In Westchester, Boundless Adventures offers 11 treetop courses that will challenge your skills as you swing, climb, balance, and zip through the air. The courses are organized into four different difficulty levels for anyone from beginner to expert to try, and the terrain varies from bridges to ziplines to leaps as you’re tethered to ropes in the trees. Reserve your visit in advance for a discount on tickets, which range from $35 to $75 depending on your selection, and check the calendar for themed night climbs under the lights.

Catamount Zip Tour and Aerial Adventure Park

Catamount Mountain Resort, Hillsdale

On the border of New York and Massachusetts, Catamount Mountain Resort has two high-flying options. Book a ride on the Catamount Zip Tour for a two-hour experience unlike anything else as you soak in the magnificent views of the Berkshire Mountains. The last leg of the tour, lovingly referred to as the Catamonster, is the longest zipline span in the nation at just over a mile long. Alternatively, if you’re on the hunt for a more challenging, less scenic adventure, head to the aerial adventure park to try out nine courses of varying difficulty. Tickets start at $59 and grant you three hours of climbing time.

Thacher Park’s hidden gem, WildPlay has it all, from ziplines to aerial adventure courses to freefall jumps. This Albany County destination has three different course options that range from classic to extreme, each with their own unique set of obstacles like tightropes, cargo nets, rope swings, logs, wobbly bridges, ziplines, and more. At the end of the day, add on the What’s to Fear Jump for less than $15 to climb a rope ladder before leaping off the edge of a platform in the trees and falling 40 feet on a tethered jump line.
