TEAM BUILDING / ROPES COURSES
Trained and experienced Deer Run facilitators lead your group to focus on accomplishing specific tasks through cooperation, teamwork, goal setting, communication, and creative strategy.

You gently glide to a smooth landing just above the creek before making your ascent to your lofty perch hidden high in the towering treetops!
From there you make your final descent through the forest canopy 800 feet back across the creek in the valley below before gently landing at your hilltop destination! Zip Line packages are available for 2, 4 or all 6 zip lines!
