The falls occurs at the intersection of Carver’s Creek and McPherson Creek creating a waterfall that is over 150 feet wide and two stories tall.

Carver’s Falls is a virtually untouched 72 acre area of forest located in the Sandhills of North Carolina. The area is named after the waterfall nestled in the heart of the property. For centuries, Carver’s Falls has been closed to the public and few even knew of its existence. We now are proud to share this natural wonder and pristine forest with ZipQuest Waterfall & Treetop Advenure patrons.


Carver’s Falls is named for Samuel Carver who received it along with 640 acres from King George II of England in 1735. There is little known about the use of Carver’s Falls, however a Mill House that was used to mill grain was erected on the property.

The mill was powered by the waters flowing through a canal diverted from Carver’s Creek. The Old Mill House still stands today and can be seen from several zipline runs.

The ZipQuest Story

For many years our family has held one of Fayetteville, North Carolina's natural treasures - Carver's Falls. In 2009, we decided that it was time to share this extraordinary place with the public, so we decided to build a thrilling zip line tour, and make it one of the best in the nation!

We searched the country for the most qualified ziplines contractor, and found a renowned company in Michigan. Distance was no object. We brought them to North Carolina to construct one of the most impressive zip line courses in the nation.

The end result of our efforts is impressive - the ZipQuest zip lines course spans acres of pristine North Carolina forest. Some ziplines are long and designed to allow you to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings. Other ziplines are short and fast, giving the thrill of flying through the trees! You will climb floating staircases into the canopy and perch on platforms anchored to centuries-old trees. You will stroll across a pair of suspension bridges spanning the Sandhills' only major waterfall. You will have the time of your life!

We are proud of our zipline story, and we’re thrilled to be able to share this exciting Fayetteville, NC attraction with visitors from across the Carolinas and the United States!
