Duration: 2 Hours   - Tours leave every 1/2 hour in groups of 8.  Six (6) zip lines and two suspension bridges.

When:  September 22nd, 2012

Time: (1st Group of 8 - 10:00 am) (2nd Group of 8 - 10:30 am)

The Redwood Canopy Tours at Mount Hermon offers visitors an exciting eco-adventure into the redwood canopy of the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Enjoy the coastal redwood forest from the unique perspective only a zip line canopy tour can offer. The two hour guided tour includes six zip lines and two sky bridges at heights of up to 150 feet. Each tour of up to eight is led by two certified guides who share their ecological knowledge and bring the history of the Santa Cruz redwood forest to life. The Redwood Canopy Tours are the original canopy tour zip lines in the redwood forest and are the only facility of its kind in the region.

We'll stop at Willow Street Pizza in Los Gatos on the way back for lunch.

Participants must be in moderate good health, at least 52 inches tall and weigh between 75 and 250 pounds.  Children must be at least 10 years old. For youth under age 14, a parent or legal guardian must accompany them on the tour.  You may be asked to slow yourself using a gloved hand or pull yourself along a cable. You will also be asked to complete a “ground school” to learn the basics of zip lining prior to going in the air. If you have had a recent bone or joint injury, are pregnant, or have a serious or uncontrolled heart condition the canopy tour is not for you.

Operated rain or shine so please come prepared for the season and to be outdoors for two hours. Tours leaving before noon may be a bit chilly and foggy (especially in the summer!). For most months a light sweatshirt or windbreaker will do. Check the current weather conditions at Mount Hermon here. Please wear modest, comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes (no flip-flops or sandals). You will be wearing both a waist harness and upper body harness as part of your tour gear. Skirts, dresses and short-inseam shorts are not appropriate or comfortable in this context. Long hair will need to tied back. We reccomend removing large or dangling jewelry and all objects from your pockets.

    Carpool location noted above. Meet there and divide up then. You don't need any equipment or protective gear. They will have it all for you. Girls bring hair ties. Everyone, no flip flops or open toed sandals. Please be there by 9:45 am to check in. I have all of your reservations, no receipts are necessary. Cameras are ok to bring, but they must have a wrist strap and be small enough to tuck away while you're zipping. They are only allowed out while on the platforms. No overly bagging clothing (your welcome boys) Sunglasses will not be retrieved if you lose them. If you want to wear them, bring a cheap pair just in case. Riding crops are optional.

    September 20, 2012

    • Kimberly

      They will have all the equipment you need. You just need to tie your hair back, wear closed toe shoes and try not to wear really loose fitted clothing. Don't want it to get hung up in the lines.

      September 20, 2012

    • Chip E.

      Or let Del anywhere near you! Hehe

    Also...a few of us are going to TRY and go to Shaboom's in San Ramon for dancing on Saturday evening around 7:30. I say TRY because we may all be pooped after the day of Zip Lining. My Hike Group is going (they are a lot of fun). We'll play it by ear and see how we feel at the end of the day. Just throwing the idea out there for everyone to think about maybe going.

  • Nancy

    Do I need to dig out my receipt? Or do they have the info there?

    September 19, 2012

    • Kimberly

      I have everyones info. No need to bring reciept. You will need to fill out a small bit of paperwork when you get there. Just signing off that you understand the rules and a waiver.

    Thanks for doing this Kimberly. I never knew it was there to do. I have way too big of a commitment to break that day, but maybe you all will do it again, or maybe I should organize the next one.

    Teresa and Joe and Chip (Dale) will be doing arial displays for your entertainment along the way...once we all stop screaming and open our eyes.
