“Tandem ZIP!” Did you know that Canopy Ridge Farm is one of the few ziplines that allow children to ride tandem?? Due to our unique course design, we can allow children ages 4+ who would otherwise be too small to zipline. It’s also a great solution for kids who may be scared and feel more comfortable going with someone else. If you have any questions about what makes our park so safe and how we can welcome guests so young on adult-size ziplines, give us a call and we’d be happy to share more! 🤩 828-625-4500 CanopyRidgeFarm.com ⛰😄 (Occasionally we can accommodate children younger than 4, dependent on their size and ability to safely fit into the gear. Please call to inquire) 3 weeks ago by @canopyridgefarm

Stepping out of my comfort zone this morning and pushing myself to try harder climbs. Higher (for me) grade slab is super intimidating, and this route had the added challenge of having to pull over a bulge. Excited and proud that I climbed Men in Granite (5.8), even on top rope with a fall at the crux. But that's how you make progress. And next time I'll finish that climb on lead! #climbing #rockclimbing #slabclimbing #littlebearwallow #hickorynutgorge #flashfoxy #heyflashfoxy #forceofnature #sheadventures #outdoorwomen #8bplus 1 month ago by @twoonthetrail

Got to paint outside on this very hot day at Hickory Nut Gorge with a great group of painters. We were recreating the scene of Chimney Rock, done in the late 1800's by Harry Fenn for Picturesque America. A new modern version of this book will be created, with the original views done by contemporary artists of today. Check out the work of Preserving a Picturesque America (PAPA). 1 month ago by @christine_enochs

***Throwback Thursday*** In 1946, plans were drawn up for an elevator to transport guests from the parking lot to the top of the Chimney. Carved out of the solid rock cliff, a 198-foot tunnel led into the mountain to the 258-foot elevator shaft. This massive construction project took eight tons of dynamite and 18 months to complete. The elevator was officially opened to the public in 1949. It has been re-constructed and serviced over the years since, but it is still fully operational and allows guests to get up near the top of the Chimney, about 26 stories, in just 32 seconds! #throwbackthursday #oldphoto #chimneyrocknc #chimneyrockstatepark #elevator #oldconstruction #hickorynutgorge 1 month ago by @chimneyrocknc

Black Bears (Ursus americanus) live all around us. This video shows a deep woods, Black Bear watering station.☹️ During their active season the bears will bite into the water line that runs from the live spring supplying water to our cabin so they can get a drink. I guess it saves them a trip to the stream.😒 Regular maintenance of these lines is a part of life in the mountains. . . . #blacksmithing #springwater #waterfromthemountains #blackbear #ursusamericanus #mountainlife #hickorynutgorge #handyman #maintenanceman #cabinlife #faerie #maker 1 month ago by @macdonald_forge
American Poke Weed: Phytolacca americana . These things are GINORMOUS this season...6+ feet and on it's way up to the sky. I tried 😕 to capture a bit of its "Jack and the Beanstalk" quality. Note: Pokeweed is toxic to humans if NOT prepared at the proper time (young shoots) and in the proper way. . . . #blacksmithing #pokeweed #pokeberry #pokesallet #nativespecies #wildflowers #wildlifefood #plantdyes #fiberart #hickorynutgorge #jackandthebeanstalk #foraging #faerie #maker 1 month ago by @macdonald_forge

Next Order of Business: Finish the Damn Rhododendron-Laurel Banister!! . As a precaution to a spreading Party Rock Wildfire in 2016, we cleared lots of Mountain Laurel & Rhododendron away from the house. Reusing it now as railing. . . . #blacksmithing #stairrailing #mountainlaurel #rhododendron #adaptivereuse #partyrockfire #rusticdecor #cabindecor #mountainlife #jackofalltrades #hickorynutgorge #renaissanceman #faerie #diy #maker 1 month ago by @macdonald_forge

Spotted at Canopy Ridge Farm, a Giant Leopard Moth! 🦋🦋🦋 The Giant Leopard Moth, or “Eyed Tiger Moth” (Hypercompe Scribonia) can be seen in various parts of North America, from Ontario to Panama! With a 3in wingspan and iridescent blue spots, these are one of the coolest species we’ve found here!
