Treetop Eco-Adventure Park
What is Treetop Eco-Adventure Park? Think an obstacle course, except set in the forest and 10–85 feet above the ground. Participants wear harnesses and attach to zip lines, which allow them to navigate the course. But surely as an inquisitive explorer you have questions.
Which Route is Best?
The park splits its 60 aerial activities into four colour-coded routes.
Green: a beginner's course for adults and children 10 or older. Still no prance through the park: footbridges, zip lines, and other obstacles intersect 9 platforms.
Blue: an intermediate course for adults and children 10 or older. At the end you can either climb down or exit via a controlled leap known as the Tarzan jump.
Red: an advanced course for adults and children 10 or older. It doesn't get more challenging than the labyrinth and wall-climb obstacles that come between the course's 11 stations.
How Long Does It Take to Complete a Course?
Typically, two to three hours for an adult course. Each route also includes exit points where guides, like funk musicians, can help people get down.
Can Friends and Family Watch?
Yup. Non-participants can follow along with the guides, who monitor the courses via a series of forest trails. Guests of participants can access them for no charge. Children under age 16 require adult supervision.
What Are the Course's Safety Features?
Here are just a few ways Treetop Eco-Adventure Park ensures your trek through the trees is safe:
- Everyone participates in a safety demonstration on our specially designed demonstration course before starting the course.
- Harnesses attach to galvanized steel cables, which can support 10,000 lbs. (approximately the weight of an average-sized elephant or a solid-gold cello).
- All guides and ground patrollers are certified in first aid and CPR.
- Equipment inspected and certified yearly by the TSSA
- Guides trained the National Fire Protection Association's standards for High Angle Rescue

What Else Is There to Do?
Visitors can grab chips, granola bars, or cold drinks at the welcome center. A human foosball course and giant Jenga are available in the picnic area.
About Oak Ridges Moraine
It's not all about adrenaline-packed thrills at Treetop Eco-Adventure Park. The zip lines and obstacles also introduce visitors to the beauty of the Oak Ridges Moraine, and the guides hope visitors can walk away with a new appreciation for the area. The important geological land form covers some 190,000 hectares of Ontario, and it serves as home to threatened plant and animal species.
