My 12 year old and I went climbing and on the rope course, while our 16 year old and my husband went on the ziplining tour. We both had a great time and my 12 year old even concurred some fears. Lots of fun games to play if you get there early and/or are waiting for other members in your... More

The team here was great. From the registration process, changes based on bad weather, and overall friendliness. Very welcoming and helpful to get the day started. It took only 15 minutes to go through the "training" so that we could start out. Scout was great as our guide. It was just me and my son, but we were grouped with... More

We had plenty of excitement for 2 people in their mid to late 60's. Our guides Tanner & Melissa were very accommodating and patient. We... More

Can't say enough good things about our experience. Easy to reserve, easy to find. Started right on time, and ladies in the reservation center were very friendly and helpful. Grounds are gorgeous, with activities (corn hole, horseshoes, etc), chairs and picnic tables available for your use. Intro was short but informative, and your quickly on the course. Our guides, Jack... More

My husband and I went here for a day during our honeymoon, and had a blast! The treetop obstacle courses were so fun - they started everyone off at an easy course closer to the ground, and once you finished that they let you go to a more challenging course that had areas much higher up in the trees.

The course was great but the best part is the people. Our guides were Asa and Mallory. I am terrified of heights and Mallory stayed with me on the ground while I worked through the obstacles. They were both incredible.

Staff are friendly and safety focused, had a great time on the zip line. Not a big fan of heights but this was manageable and so much fun. Rapelling was challenging and thrilling, the staff are so good with instructions and encouragement as well as keeping you always safe. First time ever ziplining, want to do it again!

This is a course of 8 zip lines, 2 extension bridges and 2 repels is worth the time and money. The first time we were told a great deal of information about the trees, the course and... More

We live in Vermont and were visiting out-of-state friends who rented at Smugglers' Notch for the week. We all decided on the spur of the moment to go to ArborTrek, just down the road. So glad we did- what a blast! Our group was four increasingly middle-aged adults and four energetic boys ranging in age from 7 to 11. Another... More
