We're headed to the TreeRunner Adventure Park in West Bloomfield, MI for an aerial adventure! Here, we will work together to conquer the obstacles as a team!
About TreeRunner Adventure Park:
Our Aerial Park is made up of 12 aerial trails varying in difficulty, length, and height. The descriptions and photos below are a taste of what to expect during your adventure.
Your challenge begins at the Main Platform.
Climb the stairs up to the Main Platform where you will be greeted by one of our friendly Park Monitors. From there you can choose one of 12 trails. There are beginner trails (purple and yellow), two intermediate trails (green),two more advanced trails (blue), and two expert level trails (black and double black diamond). The two purple trails are built specifically for climbers ages five and six and younger beginners.
Climbers are required to demonstrate their ability to conquer a beginner trail before moving on to intermediate trails, and an intermediate trail before moving on to the more advanced trails, and more advance trail before moving on to expert trails.
