The Aerial Park is a series of platforms and “bridges” in a 4 acre section of the woods near the Tannenbaum Lodge. The platforms are built in the trees and the bridges and zip lines connect the platforms. The bridge may be a log, hanging chunks of wood or other obstacles or ladders and the challenge is to get across to the next platform. It is not all strength; it is more strategy and balance.
