1 BIG ADVENTURE!

Participants fly high into the National Forest Canopy on 9 ziplines at heights of up to 100 feet in the trees, traverse two skybridges and conquer two controlled descent rappels! The 180° view treats us to a look at Mt. McLoughlin, Pelican Butte, Brown Mountain, The Upper Klamath Lake and Wetlands and the beautiful Fremont-Winema National Forest. Groups of up to 10 people zip from tree to tree with two trained (plus friendly and entertaining!) guides handling your transfers. We use state-of-the-art equipment and all tours include a ground school training session facilitated by your guides at the beginning of the tour. Participants learn to hand brake, (participants use their hands with a special glove to slow and brake themselves) sit in their harness, and other techniques needed for zipping. Please plan to be onsite for about four hours. Participants must check in 30 minutes prior to their scheduled zipline tour, and most tours take approximately three hours but run from about 2.5 to 3.5 hours in the trees.

Participants start at our Outpost with check-in where you will complete your participant agreement paperwork, get discreetly weighed in (yes, we really do need you to weigh at least 70 pounds and no more than 250 pounds in your shoes and clothes) and then meet your guides who will help you get your harness and other gear on in preparation for ground school and zipping. Next we drive you to the top of Tomahawk Hill in our six seater UTV’s where your guides will take you through our ground school. Ground school is simply an opportunity for your rangers to go over what to expect on the course, how to use your gear, how to hand brake yourself and our procedures for you while on the course.

You will also have an opportunity to practice zipping and braking on a ground level zipline. After some practice, your guides will lead the way onto the course where you will zip from tree platform to tree platform on 9 zips, walk across 2 skybridges that are suspended between the trees, rappel/lower in a tree from one tree platform to a platform about 40 feet below using our DEUS device (this is a slow controlled descent) and then rappel out of the tree canopy and back to the ground from the last tree platform on the course. For the last rappel, your guides will clip you into the device and you will step off the platform for a 55 foot descent to the forest floor. Once the entire group is back on the forest floor your guides will lead you on a short walk (about a football field length) back to our outpost and Yurt where you will take off harnesses and get ready to depart.
