Climb and zip line through the pine trees of Tahoe at the first aerial treetop adventure park in California. The new Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park, located at the Granlibakken Resort and run by North Tahoe Adventures, offers a series of rope courses and a zip line for both children and adults of all athletic abilities.

Sessions at the Adventure Park cost only $45 for adults and $35 for children under the age of 12. You can choose from the Green, Blue or Black levels, which all have different courses and heights. Some of the courses - like The Monkey and Fuzzy Bunny - are for beginners, while other courses - like The Spiral - include more advanced ropes challenges and zip lines.
The Twins is a canopy course that has a 120-foot-high suspension bridge between two 500-year-old cedars and a 500-foot-long zip line. The Windchimes course is great for families or corporate challenges. It's comprised of nine different events, including two 100-foot zip lines and one 300-foot zip line.
Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park is open daily from June through September, with sessions every hour from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. In the winter, the park is open on the weekends when the weather cooperates. Each session lasts 2.5 hours, and the first 30 minutes of every session is dedicated to getting all participants outfitted in gear and through the “ground schools."
