Most of the time, your only chance to check out the upper reaches of a giant redwood is when one falls to the ground.
Unless you head south to the Santa Cruz mountains for Mount Hermon Redwood Canopy Tours.
With six ziplines -- one longer than 400 feet -- and two sky bridges suspended 150 feet above the forest floor, you'll explore a giant redwood forest Rise of The Planet of The Apes-style.
Although unlike in the movie, you won't wish you could take back the two hours spent at Mount Hermon. But you'll see the Bay Area's native forests from a new perspective.
Choose from a guided adventure, or a self-guided path through the Sequoia Adventure Course, which allows you to buddy up to take on high-flying physical challenges whose comparative awesomeness has not been seen since the days of Double Dare.
Minus the green slime, of course.
