For this post, we have skipped over one of our towers (Homestead Tower) in an effort to highlight that the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour is not the only premiere canopy tour featured on Wolfe Creek Preserve.

Along our 1.5 hour Flying Prospector Canopy Tour, you will begin the journey traversing our famed Bridge to Nowhere, which fittingly leads to Nowhere Tower! ! It is also featured as the fifth zip line along the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour. As with much of our world-class canopy course, the idea behind this section comes from Eli’s childhood memories. As a youngster, Eli began building a make-shift bridge to cross the valleys and occasional stream that the property is noted for.  When asked where he was going, he would simply reply, “Nowhere.” However, in reality he was attempting to get to the heart of the property in an effort to escape the everyday and dream of the glorious adventures his father Isaac brought back tales from.

Today, the Bridge to Nowhere is slightly more impressive than the one young Eli originally constructed (it spans under a quarter mile and features 7 connected suspension bridges with a top height of 60 ft). As for the tower the Bridge to Nowhere eventually leads to, it seemed only right to name it Nowhere Tower,  and we are sure you will find every bit as much adventure taking off from Nowhere Tower as Eli did during his daydreams.

You can easily browse more information on the Flying Prospector Canopy Tour as well as book reservations online. Additionally, we would highly recommend that you browse our numerous other premiere zip line and canopy tour options at
