After you have read over the information, you can book a climbing event by clicking any "BOOK NOW" button on the website. Please choose any available date and time slot.

This was our first experience climbing and we loved it. The instructor arrived early and had all the ropes and gear set up and prepped for the day. The tree he chose was beatiful and with his careful instructions my wife and I were up in the tree in no time. Id recommend this adventure to anyone looking for a fun filled activity outdoors.

My climbing experience was amazing! It was great to connect with nature in a new way, I really felt like I was a part of it. You gently get to touch the tree and you move around the branches, it's so relaxing and joyful :) I highly recommend letting Canopy Climbers lead you on this fun adventure! I can't wait to do it again!

Had the opportunity to meet Charlotte the 150+ year old live oak that hosted our climb. Danny Lyons and Canopy Climbers took the time to demonstrate and educate me on this very safe and secure climbing system. I would have to say that climbing into the tree canopy was an amazing experience! It is easy to lose track of where the ground is when you're up there because you are surrounded by a diverse ecosystem with plant life and birds that you just don't get to experience everyday. Thanks again Danny Lyons and Canopy Climbers for this unforgettable experience.

We did the guided climb first and it was so much fun that we had to get back into the trees again. Took the BTCC with Danny and had a wonderful time. Cant wait to climb again!

We had an exceptional and unforgettable experience climbing into the canopies of old live oak trees in North Central Florida in beautiful Gum Root Park. Canopy Climbers gave us an amazing afternoon that was like no other. The company owner, Danny, gave us an outstanding presentation before the climb emphasizing fun, comfort levels and most of all safety. We had a diverse group ranging in age from 10 to 70 and we all climbed at different rates and to different heights enjoying the spectacular views, and plant life that's found at heights usually only seen by birds and wildlife. Danny was very professional, patient and so helpful to each one of us. Don't come down until you try a bathang! Highly recommend this activity for anyone who warns a new adventure.
