You've climbed up the 60-foot observation tower and are now standing on the first platform as you get checks, practice and rechecks on your equipment. You look at your Canopy Guide, who smiles and gives you the "thumbs up" and you hear "ARE YOU READY?" Are you ready to challenge yourself on one of the longest and highest canopy tours in the world? With over a mile and a half of cable and several places over 200 feet high, the phrase "Tree Flight" definitely applies. You will zip line and traverse the cable and lily pad bridges from tree platform to tree platform as well as crisscross up to five times over the beautiful Snake Creek Gorge.
As you go in and out and over the trees, take advantage of the "bird's eye view" below. You may see one of our nesting pair of red tail hawks, a beautiful and slender gray heron or even an eagle. You might even catch a view of otters frolicking in the 100 ft wide cascading Snake Creek. Look for the paper mill ruins too! It was one of ten mills that operated in the bustling 1800's mill town of Banning. Your journey can end with a beautiful and scenic walk along Snake Creek, a hike in the beautiful setting along the ridges of the Gorge or with a 1500 ft long, high-speed Zip Line that can reach speeds of 60 miles per hour.
