Your lead guide zips first to each platform and then each guest in your party is clipped in, one at a time by the other guide who lets you know when it’s okay to zip. Then you’re off! As you pick up speed, the forest canopy opens up before you and you feel the exhilaration of the wind whipping by your face.
As you approach the far platform, the lead guide signals you to brake or to keep coming so you reach the tree at a controlled speed. Before you’re unclipped from the zipline, your guide clips you into the belay loop on the tree so you’re always clipped in at height. While you’re watching your friends come zipping in behind you, check out the views out over the Deerfield River Valley and the northern Berkshires, the forest around you and that feeling of adventure you’ve just rekindled!
