Our History


The Property

Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour is located on a truly unique destination. Now 26 acres it was the active farm and homestead of RJ Reynolds great-grandfather Joshua Cox (1731-1821. That’s right 90 years old). Joshua Cox was a trainer of the local Patriot Militia Men in the Revolutionary War and was instrumental in establishing freedom for North Carolina from the British. The North Carolina government put a headstone for Joshua Cox in the cemetery located on the farm that is being restored. Lots more history if you come.


Where it all began

Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour was opened in 2007 and was purchased by the new owners, Keith and Barbara Bollman in 2010.  Keith and Barbara brought with them a “family vibe” having 12 children and 26 grandchildren.  They re-designed the zipline in 2018 and today you can enjoy eleven different canopy ziplines.

A picture is worth a 1000 words*, and NO they do not all live at home. We invite you to come and be apart of our family and the adventure. Visit the mountains. We are closer than you think and more fun than you can imagine.
