I’ve been thinking about making a summertime visit to Canaan Valley after school is out, and thought the zipline at Timberline might be fun to check out.  But their webpage has nothing about the zipline, and I tried calling the resort and couldn’t find a live person to speak to…  Anyone know if the zipline is still operating?

Pretty sure Timberline has been designated a ghost town?

Check out NRocks for ziplines.  I’ve always wanted to do their Via Ferrata.

As always, lots of awesome things to do in Canaan Valley, but Timberline has closed down. The power company cut their power a few months ago for not paying the bills. From the public documents that have been released, it also seems they could be in serious  trouble for nefarious activities associated with their utitily company.

Rodney, are you looking for a day trip or something longer and what other things were you planning on doing? There are plenty of people here that can point you to trails or activities at almost any resort (and surrounding areas) in the mid atlantic as well as help with lodging/camping suggestions if you are looking for more than a day.

From my experience there is a huge variety of events/activities to do around during the summer, and generally way less crowds than the beaches or theme parks.

It looks like the last thing they pimped was a party for cinco de mayo/ the Derby.  I’m sure they will get their electrical issues figured out just in time to dissapoint you all come MLK Day when they have two trails open.

So the Timberline zipline was a failed experiment that shut down several years ago.  The towers are still there, a memory of money spent apparently, but there have been no wires or actual zipline in a while.  I guess their website still advertises it?  Sounds about right unfortunately.
