A nine zipline canopy tour built over the hills and valleys of historic Union Park, an early 1900's formal park and gardens. Ziplines range in length from 300'-1,000'. Includes four modest hikes over game trails and includes a dual 800' zipline which allows riders to race over the valley floor. The concluding zip, over 1,000 feet long, literally drops out of the sky. Open to the public daily from May through October with advance reservations.

The four of us had not been ziplining before, so we were all newbies. Jake and Jon were excellent tour guides. We always felt safe, always had fun, and we learned about Union Park.

We had an excellent time. Max and Jon were personable, friendly, and entertaining. We had two apprehensive zip liners and they loved this experience. Highly recommend.
