The Vertical Trek – Roundtop Mountain Resort
Updated 1/25/14 – We enjoyed Roundtop Mountain Resorts Vertical Trek zip line tour so much a few years ago that we decided to do it again – it is worth a repeat. This tour is completely hidden in the trees on the mountainside so don’t be fooled when you first pull in. There are a couple of smaller zip lines near the base area but they are part of Roundtop’s Adventure Package, but they are not a good indication of the adventure that awaits above! Read more ›
TreeTops New River Gorge Canopy Tour
The TreeTops canopy tour is everything I love in a zip line tour – natural surroundings, great scenery and a bunch of really fun zip lines. They make it a point to tell you that they tried to integrate the course into the natural surroundings and they have succeeded spectacularly!
Their website is attractive and has lots of good content. The only issue I had with it was that it was very slow to load. Now it could have been my connection, but I’m thinking there were probably some issue on their end. The good news is that they have a huge phone number and live chat link at the top of the pages so it is easy to get around the slow site. Read more ›
Laurel Ridgeline Canopy Tour – Seven Springs Resort
After experiencing the Screaming Hawk tour at Seven Springs a while back, I was excited to try their more comprehensive Laurel Ridgeline Tour. While Screaming Hawk is a great activity to pair with some of their other offerings, the Laurel Ridgeline tour can easily be the focus of your day.
Seven Springs is located in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of Western Pennsylvania. The resort is huge with a hotel, variety of food choices and a good selection of other activities that could easily fill up an active three-day weekend. It is conveniently Read more ›
Aerial Excursion Tour – Refreshing Mountain Camp
Refreshing Mountain Camp (RMC) is a very nice facility originally designed for non-denominational religious retreats. They have grown steadily over the years and now boast a variety of fairly large group lodging options, a swimming pool, recreational facilities and two very legitimate canopy/zip line tours. They are located between Lancaster and Reading, PA, easily accessible from Rt. 222 or exit 286 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
The day I visited the place was pretty quiet being too early in the season for the summer activities to kick in. I had heard many positive comments about RMC so I decided to check it out with a few friends. Read more ›
