High and Low Ropes Challenge Course


In this one-of-a-kind Siskiyou learning experience, groups will spend the day navigating our high and low elements supported by trained instructors. Our course includes a climb up a 100 ft. Douglas fir tree, a dive through the treetops in the giant swing, and a catwalk across a suspended log. Our low ropes element course is only conquered only through critical thinking, communication and teamwork.  This experience thrills while it stretches comfort zones, instills trust in peers and enforces a spirit of collaboration. A group of at least five participants is required to run the program (high ropes harnesses accommodate waist sizes 22-51 inches).
 

Great for birthday parties and quality family time! Cost is $27 per participant.
