High Ropes Course

Adventure at Claridon Woodlands: Not for the weak of knee

Do you have what it takes to climb up 32 feet and challenge yourself to eight 23-to-32-foot-long challenge elements including the Wobbly Logs, Icicle Traverse and Multivine? Give it a try at Claridon Woodlands! Ready to come back down to earth? Your exit is a hold-your-breath-and-jump, 100-foot-long zipline finish!

Access to the high ropes course is seasonal, and the 2021 season concluded on September 6. We hope you’ll visit this page again for a new schedule in the spring of 2022.
