Birds flit from tree to tree in the verdant canopy above Red Creek at Perkinston. The thing is, they aren't the only ones. Elevate Red Creek's web of ziplines and climbing nets sets people on the same footing of their avian neighbors. Whether adventurers are just after a day trip to the sky or renting out a cabin for the weekend, they'll find their excitement on the three aerial courses—here's a closer look at each of them:
- Kingfisher: In the first of the three courses, 12 obstacles climb from 13 to 40 feet in the air, challenging participants to navigate wobbly bridges, climbing walls, hanging nets, and two ziplines.
- Osprey: Elevate's second course ups the intensity of the first—20 challenges including swinging logs, swaying stairs, and a 600-foot zipline thrill over 50 feet above the forest floor.
- Mockingbird: The third course is aimed at younger audiences, and only ranges from 3 to 10 feet in the air. Still, kids will find find plenty of fun on the swinging bridges and climbing nets above a pond full of gum and cyprus trees.
