Kolo has 4 miles of single-track mountain bike trails that range from beginner-friendly to expert-only black diamond trails, 2 pump tracks, a multi-course jump line, skills area, jumps, berms, step-downs and Littleville bike playground for our youngest shredders.  Rentals are available. 

    Experiential Learning Programs: STEM/Wilderness Skills

    Our adventure activities pair perfectly with our outdoor environmental education programs! We have designed hands-on programs with North Carolina and South Carolina state standards and outdoor survival skills in mind,  but they can be tailored to cover your homeschool group’s goals and standards. Our program staff has decades of education and experience in experiential education with Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in the field. So we are excited to create an immersive learning experience for your students that encourages curiosity, teamwork, and fun!

    Home school discount day program options include: 

      • Zipline-polooza!  Students will experiment with how gravity, weight, friction, and other forces affect the motion of zipliners by building a small-scale model. Working in small groups, students will create their own design and then compete with other groups to see who can create the fastest zipline while keeping safety in mind. Add this to our Treetops Park or Ziplines so that students can experiment with and experience physics in action! 1-2 hours, $10/hour/student, Min grade 5th grade, NC & SC standards: NC 5.P.1, 7.P.1, 7.P.2, Psc.1.1, Phy.1.1, Phy.1.2; SC 4.S.1, 5.P.5, 6.P.3, 8.P.2, 8.P.3, H.P.2, H.P.3
      • Wilderness/Outdoor Survival Skills teach students what is essential in a survival situation.  Whether it is learning to build a primitive shelter, how to build & start a fire using primitive materials, or what items are truly essential for an outdoor outing, students will have a blast working together to “survive” in the woods! While also learning about “Leave No Trace” principles, students will practice some essential outdoor ethics. 1-2 hours, $10/hour/student, Min grade 2nd grade
      • In our Lost & Found Orienteering program, students will learn how to use a topographic map and compass, then apply those skills to our orienteering course. Students then will work in small groups to navigate themselves to victory.  So with a little teamwork, they then go home with skills they can use in real life. 1-2 hours, $10/hour/student, Min grade 5th grade

      Group Cooperative Games 

      are custom-created fun and competitive experiences designed to instill confidence, cooperation, communication, and connection between group members. We offer a program full of team challenges that focus on working together.  While completing their goal, they are engaged in high-excitement activities that require them to think outside of the box.  Packed with fun, your group will be challenged while laughing, joking, and having a ball! $10/hour/student

            Reservations are REQUIRED, please call group sales at

            This is a great place if you have never zip lined. The guys made it safe and comfortable and lots of fun. Beware the corny jokes.

            My son and I went ziplining, we did the short course. Though we were both terrified - it was extremely exhilarating! Brandon and Briggs were awesome instructors, and were also patient with me with each line as I was not able to get the courage to lift my feet to go 😳(I was too scared). Highly recommend visiting!
