The Tree Top Adventure Course Challenge transports guests to the valleys of the Pocono Mountains, where they tackle five treetop courses of progressing difficulty. Secured to a fitted harness, participants spend about three to 3.5 hours surmounting rope courses filled with aerial obstacles such as ladder bridges, Tarzan swings, and scramble nets. The adventure ends with a choice of the 1,000-foot zipline or the new mountain coaster, which lets guests control their own speed as they grin maniacally down the mountainside. Outdoor Connections rates the Tree Top Adventure Course for guests of moderate to intermediate fitness. Check-in time is 7:15 a.m. on the steps of the U.S. Post Office across the street from Penn Station—participants may catch Outdoor Connections’ shuttle or drive themselves. A continental breakfast and a lunch are included, and everyone returns to the city around 6 p.m. See the itinerary here.<p>

Outdoor Connections

Despite the adventure that the urban landscape of New York has to offer, some city dwellers can’t shake the itch to climb boulders, hike mountain trails, and surge through whitewater rapids. One group of New Yorkers decided to remedy this, organizing weekend retreats to places such as the Adirondacks and New Hampshire's White Mountains. As word of their adventures grew, more and more people asked to join, and thus began Outdoor Connections. Today, its guides lead outings for adventurers of all fitness levels, from a day of apple picking, hiking, and wine to full-moon hikes with campfire roasts and unabashed howling. Loading up large passenger vans, Outdoor Connections' team takes guests to places such as state parks and preserves in the Adirondacks and Catskills, as well as along the Hudson River Valley and Delaware and Lehigh Rivers.

What a great time I had on my snowshoeing trip! Jim and his crew were knowledgeable, helpful, very friendly, and displayed a passion for doing what they enjoy and sharing that exuberance with others. I got to experience something new that I was curious about trying and made some new friends in the process. I definitely look forward to another outing with Outdoor Connections!!
