As a child or an adult, you won't be able to help but feel a sense of wonder and excitement as you look up at a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges, each presenting you a different challenge of how to get to the next level and navigate through the forest. Relax -- you don't have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan! You'll get to choose from ten different color-coded trails, from 'beginner' (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced, depending on which you feel the most comfortable and confident with. Of course, you will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb, and a double-connected"always-locked-on'climbing system will keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. Feel completely safe as you explore the trails which were intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary!
