About Sky Tours at YMCA Union Park Camp
A nine zipline canopy tour built over the hills and valleys of historic Union Park, an early 1900's formal park and gardens. Ziplines range in length from 300'-1,000'. Includes four modest hikes over game trails and includes a dual 800' zipline which allows riders to race over the valley floor. The concluding zip, over 1,000 feet long, literally drops out of the sky. Open to the public daily from May through October with advance reservations.

We had a group of 10 people, 8 of which have never been zip-lining before. Jon & Kelly our guides were personable, professional, knowledgeable and funny! They made our experience so enjoyable and fun! Can't wait to go back.
