ZIPLINE + KAYAK = SKYAK
Same Great Crater Lake ZipLine Canopy Tour Plus!!! Join us for the entire 9 zipline tree-to-tree canopy tour then have a break for a picnic lunch. After you’ve had time to relax and replenish, you’ll change gears (and probably clothes) and head out with ROE! for kayaking at nearby Malone Springs. This beautiful spot is calm water paddling through the kayak trails of the Upper Klamath Lake wetlands. ROE! will supply all of the kayaking gear, your guide and transportation roundtrip from Crater Lake Zipline to Malone Springs. Plan to check in for your adventure at Crater Lake Zipline 30 minutes before your scheduled tour. Both tours and lunch usually take about 7 hours from beginning to end.
READY FOR YOUR SKYAK ADVENTURE?
Crater Lake ZipLine Canopy Tour is a 9 zipline tree-to-tree canopy tour through the Fremont-Winema National Forest. This guided adventure through the treetops takes 2-3 hours to complete with tremendous views of Mt McLoughlin, Upper Klamath Lake and the surrounding Cascades. You’ll experience the longest ziplines in Oregon on the only zipline Canopy Tour on National Forest land in the Nation!
Fly high into the Tree Canopy on 9 ziplines at heights of up to 100 feet in the trees, traverse two skybridges and conquer two controlled rappels! Participants zip from tree to tree with two trained (plus friendly and entertaining!) guides handling your transfers. We use state-of-the-art equipment and all tours include a ground school training session facilitated by your guides at the beginning of the tour. Participants learn to hand brake, (participants use their hands with a special glove to slow and brake themselves) sit in their harness, and other techniques needed for zipping. Please plan to be onsite for 2 to 4 hours. Participants must check in 30 minutes prior to their scheduled zipline tour, and most tours are in the trees for 2-3 hours.
Participants start at our Yurt Office with check-in where you will complete your participant agreement paperwork, get discreetly weighed in (yes, we really do need you to weigh at least 70 pounds and no more than 250 pounds in your shoes and clothes) and then meet your guides who will help you get your harness and other gear on in preparation for ground school and zipping. Next we drive you to the top of Tomahawk Hill in our six seater UTV’s where your guides will take you through our ground school. Ground school is simply an opportunity for your guides to go over what to expect on the course, how to use your gear, how to hand brake yourself and our procedures for you while on the course.
You will also have an opportunity to practice zipping and braking on a ground level zipline. After some practice, your guides will lead the way onto the course where you will zip from tree platform to tree platform on 9 ziplines, walk across 2 skybridges that are suspended between the trees, rappel/lower from one tree platform to a platform about 40 feet below using our DEUS device (this is a slow controlled descent) and then rappel out of the tree canopy and back to the ground from the last tree platform on the course. For the last rappel, your guides will clip you into the device and you will step off the platform for a 55 foot controlled descent to the forest floor. Once the entire group is back on the forest floor your guides will lead you on a short walk (about a football field length) back to the Yurt where you will take off harnesses. Many guests like to give their guides a tip. Bring some cash along for this as we don’t have an ATM onsite. Finally, you’ll want to stop in the Yurt to check out the photos of your tour and see all the cool swag like t-shirts, hats and sasquatch souvenirs.
