A favorite New York adventure travel activity among my guests is a visit to the Catamount Aerial Adventure Park here in Hillsdale, New York, on the border of Massachusetts. It is an easy 15 minute drive from the Inn at Green River.
The park offers an aerial forest adventure for people of all ages (that is 7 & older) and abilities. Eleven courses of varying degrees of difficulty challenge you to cross bridges, climb ladders, negotiate obstacles, and glide across zip lines. Your intrepid innkeeper did just fine on the two easiest levels, yellow and green, but I did not have the upper body strength for the blue and black courses. I made it through about half of a blue level course, then took the escape zip line! Nevertheless, I found it exhilarating, and I am sure you will too!
The park is scheduled to open for the 2012 season in May, but check back, as it may open earlier this year due to the very early spring we are experiencing. Book a two night, midweek stay at the Inn, and we will pay for 1 ticket. The cost for adults is $51, children’s passes are less.
