Mount Hermon Adventures

Mount Hermon Adventures Review

Zipline through the redwoods, climb a giant live oak tree, and hunt for edibles in the Santa Cruz Mountains at Mount Hermon Adventure Center near Felton, 9 miles north of downtown Santa Cruz. On the two-hour Redwood Canopy Tour, follow a guide along a series of six ziplines and two suspension bridges in the redwood canopy. You can also join an ECO tour, where you harness up and ascend a live oak tree using a double-rope system, then go on an ecology walk to forage for sustainable edibles or learn about sand hill habitat restoration (four hours total). On select summer weekends, you can sign up for an aerial adventure course with a set of obstacles and challenges in the redwoods. You must be at least 10 years old and weigh between 75 and 250 pounds to join a tour. Reservations are essential.
