What is an aerial adventure course?

Aerial forest adventure parks have been used in Europe for about 20 years but are new in the United States.  We are thrilled to bring you the first aerial adventure course in the New River Valley! Mountain Lake Treetop Adventures is an aerial ropes course built among a mixed hemlock, birch and oak forest. It consists of 3 separate, elevated courses for different ability levels and has over 30 elements that will challenge you to new heights.  Treetop Adventures will create lasting memories for the whole family!

Each course varies in terms of elevation and the strenuousness of the challenges. Elements include rope bridges, ladders, zip lines and more. We offer the latest and safest belay and harness technology. Once you go through the training, you are able to navigate the course self-guided - which we think makes it a lot more fun.
