Ropes course sessions will be available first come, first served, and require a trained staff member’s assistance to ensure fun and safe adventures for all. Hours are posted during the season; please refer to News & Updates for notice of exceptional hours.
One-hour sessions will be free to Geauga County residents (ID REQUIRED) but cost $20 per hour for out-of-county residents (credit card only, paid onsite).

What is a pump track? It’s a circuit of rollers for mountain bikers to ride by “pumping,” the goal being to ride it repeatedly without pedaling. A connected 2,025-foot-long linear single mountain bike track features several 2-foot-wide boardwalk crossings.
Across the way, climbers can test their strength and strategy on a new 12-foot-high, 900-square-foot freeform boulder wall, and a Nature-based playground for kids includes log balance beams, a canoe sandbox, a log tunnel, a play cabin, boulders and other various climbing elements.
