Amy and Jon are excellent tour guides! They made it a fun experience for everyone, paid attention to our needs, making the ziplining exciting adventure - even through our minor panic attacks. Appreciated their concern and education about the environment.

What a great day outdoors! From zip lines through the woods to obstacles crossing creeks and tree tops, this a great place to get moving and gain new skills. After a short training and safety session, we were set loose on several courses throughout the property. With guides nearby to help if needed, it was exhilarating to make it through... More

We were a group of 5 seniors and we had the time of our life on the zip line adventure. You can do it! We were a little intimidated (me) but mostly excited (the others). We all loved it - and even repelled off 2 platforms (you have to do this to get down). Our guides Josh and John were... More

This, for a family of four, is an exceptionally good fun and great learning in the woods. Pity is sooo expensive. Technical safety and guidance is perfect, and the place is beautiful.

My 4 children range in age from 9-18 and we all did the zipline. I was a little nervous since I really don't like fast rides or roller coasters! I found myself wishing it would go on and not end! We really had fun as a family teasing and praising each other and our guides were top notch! This is... More

Went zip lining for the first time while vacationing in Vermont. This was fantastic. Our guides, Alex and Josh, were great. They took a group of eight, 4 of which were terrified, up on the course and helped everyone of us have a great time. I'd recommend everyone to take the canopy adventure if going to that area. Don't let... More

Guides (Alex and Hope) were encouraging, upbeat and instructive. We were fortunate to meet seven others, from a third grader with her dad, to a couple celebrating their 42nd anniversary, all of whom were also looking for an unusual and fun experience. Once we went through the preliminary training, and saw (surprisingly easily) we had no fear of the height... More

Tour is organized, feels completely safe, and the guides were fun and informative about the local area. The sky bridges and repels make this a bit different than standard zipline tours.

We had the best time doing the tree top obstacle course. Josh was our guide. He was very informative and patient. He even gave us some great tips on local hiking trails. The course, especially the upper levels, was challenging but do-able. Looking foward to going back next year to do it all over again.
