Guides lead visitors on aerial tours on single-cable ziplines that stretch up to 1,000 feet long and reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. They also guide guests of all ages through three suspension bridges and two elevated rappelling stations connected by canopies of cedar and pine forest.
Zip Yosemite’s staff requires all visitors to wear sturdy, close-toed shoes or boots and encourages weather-appropriate gear such as long pants, coats, and hats depending on weather conditions.
The designers of Zip Yosemite, Experience Based Learning, focuses on adventure and safety in building their courses, but they also take care to look after the environment. The company uses Professional Ropes Course Association–accredited builders, who anchor single cables to trees using an environmentally-friendly system. Using this system, the company can string seven ziplines up to 1,000 feet long at heights of up to 80 feet through the aromatic canopies of incense cedars and ponderosa pine trees. Guides take visitors darting down these single-cable paths and across three suspension bridges. Then, they rappel toward the forest floor at one of two rappelling stations. As visitors glide through the forest, they can catch glimpses of wildlife as well as the Fresno Dome and other natural rock formations.
