We offer four ziplines that soar over majestic oaks and valleys amid a breathtaking backdrop of vineyards, mountains and forest.
Our zipline canopy tours are designed to accentuate our larger mission: to promote a deeper appreciation for our natural surroundings and heritage.
Departing from a looming hillcrest, you will soar 1,300 feet across a grassy valley and into an awaiting oak forest along a rugged flank of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Epic!
Next, you will travel 800 feet over the canopies of native blue and white oak trees before touching down on a steeply pitched mountainside. The Woodlander is a true treetop experience.
For the next 500 feet, you emerge from the oaks and digger pines and speed along until reaching a rocky outcropping with a killer view. The Hilltopper is our fastest ride, and it will get your adrenaline flowing.
Finally, you will descend 800 feet back into the forest and under a natural archway of companion oaks before emerging to a wide-open panorama of vineyards and mountains. Mission accomplished.
