You Can Walk More Than 800 Feet on This Tree-Based Bridge In Tennessee That’s Suspended Over 50 Feet in the Air
What’s that? You want to know more about the treetop skywalk? We bet you do!
Anakeesta is home to the longest tree-based bridge in North America. According to the park’s website, “Guests will walk more than 800′ along a spectacular series of skybridges suspended 50-60 feet in the air!”
While walking along the bridges, you just might see a bear on the ground below or a woodpecker nearby in a tree.
Anyone who can walk unassisted is welcome to explore the series of bridges connecting the trees. Strollers are not allowed, but babies can be worn by an adult in a baby carrier. This amazing attraction is included with general admission.
We can assume someone who suffers from a fear of heights would not want to walk on these bridges, but for the rest of us, we might finally know what it feels like to be a bird!
Rest assured that the bridges are very safe and secure. How do we know? In April, there was a storm that damaged a small portion of the bridges when three trees were knocked down; however, 11 out of the 16 bridges were not damaged at all! That shows just how strong these tree bridges are.
You can get a sneak peak at Anakeesta and the amazing tree bridges in the video below.

This outdoor wonderland might just be the breath of fresh air your family needs after months at home. We know it’s on our list of places to visit!
