About Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour
Zip through 83 acres of Southern Illinois’ Shawnee National Forest.
A canopy tour is an exciting way to experience the flora, fauna, geology and history of the outdoors by safely traversing an established route of ziplines and
aerial bridges between platforms built in the trees. A canopy tour’s purposeful utilization of the natural terrain coupled with an intentional low environmental
impact delivers an adrenaline-filled adventure and educational experience!
SBCT will provide an eco-friendly, easily accessible, exciting and educational new way to expose people of all ages and experience levels to the beauty of the Southern Illinois outdoors.
Description of the Course:
What an awesome combination- some of the most gorgeous terrain in the U.S. teamed up with Geronimo Construction, a premier builder of world class zip lines and canopy tours. Geronimo Construction has carved an adrenaline filled ecological experience out of 83 acres of private land, surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest. Unlike most, Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour is a 100% tree based “true” canopy tour. No man-made towers or cement will be found on this course. SBCT consists of 8 zip lines, three aerial bridges and two short ground hikes. You will cross a valley over a bouldered creek four times, the last on an 1100 foot zip approaching 40 miles per hour. The course ends when you walk over a 180 foot aerial bridge back to the forest floor to head home and plan your next trip to this awe-inspiring piece of nature.
