PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE RSVP'ING YES.
Because so many have included this as one of your 3 bucket list items I'm adding it just for you. Ok... I reeeally want to do it too!
Why Brampton and not Stouffville or Barrie? Because Brampton has the mother of all zip lines. The Great Blue Heron as it's called features twin 1000ft zip lines that cross right over Heart Lake. Check out the video. It's awesome!!!
Treetop trekking is made up of a huge variety of courses. Amongst them you'll find courses ranging from beginner to advanced, and extreme courses that will test even the most experienced climbers. If you're not comfortable with the next course level you can do the same one you just finished or proceed to the zip line.
Equipped with a safety harness (clips in at all points of the course) and a helmet (disinfected every day) you will explore a series of obstacle courses leading from tree to tree high above the ground. The graduated courses are made up of zip lines, Tarzan swings, balance logs and bridges.
There's a mandatory safety orientation that everyone must take part in. The guides will explain the rules of the park and show you how to safely use the equipment.
You must meet both their weight and height requirements to be able to climb.
Minimum Height: 4'7"
Minimum Height to move on to advanced courses: 5'

To secure your spot via PayPal or credit card just click on the Yes tab under Are you going? You can also pay via e-transfer to [masked]. Security answer for e-transfers is: treetop. I need to add you from my end after receiving payment. *** For e-transfers... if you don't receive an email notification from your bank that the payment was accepted you should followup with me and/or your bank.
What to bring:
All the necessary safety equipment will be provided for you. Aside from comfortable clothing and close-toed shoes, it is also a good idea to bring a water bottle and gloves. They suggest wearing optional snug fitting gardening or biking gloves but if you don't have them you can buy gloves there for $2.
I was also thinking we could do lunch afterwards in the conservation area where this event is held... so if you want to hang around for a bit please bring something with.
You must be there at least 30 minutes prior to the climb to check in and get harnessed up.
Hope you can make it!
