Tree Climbing in Blue River, Oregon
Pacific Tree Climbing Institute’s overnight tree climbing excursion is no child’s play. As the sun sets, you’ll make the vertical climb up the 600-year-old Douglas fir tree named “Sophia.” Utilizing the Texas-style climbing technique, guests inch their way up on a single rope with ascenders. Hovering 200-plus feet above, you can take in the awe-inspiring views of the lush rain forest below at HJ Andrews Experimental Forest in the western Cascade Range of Oregon. Settle in on a sturdy canvas hammock, made with a two-inch-thick air mattress, and doze off to the sounds of rustling pine needles.
