Hang Out in the Trees at The Adventure Park at West Bloomfield

August 7, 2017  |   Story by Danielle Alexander  |   Photos by The Adventure Park at West Bloomfield

Five-acre aerial forest, 10 trails, 13 zip lines, five difficulty levels and 130 challenges only add up to one thing: The Adventure Park at West Bloomfield. Located “in the trees” adjacent to the Jewish Community Center, its zip lines and obstacle courses are not only designed for a variety of ages (beginning as young as five) but also abilities.

Prior to setting out, climbers receive a complete safety orientation. Still a tad fearful? Don’t be! The trails were intentionally designed so that climbers can experience self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. You are required to wear a harness that is securely attached to the safety line at all times. Park guides are available to assist, as well.

Once on the main platform, you will see 10 separate trails heading “off and up” into the treetops. Like a ski mountain, each climber can choose their own trail level, which is marked with different color codings (yellow is the easiest and double black is the most difficult). The majority of climbers complete two to four trails in three hours.
