Warmer days and blue skies are back and now is the perfect time to plan a fantastic family weekend getaway at Bigfoot Adventure in Tracy City.
Bigfoot opens its zip lines for the season on Friday at Baggenstoss Farms, which spans more than 500 acres atop the Cumberland Plateau.
Bigfoot Adventure, owned by Andy Baggenstoss, offers the perfect outdoor day trip just 26.4 miles from downtown Winchester.
In addition to zip lines, the establishment includes an RV park and campground with endless possibilities for making new outdoor memories on their beautiful walking trails, Frisbee golf course, fishing ponds and bluff views.
There is even a treehouse rental available, known as one of the top treehouse rentals in Tennessee.
For hunting enthusiasts, Baggenstoss Farms offers quail, chukar and pheasant hunting outside the property during hunting season.
They will soon open up their 5-stand, a type of shotgun sport shooting similar to sporting clays, trap and skeet featuring five stations and 6-18 strategically placed clay target throwers. Shooters shoot in turn at various combinations of clay birds.
The zip lines
There are eight exciting zip lines that take about an hour and a half to two hours from start to finish.
