This event is now opened to everyone.
All you need to do is get on the waiting list and then make your reservations at The Canyons Zip Line website. Once that is done and you let the host know you made the reservations you will be moved to the going list.

There will only be 20 spots available and they will go to those Sidetracker members that first make reservations with the Canyons Zip Line. Once you make reservation and provide confirmation the host will change you from the waiting list to going.

This is absolutely the best zip lining in the state. There are 9 zip lines, several over 130-feet in the air, many over the water where there once were deep rock quarries. There is also a long rope bridge to cross and a 60-foot rappel down a tree! The drive takes about 2 hour and 30 minutes to get to The Canyons which is outside of Ocala. We will meet at McDonald's on Chaffee Road and Interstate 10. (705 Chaffee Rd S, Jacksonville, FL 32221) and we will be leaving McDonald's promptly at 8:30am.

After signing up on the SideTrackers Meetup site, you will also have to go to ( and book a tour for yourself. Book the time for March 16, at 12:00 pm so that we can go as a group. If that time slot is booked, take the next available one. You will have to pay by credit card at the time of booking. The cost is $99.99 per person plus tax for the Full Zip/Canopy. This event will get booked up quickly, so don’t delay if you are interested but please, only register if you intend to go. The entire course will take about 3 hours. We go off in groups of 8.

We probably won’t be finished until around 4:00pm. Once you are on the course, you keep moving and there is little time to eat, so you might want to bring a powerbar or cookies to sustain yourself. This is real exercise!

We will go The Yearling in Cross Creek afterward for a bite to eat. Everyone agreed that this is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. The food is fabulous!

Please update your RSVP if your plans change and read the Important Information on The Canyons website.
