Zip across the top of the Deerfield River Valley on six great zip lines, connected by awesome platforms, with overlooking great views, striking forests, a chairlift ride to the summit, and a chairlift ride down.

The Valley Jump Tour is our most exciting zip line tour. The zip lines range in length from 1000’ to 2,600’ and approach 200’ in the air.

Review of: Valley Jump Tour
Hard to beat a day ziplining in peak fall foliage no matter where or how you do it, but the staff at Berkshire were amazing to say the least. Our group was 4 and then two other couples toured with us on the Valley Jump Tour. Our guides Dylan and Bob (BOB DYLAN LOL) were the right mix of professional, skilled and hilarious (although I did feel like they waited until we were as far as possible from the base to drop rapid fire cow jokes at us). The guides really make the trip as good as it can be, and they were second to none. As far as the COVID stuff goes, the staff were good about social distancing and mask wearing. There was sanitizer at every step of the way, and everyone of the staff within the park was great about make sure to wear it like a mask and not like a neck protector (appreciated!). Overall, can't say enough about the trip. Just wish it was even longer, although 3 hours of zipping and hiking is probably enough for most people!

Great views, excellent guides and extremely well run. Great for kids and adults. Short hikes in between some of the runs, but not too much. The 2 1/2 hour tour length felt just right. We loved Bob and Hannah as guides and Tony was kind enough to help retrieve a lost phone at the end of the tour. There were three adults and three kids in our group between the ages of 9 and 13. All fully enjoyed the experience.

I have done this several times and can not wait to do it again. What a fun way to spend the day. The surrounding area is beautiful, especially in the fall. I want to take my kids soon.

We went on the Mountain Top Tour, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The guides were funny, personable, and, more importantly, very knowledgeable and skilled. We felt completely safe in their hands at all times! I've only ever ziplined on Aeriel/Ropes Courses before and have had a really hard time with my landings. I was a bit concerned before I started that I wouldn't be able to land safely on longer and faster ziplines. There was absolutely no need to worry! The guides take care of all the braking and make sure everyone lands safely. They really kept everything moving quickly, too! We had a lot of fun talking and joking with the other participants, so it didn't feel like we were standing around waiting for too long. We will definitely be back for the Valley Jump tour! Thanks to our amazing guides!

We did the 3 hr 6 line zip line tour. What an AMAZING experience we had. We both had the BEST time. We can’t wait to do this again, this was our first time zip lining. The guides Amy and Logan were so very helpful in all ways. Anyone can do this even with back issues or other ailments. We both HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing this. We will DEGINATELY do this again VERY soon. Also, the Thunder Coaster is a BLAST a must do while you are there. AWESOME EXPIERENCE!!!
