SKYHIKE

Visit Sky Hike this summer to trek through the treetops on the nation's largest family adventure course.  No two hikes are the same!  Your choices make each hike a new challenge while secured to the patented overhead safety system.  
 

            Explore the quarter of a mile course with your kids.  Master suspended wooden bridges.  Leap from one wooden slat to another.  Balance on a single rope high above the ground.  Or climb to the top on vertical net bridges.   
 

            You have control of your trek as you pick from a 12 ft. trail for beginners, a 24 ft. high trail for the somewhat courageous and the super challenge trail at nearly 40 ft. in the air (four stories high), for the true daredevil in you. 

 Visit www.stonemountainpark.com or call 1-800-401-2407 for more information.
