This was our first time ziplining, and we were a bit nervous as it snowed just before our tour, but we were immediately comfortable with our very knowledgeable guides leading us through the beautiful canopy. We definitely want... More

It was easier than I thought and I was able to do all 8 ziplines, the 2 rope bridges, and 2 rappels. On one of the zips, I panicked and braked too soon and Jeremy was... More

My mom, sister-in-law, aunt, and cousins, spent our morning together zip lining at Arbortrek. Our guides were Mike and Carrie and they were both SO awesome. Our family are all local Vermonters and don't often partake in "tourist" attractions, but I'm so glad we zipped around Smuggs. Mike and Carrie were funny, entertaining, knowledgeable, and professional. We'd definitely go back.... More
