Are Reservations Required?

We strongly recommend that you make reservations – we fill up quickly! We keep our orientation sessions small to make sure that each guest gets the personalized attention that they need to familiarize themselves with the equipment and to feel comfortable in the trees.

You can book online or give us a call at 503-357-0109

Reservations require full payment. We require a 48-hour cancellation/modification notice prior to your reservation in order to fully refund your deposit. If you are unable to give the outlined notice, we will do our best to work with you but cannot guarantee a refund. This also applies if you have gift cards, as we reserve the harnesses for you and turn away other guests when fully booked.

Summer Office Hours: Open from 9am-5pm daily

Off-Season Office Hours: Our office hours are limited in the off-season.  If we’re not in, please leave us a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

Check out more about our team building programs or get started by filling out our team building inquiry form.

What should I know before I arrive?

  • Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled reservation time.  Please allow plenty to time for traffic and parking – oftentimes throughout the season, parking can get tricky!

What is the Proper Attire?

Not sure what to wear on your tree top adventure? No worries – We can help.  You’ll want to be sure to wear comfortable athletic wear for your visit to Tree to Tree Aerial Adventure Park.  Here’s some tips and the details:

  • Wear closed toed shoes, no open toed sandals or flip flops. Closed toed shoes, such as sneakers, hiking boots, and closed toed sandals, are all permissible. No open shoes of any kind are allowed on the course.
  • Long hair needs to be in ponytail.
  • Shorts or long pants are fine, but remember we are in the trees, so beware of sap, dirt, bugs and pollen! Also, if you decide to wear shorts, we recommend at least mid-thigh length as your harness has leg straps that are generally uncomfortable rubbing on bare skin.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather. We are open rain or shine and will only close due to high winds or lightning.
  • Wear something comfortable for climbing. You will be required to wear a harness. Baggy clothing is not recommended.
  • You are going to be outside, so expect dirt, pollen and tree sap. You will probably get some on your clothes, so dress appropriately.
