Overview

Obstacle Courses in the Tree Canopy

Looking for a challenge the whole group can take on? Suspended over four acres of the forest floor, TimberTrek Adventure Park encompasses seven obstacle courses in the tree canopy. Each course offers up different physical challenges that range in difficulty, from kid-friendly obstacles to difficult obstacles that challenge even our most experienced rock climbing guides!

Your group of up to 20 people (reservations are strongly recommended) will be given three hours to move along a crazy series of nets, swinging bridges, zipines, suspended tunnels, platforms, and more. TimberTrek is a self-guided adventure, but one of our trained guides will be on the ground to monitor the group and coach you through each challenge. So, gather the group, gear up, and get ready for an arboreal adventure unlike any other.

FAQ

Requirements and Limits

  • The minimum age for this adventure is four years old, though additional supervision and safety restrictions may apply to participants under 14 years old.  See the course chart for age requirement breakdowns.  “With adult climber” means that an adult must accompany a youth on the course itself. “Supervised” means that an adult may monitor from the ground and must remain present throughout the duration of the youth climbing. We require all children under 14 to be accompanied by an adult. Climbing with your child will enable them to climb more courses.
  • The maximum weight per person is 260 pounds.
  • All guests participating must fill out a waiver prior to your trip. Those under 18 will need assistance from a guardian when filling out their form.
  • No alcoholic beverages, illicit drugs, or tobacco products allowed while in our gear on our courses.
  • Closed-toed shoes are an absolute requirement.
  • We do not allow pregnant individuals on our high ropes course. Please consult your guide about any other medical conditions before you head out onto our courses.
  • A moderate level of physical ability is required to complete our courses, we require participants to start with our easier courses as you work your way up to our more difficult courses.  Please note that while TimberTrek courses vary greatly in difficulty, you will be using your muscles, balance, and agility on our difficult courses - think American Ninja Warrior levels of physical rigor.
  • TimberTrek can accommodate up to 20 participants per group within one three-hour time slot. Reservations are strongly encouraged.

What’s Included

We’ll provide expert safety instruction and all the necessary safety gear, including helmets, gloves, and harnesses.

What to Wear

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.

Where to Meet

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.

Trip Length

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.

Hours and Reservations

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. 

Do I need to be fit?

You do need a degree of physical fitness to complete our courses, but its very rare for someone to stop climbing all together because they weren't fit enough.  Start easy and work your way up!

Do I have to pay if I want to just watch?

No, our courses have trails underneath that loved ones can use to follow along with participants that are climbing.

How long does each course take?

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.

Safety

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).
