While we welcome the whole family at our adventure park in West Virginia, there are some things you should keep in mind as our treetop obstacle course does have certain requirements and limits.
We’ll provide expert safety instruction and all the necessary safety gear, including helmets, gloves, and harnesses.
Stable closed-toed shoes that stay on (no flip flops or crocs), plus comfortable clothes that you can easily move around in. Skirts, dresses, and other loose-fitting clothing may get caught in our rigging and should not be worn for TimberTrek. A rain jacket is a good idea if weather dictates.
Trips will start and end at building number 8 on the Mill Creek side of campus. Our adventure park is just a short walk down the hill from the aerial check-in desk.
Each group that visits TimberTrek is given three hours to make their way through all seven obstacle courses or repeat the courses you like. This tends to be plenty of time for groups of up to 20 active, agile participants. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your trip time.
Reservations are required, and minimum group sizes may apply. Please arrive at least minutes before your trip time.
Our hours of operation vary by season, but TimberTrek trips usually begin around 8 a.m. with multiple trips going out through the day. TimberTrek will operate rain or shine unless there is lightning, high winds, or ice. In the event of a storm, TimberTrek will close temporarily and reopen once weather allows. Time spent on the ground will not count against your purchase.
You do need a degree of physical fitness to complete our courses, but it's very rare for someone to stop climbing all together because they weren't fit enough. Start easy and work your way up!
No, our courses have trails underneath that loved ones can use to follow along with participants that are climbing.
Generally, each course will take around 30 minutes to complete. This all depends on the confidence of the climber and how many people on the course are ahead of you.
We teach you everything you need to know to be safe while climbing our courses. The courses do contain some easy and some physically challenging obstacles so there is a risk for scrapes and bruises on our course.
Although you can set your own pace at TimberTrek, our guides are absolutely critical. They ensure your safety by checking all of your gear. They’ll also push you along with positive encouragement!
Our gear is designed to catch you upon falling off any of our obstacles. At the most, you will simply be dangling until a guide can assist you (most folks are able to assist themselves back onto most obstacles).
