Two guides lead groups through the tree canopies of northern Vermont’s Green Mountains, passing over mountain streams and darting past ancient hemlocks, sugar maples, and paper birch. They show guests how to cross suspension bridges and rappel down to the forest floor while divulging facts about local ecology and natural history. Guides supply all helmets and harnesses, and participants are connected to a safety system—usually an overhead belay line—at all aboveground points. The tour is located at Smugglers' Notch Resort near Stowe, Vermont. Click here for more details.

Though ArborTrek Canopy Adventures sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

ArborTrek Canopy Adventures

As riders learn the names of ancient trees and watch a stream meander through the mountains, wind rushes past their ears. That’s because they are following two guides along courses set by an overhead belay zipline—only stopping to traverse a swinging suspension bridge or rappel down toward the forest floor. ArborTrek Canopy Adventures cofounder Michael Smith devises these tours, drawing from more than 18 years as a challenge-ropes-course builder, manager, and trainer. He leads a trained staff of zipline guides versed in wilderness rescue and first aid as well as ecology, geology, and the local histories of areas such as Vermont’s Green Mountains. On each tour, two guides lead groups across interconnected ziplines, aerial bridges, rappelling walls, and other challenge elements. All the while, they follow a path that reveals facts about local history and ecology, such as which trees are native and what eggs forest rangers hatched from. ArborTrek’s builders design each course to work with the environment, and they minimize their environmental impact by consulting with local foresters, wildlife experts, and engineers.
