Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure – Rockville

 
Go Ape’s adventure course surrounds the 75-acre Lake Needwood in Rock Creek Regional Park, just outside Washington DC. The course is made up of six zip lines, numerous rope ladders, 44 crossings, and two Tarzan swings. Groups will travel high into the forest canopy and encounter challenging obstacles. In addition to the zip lines, your group can enjoy the forests, picnic areas, boat rentals, fishing and the 12-mile Rock Creek trail. Supervising adults will sign a waiver at Go Ape to accept responsibility, but you may wish to have your own permission slips for your records.
