Adventure Series 2013: Hunter Mtn Zip Line

SKYRIDER TOUR

Experience the longest, fastest and highest Zipline Tour in North America and the 2nd largest in the US! This is an Extreme Activity and it is not for everyone. With over 4.6 miles of ziplines, the SkyRider Tour begins with a scenic chair lift ride or an exciting off-road adventure to the Hunter Mountain Summit Lodge.

Attend Zipline Pilot Training School where you will be educated on pertinent flight and safety information that will fully maximize your zipping experience.

The tour includes five unique side by side racing ziplines. The first of which sets you soaring instantly on a 3,200 foot cable 600 feet above the valley, reaching speeds of up to 50 mph! This tour also features a special 500' self powered zap-line or a burma bridge option.

Allow approximately 3 hours to complete your tour.

Campground

Amenities: 7 camping loops; 219 tent and trailer sites; 2 lakes; 2 beaches; 3 picnic pavilion rentals; 2 picnic areas with tables and fireplaces or charcoal grills; playground; flush toilets; hot showers; boat launch (no motorized vessels); rowboat, canoe, kayak and paddle boat rentals; firewood sales; volleyball; horseshoes; fishing; playing field; trailer dump station; recycling center.

Hiking: The campground offers access to numerous hiking trails. The short hike to the site of the Catskill Mountain House provides the reward of incredible vistas. Longer and more strenuous hikes can bring you to such spots as Artist's Rock, Sunset Rock, Newman's Ledge, Boulder Rock, and the Kaaterskill Hotel and Laurel House sites. Kaaterskill Falls lies outside the campground and is reached by a trail beginning on Route 23A. The two tiered falls of 175 and 85 feet is the highest in New York State.

The waterfall is created by a stream that drains North-South lake where we are camping. When it has rained for several days prior to your visit, you will see the same view above. When it hasn't rained, the falls are just a trickle.


Cost (Includes Skyrider and 2 nights at the campground) is:

Camping $13.00 ($22/night x 2 + 9.00 or 53.00/4 people or 13.00/each)

ZipLine: $119.00

PayPal: $4.36 (0.30 + 2.9%)

Other: 3.64

Total: $140.00 (Camping Only: $20.00)

I will reserve 7 campsites (100-102 for 12 people) on 1 Apr.

Refunds. NO refunds, you must find a replacement.

    With a very busy BOM schedule in august, i have to think about time off, the finances required and which trips are priority for me, so am bowing out. Rats.

  • Rainee VanNatter

    I'm bowing out....won't have re-accrued the vacation time after Alaska and Wellesley island, and will need the 2 sick days if I do Mt Washington.
