Tree to Tree Adventure Park is now open for its 2013 season, which lasts through mid-November! The aerial ropes courses, zip lines and treetop obstacles make for an invigorating outing, and this picturesque course is located in Gaston, near Hagg Lake–a short drive from Forest Grove.
Tackle the obstacle course high in the trees or venture out on a guided six-line, extreme zip-line tour, which features a 1,280-foot-long zip and 40-foot rappel. This “playground in the trees” was expanded in 2012 to include the latest zipline tour, “Woody’s Ziptastic Voyage.” This features six extreme ziplines (including one that is 1,280′ long!), a bridge and a 40′ rappel.
The original treetop aerial course has 12 ziplines among its 48 treetop elements and obstacles from platform to platform (tree to tree), including wobbly bridges, tight ropes, tarzan swings and more. New this season are two more aerial ropes courses, bringing the total to 80 elements of adventure!
I overcame my fear of heights by relying on the expertise and encouragement of a Tree to Tree staff member, who coached me from the ground while I stood nervously on a platform. The ziplines were thrilling!
Also available now is the 2013 Zip, Sip & Stay Adventure Passport, which includes overnight accommodations from your choice of four area hotels; lunch options at several area eateries; a choice of six wineries for wine tastings (and a wine purchase voucher); and Tree to Tree adventure passes. Packages start at $249 for two people.
Completing a course (or more!) at Tree to Tree requires a reservation, so call or email in advance. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. until two hours before dusk. For a birds-eye view of the Tree to Tree experience, watch this Koin Local 6 reporter tackle a course (video courtesy of Koin):
