This forested parkland makes for a great day hike with fantastic views, especially from the wooden suspension bridges that soar a hundred feet overhead.

The climb before getting to where the canopies begin is also a tough one for anyone looking to shed off some calories for the day. 7 canopies with great experiences and offering different views of the forest.

Our tour guide was great (Kwabe I think). He was informative and super supportive and comforting while on the canopy walk. Would definitely go back, and absolutely recommend it.

Yes you can. If you are 8+ months you may not want to do that.....but I didn't see any restrictions for that the last time I was there. Keep in mind you have quite a steep hill to climb to even get to the first family. Head... More
