Introducing one of the newest family-friendly thrills in the Carolinas: Mountain Cat Off Road Adventures! The creative geniuses behind Sky Valley Zip Tours joined forces with Outrider USA, the only company in the nation that builds Coyote EAVs – 4WD fully electric adventure vehicles. 

Custom-made in nearby Fletcher, NC, Coyote EAVs are built for all kinds of riders. New to off-roading? The guided Mountain Cat Adventure starts with an orientation session where you and your group can get fitted with helmets and safety glasses, then practice driving the EAV to familiarize yourself with how it handles. It won’t be long until you’re hitting the trails!

Get ready for a bumpy ride!


Keep your eyes peeled for birds, plant life, and captivating landscapes as you start in the valley, traverse the rocky river, cross bridges, and climb to the top of the mountains. EAVs are quieter than other off-roading vehicles and are just as capable of taking on the most challenging terrain.

Don’t leave Sky Valley Zipline Tours without trying the canopy zipline adventure or the Whistle Pig Adventure Park (like a Mountain Cat but for younger thrill-seekers). There’s a reason why Sky Valley Zipline Tours holds the competitive position as the #1 outdoor adventure in Blowing Rock, according to Tripadvisor! You can count on the personable, attentive staff to set you up for success and turn any Mountain Cat apprehension into excitement!
