Zoar Outdoor, Zipline Canopy Tours
An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Sunday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until November 14, 2021
We offer a one-of-a-kind zipline experience at Zoar Outdoor. Our three-hour canopy tour consists of 11 zip lines, 2 sky bridges and 3 rappels that whisk you through a breathtakingly scenic landscape high above the Deerfield River Valley in the northern Berkshires. Our friendly professional guides help you navigate your aerial trek through the trees, teaching you the basics of braking and the proper riding position. As you make your way from tree platform to tree platform and disconnect from the everyday, you’ll find yourself connected to nature and to each other in a whole new way.
After you’ve registered, we will help you get into and properly fit your harness and helmet. Then it’s up to the practice zip!
A short hike from the base, our practice zip gives you a chance to get comfortable with zipping, braking and self-rescue on a short, low zip line. Once everyone is checked out and able to safely zip, our guides will take you up to the vehicles that will transport you to the top of the course.
A 5 minute 4×4 ride brings you a mile and 500 feet vertically uphill to the start of the course where a short hike leads to the first take-off platform. The first zip is slow and short to give you a chance to get acclimated to flying through the trees. The second zip leads to a spectacular view of the Deerfield River Valley and the northern Berkshires as you perch over the edge of the ridge on a 100+ year old pine tree.
Throughout the course, you’ll ride 11 different ziplines. The zips vary in length and height but it is a progressive course, meaning the zips get longer and faster as you zip through the tour. You will also walk across two sky bridges, rappel from three platforms with the assistance of the trip guides.
A rappel at the end of the top section of the course leads to a water break and a short downhill hike to the start of the next section. The lower course consists of sky bridges and longer zips that culminate your adventure in the trees.
A downhill hike leads back to our base where you can share stories and memories of the trip and look at photos of yourself zipping just moments before.
