Only 45 minutes, northwest, from Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson airport but a Million Miles Away lies a pristine hidden Gorge. Secluded in Carroll County, the Snake Creek Gorge (and home to Historic Banning Mills Conservancy) boasts a pristine eco system- unusual at best!
Historic Banning Mills Conservancy sits on 300 preserved acres with another 2000 preserved acres surrounding it. The goal of the conservancy was and is to preserve the unique eco system of the gorge as well as its significant historic contributions to Georgia history.
Historic Banning Mills conservancy is supported by donations but is also self-supporting through educational and eco adventure opportunities.
With two current Guinness Book of World Records under its belt (the largest zipline canopy course and the tallest free standing climbing wall), visitors will be amazed at the varied and numerous opportunities to be experienced.
The Bridges of Banning Mills and over 15 miles of hiking trails:
The conservancy has several suspension bridges over the gorge which are some of the longest in the USA. Trails course near and by the Snake Creek, along ridges and of course over the very cool bridges.
Live Bird of Prey Shows: Come meet one of the very few flighted Bald Eagles in the USA, Miss Liberty. Our educational live shows are a must for the family.
Zip Line canopy tours and Aerial Adventure Parks: Historic Banning Mills has the Guinness World record for the largest zipline canopy tour in the world. Situated in the Snake Creek Gorge, the tours have breath taking views through old growth forests, the Gorge and Creek. So don’t be ODD (Outdoor Deficit Disorder)!
