Aerial Forest Adventure Park
Unleash your inner Tarzan (or Jane!) in the Aerial Forest Adventure Park, the newest in New Hampshire’s White Mountains! Test your balance and agility by working your way from platform to platform high in the forest, crossing bridges, climbing ladders, and zooming across ziplines. The park consists of five courses of varying levels of difficulty for every member of the family.
A Swiss design, the Aerial Forest is built to the standards of the Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT), consists of platforms and elements that range from 9 to over 40 feet off the ground. Once you’re outfitted with a harness and gloves, a safety orientation will teach you about the park’s Smart Safety Belay (SSB) system, a permanently-activated securing system where you’re always hooked up to safety anchors, even when switching courses.
Here are just some of the elements you’ll find in the park:
Log tightrope walk
Log suspension bridge
Hanging wooden blocks

Soar above the trees from peak to peak, and peak to base, travelling over 1.5 miles on the longest zip line canopy tour in the continental United States! It is fast, fun and exhilarating. This 2+ hour adventure is for thrill seekers and nature lovers alike. You can control your speed and even make a stop to enjoy the spectacular views. A top speed of 55 mph is possible as you make your way from the summit of Gunstock towards the top of Pistol – that’s over 3/4 of a mile! From there you’ll get aboard another set of lines, zipping from Pistol top to the Aerial Treetop Course Start, another 3,809 feet!
Start your adventure with training from our experience guides who will familiarize you with the specialized equipment. We train each participant to perform all activities that may be required on the course. The guides also use this opportunity to evaluate all participants to make sure they have the ability to safely complete the course. We do reserve the right to exclude anyone from participation for medical, safety, or other reasons.
Participants must be at least 10 years old, weigh between 50 and 260 lbs, and be between 4′ and 6’8″ tall. Children between 10 and 15 years of age must be accompanied by a participating parent/guardian.
Every participant must complete a Zip Tour Liability Release. Participants under the Age of 18 must have a Zip Tour Liability Release signed by his or her parent/guardian. If the minor will be coming with someone other than their parent/guardian, the Zip Tour Liability Release must be signed and notarized.

Mount Washington Resort
Situated high on the slopes of Bretton Woods and descending over 1000 feet of elevation, the 3-hour tour takes nature-lovers and thrill-seekers across a series of tree-top zip lines through a network of platforms high in the ancient hemlocks.
This unique canopy tour features a dual-cable construction (you slide below two separate cables, instead of just one), coated cables (to make for a quiet, more natural flight through the trees) and platforms and bridges milled from locally-harvested wood sources,
in keeping with our commitment to environmentally sustainable programs.
Once on the tour, our Adventure Guides describe the native flora and fauna,
in addition to discussing the surrounding area, its natural history and White
Mountain lore. Each pair of guides may accommodate up to eight participants.

Adventure Ropes Course and Zipline
ALL ABOUT OUR CHOCORUA LOCATION!
Monkey Trunks in Chocorua, NH, offers adventure for visitors of all ages. In 2012 we converted all three of our courses (formerly known as the Mini-Monkey, King-Kong and Jungle) into one complete experience. Participants begin with ground school and receive a safety instruction on how to navigate through the course. They then move on to the Green course to demonstrate they have the ability to properly use their Smart Belays. After completing these two stages, participants will progress through the levels of the courses in order of Blue, Silver, Red and Black – each level becomes progressively more challenging!
We encourage monkeys to challenge themselves, but to stay within their physical limits. If you had a tough time completing a level, keep in mind that the next one is more difficult! After completing a level, participants cannot go back to the beginning. This course generally takes about 2-3 hours to complete in full. There is no time limit while using the course. We encourage you to move through each level at your own pace and enjoy every challenge. However, once you complete a level, you must move on to the next one; you are not allowed to go back to the beginning and start over.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
6 ziplines over and through the trees – Two of which you can ride side-by-side with another monkey!
Challenges that include swinging beams, tightropes, rolling logs, hanging tires, cargo nets and more!
Enjoy all of these activities as low as 10 feet and as high as 55 feet off the ground!

The Canopy Zip-Line Tour, located on Mount Sunapee’s South Peak features a series of ziplines, rope bridges and rappelling as you descend from the summit. There are eight ziplines in total highlighted by the final 1,000’ dual zip-lines to a platform behind the Welcome Center, from which you will rappel back down to earth. From the first tree platform to the last platform you will travel a distance of almost ¾ of a mile above the forest floor.
