tour is to ensure a fun, safe and accessible environment where people can both learn and recreate. Individuals who participate on tour will experience the following: 1. 6 tree based platforms (up to 40 feet in height) 2. 4 zip lines (longest zip 850 feet at approximately 30 mph) 3. 1 sky bridge 4. 1 tandem person rappel 5. Interpretive information about the University Forest at each platform Tours typically take 2 hours and are guided by professional staff members. Interpretive talks are also facilitated throughout each tour. Participants are given the opportunity to learn about the University Forest all while zipping among the trees. Guests are encouraged to ask questions, be themselves and have fun! The WVU Zip Canopy Tour is open to both the WVU community and general public. Please be sure to review our guidelines before purchasing your spot.

What an adventure! We booked a private tour (for 4) and had a great time. Our guides, Mike and Tyler who are both WVU students, were very patient with my trepidation, especially on the aerial bridge and the rappel down. They were kind enough to...More
