Get a different view of the surrounding forest with our TreeTops Zipline Canopy Tour. This activity consists of 10 ziplines, five sky bridges, a couple of short hikes, and a rappel at the end.
You’ll descend through a series of deciduous trees as each zip gets a little longer and a little higher. As the forest turns into a Hemlock stand, you will cross pristine Mill Creek as you continue through the course. A series of short sky bridges allows you to take your time and really experience the forest. A short hike brings you to ‘Rock Launch,’ one of the longest zips on course. A couple more zip lines, a bridge crossing, and a rappel brings you back to solid ground.
Part of the TreeTops admission fee goes towards the treatment, prevention, maintenance, and protection of a small section of Hemlock forest along Mill Creek from the invasive Wooly Adelgid, a small but voracious insect capable of killing these majestic old trees.
TreeTops can accommodate a group of 8 guests and 2 guides at any time slot. If you are a party of more than 8, you will be split into multiple start times.
Our aerial guides are trained extensively on the courses. They work both in normal operations and in rescue.
We provide harnesses, helmets, gloves, and guides.
Closed-toed secure footwear is required. Dress for the weather: bring a jacket, fleece or a windbreaker (in the event of rain). Avoid loose clothing and store loose items at our facility before your trip. Sunglasses, sunscreen, and a water pack are recommended. Long hair should be tied back or braided.
TreeTops Zipline Canopy Tour meets at our Mill Creek Campus.
Minimum age is 10. Participants must weigh between 90 and 260 lbs. You will be weighed on a go-no go scale. It’s also a good idea to consult your family physician to determine whether you are physically capable of handling an increase in activity, adrenaline, and short walks up hills. In addition to 10 ziplines, TreeTops has 5 sky bridges, 2 short hikes, and 1 30 foot rappel. The longer hike is 800 feet long at roughly 10% grade and the second is about 200 feet long. Some restrictions apply (heart conditions, pregnancy).
Our professional guides will review the procedures, explain the hazards during a practice ground level zip. You will be double-clipped onto two steel cables, which are capable of supporting more than a ton of weight. However, at anytime during the practice zip you can opt out of the tour.
TreeTops Zipline Canopy Tour was built by Bonsai Design, the premier zipline design and build company in America.
Tours run rain or shine. We temporarily close the course during lightning storms or high winds. If we know in advance that we will be closed, we will try to contact you. If your tour is canceled, we will offer you the option to participate in another activity, rebook for a different day or time, or issue a rain check.
