The WVU Zipline Canopy Tour
The WVU Zipline Canopy Tour is a family friendly adventure located off the Coopers Rock exit. It is one of the best outdoor adventures in the Morgantown, Cheat Lake and Coopers Rock area.
The course itself is comprised of 4 ziplines, an aerial bridge, and aerial ladder and a rappel station to exit the course. Each zip or leg of the course ranges in length from the 201’ starting zip, to the 980’ zip at the conclusion of the course. Participants will rappel 45’ from the final platform to the ground. After exiting the course, participants will hike from the base of the final tree back to the equipment shed on an interpretive nature trail (approximately 10 mins on a moderate trail).

Throughout the canopy tour experience, participants will learn about Cooper's Rock State Forest and the University Research Forest.

The canopy tour provides a unique perspective on the forest as well as the individual trees that support the canopy tour itself.
