What is there to do?

Have you ever wanted to swing through the trees like Tarzan, or check out what it's like to be a bird high in the trees? Just head to Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course and you can experience just that!

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course is a super fun and challenging outdoor ropes course which let's those active family members use zip lines, navigate bridges and overcome those obstacles through the treetops of Maryland. It's a great way to keep active too!

When you arrive for your high adventure, you will be given a 30 minute safety briefing and training, so you all know what to expect. Then, after you're equipped with carabineers, harnesses and pulleys, you're on your way into the forest canopy!

Rock Creek Park is actually the FIRST Go Ape Course in the USA - pretty impressive! The course is made up of 6 zip lines, 2 Tarzan swings, and 44 crossings that will really challenge you! Want to know something else that's really cool? One of the zip lines is actually the USA's FIRST skateboard zipline!

There are also numerous rope ladders to really get that blood flowing and muscles working!

Each of the 6 sections takes you higher and higher into the trees, and each one is slightly more challenging than the last! Go Ape Rock Creek Park is also located in the stunning 75-acres Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Park, and with hiking trails, picnic areas and boat rentals, you can make an even bigger day of it and enjoy nature!
