    A Must-Do for Adventure Seekers!

    The Sunset Treeclimb was truly a breathtaking experience unlike anything I’ve done before. Duncan was a great guide, giving us a comprehensive lesson to prep us for the climb before leading us on a gorgeous hike through the park. The view was incredible and well worth conquering my fear of heights, I felt extremely safe the whole time. This was our favorite activity from our long weekend in Portland!! Loved it! A few heads up: the trail was muddy- wear shoes you don’t mind getting dirty, it was quite chilly once the sun set, the harness wraps around your legs- long pants helped!

    Tree Camping?! YES, Please.

    This was by far one of the coolest adventures I’d been on. I did the overnight tree camping experience and it’s truly an unforgettable, amazing experience. It’s like backpacking but in a tree! This was my first time doing any kind of vertical climbing. It was not easy but it is very doable, especially once you get into the rhythm of it! It was truly breathtaking to see the forest from another perspective. Once we got to the top and settled into the hammocks for the night, I felt very much at peace. Our guides Leo and Megan were so great, they were very helpful, patient and made sure we were comfortable and safe the entire time. If you’re looking for a unique, unforgettable experience amongst the trees, I highly recommend this!

    Spectacular sunset climb, unique experience at 270' up a tree.

    Spectacular sunset climb! Never have I done anything like it before. Wonderful experience for people of all ages. We had 20-somethings to 60-somethings in the group. The staff is very friendly, helpful, supportive, and, of course, safety conscious. Climbing 270 feet up sounds daunting, but you go at your own pace and everyone made the ascent comfortably.
