Buona estate a tutti!
"Ferragosto" is a major summer holiday in Italy. Except for roaming tourists, Italian cities become ghost places as the locals travel to outdoor destinations such as beaches or mountain resorts. Come enjoy a nice summer picnic with us at Lake Needwood just east of Rockville, MD in Rockcreek Park.
Lake Needwood is surrounded by hiking trails through forests and along lake-shores, includes picnic areas, boat rentals, fishing and the beginning of the 12 mile Rock Creek hiker/biker trail into Washington DC. There's also a treetop adventure called "Go Ape" with a zip line course.
The treetop adventure course is made up of numerous rope ladders, 34 crossings to include the Giants Leap and Cacapon Crossing, 2 tarzan swings and 5 zip lines. There are 5 individual sections within the course, each section taking you higher into the forest canopy and finishing with a zip line more exciting than the previous one!
Here are the costs for the treetop adventure should you decide to participate:
Adult (18+yrs) $55
Kids (10-17yrs) $35
2-3 HOUR TREETOP ADVENTURE!
