May Trip - Day Hike and Zip-Line Adventure - Signups due THIS WEEK

Posted on Apr 26 2017 - 9:58pm

Sign-ups are due this week as we need to commit final numbers to the Zip-Line outfitters.

The May trip for Troop 437 will be a camping trip at Lafayette Place Campground. This trip includes a day hike on Saturday near Franconia Notch State Park. On Sunday morning, we will visit Alpine Adventures Zipline in Lincoln NH for th eultimate Zip-Line adventure.  To find out more about the zip line activity, visit http://www.alpinezipline.com.

Participants will have the choice between two zip-line courses:

The Treetop Tour starts with a gentle ground take-off to put you in the trees. If you’ve never been with us before, we recommend this adventure. It’s a great introduction to ziplining, or for those looking to explore the forest canopy up close and personal. Perfect for families, beginners and thrill seekers alike. Tour has 6 ziplines and one suspension bridge and takes about 2 hours to complete with a group of 13, including a shuttle from our office on Main Street and an exciting Off-Road ride up to the start of the course.

The SkyRider Tour is a bit more of a thrill ride with longer, higher & faster lines than the Treetop Tour. It’s recommended for guests who have ziplined before or enthusiastic first timers and adrenaline junkies as it begins from Treewalk Village, 60′ off the ground! This course takes 2½ hours to complete with a group of 13, including a shuttle from our office on Main Street and exciting Off-Road ride up to the start of the course.

Sign-ups are due April 27th with the required Alpine Adventure waiver form.
