We finally made it to the third step of the opening plan after a lengthy lockdown and being trapped indoors. If you’re searching for a fun summer outdoor activity, then treetop trekking should be at the top of your list. If you enjoy adventure, fun and challenging activities, there are numerous sites in the GTA to explore. Ziplining, obstacle courses, treasure hunting, and a variety of team-building activities are just a few of the things you can enjoy with your family and friends. There are six open tree trekking sites in the GTA, so don’t hesitate to hit the book button; they fill up quickly!
When you arrive at the location, one or more staff members will give you instructions on how to put on your harness, how to use your tools appropriately, and what safety regulations to follow throughout your stay. We recommend arriving 30 minutes early for the orientation, to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
You can even bring your younger siblings as their Barrie location offers kids tree trekking starting at the age of 5. However, dress appropriately for the weather, as the show will go on even if it rains.
If you aren’t afraid of heights, or even if you are, their aerial game trek is one of our favourites for facing your fears and overcoming challenges. Don’t try to cheat your way out of the obstacle courses by using your pulleys! The game has four difficulty levels, which are indicated by the colours green, red, blue, and black, respectively, based on their complexity and height from the ground. If this is your first time tree trekking, there are trained guides who will show you all you need to know, from how to put on and tighten your harness to how to use each piece of equipment (pulleys and your continuous hook) linked to your harness. You’ll need to keep your hook secured to the wire at all times, and your pulleys will be useful when ziplining.
Just when we thought their activities were thrilling enough, they added night treks! This activity is similar to tree trekking during the day, but with the addition of a flashlight to assist you in exploring the beautiful forest and starry nights. Don’t worry; there are plenty of guides supervising each activity, and you’ll have to demonstrate a fall and how to self-save before you start, so you’re in good hands.
You can even explore the forest during the fall season, taking in the colourful leaves and lovely scenery, so if you missed out on summer tree trekking, don’t worry; it’s open from April to November 15th.
Our favourite is the zip lining part. After you go halfway through your aerial game trek, you will reach a zipline where you will need to use your pulleys. The guide will show you how to do a zip line pose (butterfly) properly, so pay attention during your orientation session. Ziplining is extremely thrilling, and some people even found it to be less scary than the suspended bridges.
You also use nets to walk across trees, which are much easier and will give you a break from all the other challenging courses. The majority of the obstacle courses need upper body strength, so stretch beforehand and stay hydrated to avoid muscle cramps. Although you may feel some soreness in your arms the next day, it will fade with some stretching exercises. Don’t forget to bring hand gloves since they don’t offer them, but they will provide you with all the other safety equipment you’ll need.
Their activities are generally three hours long, but you are free to take your time in each one. Remember to bring snacks as well; trust us, you will be tired and hungry. The treetop trekking course is a wonderful way to bond with your friends while being active, and it’s always entertaining to see people come up with their unique strategies to pass the challenges. Don’t forget, If you are under the age of 17, you must have an adult with you and have your guardian sign a waiver.
