Tree to Tree Adventure Park. At the first public aerial adventure park in the Pacific Northwest—and only the second of its kind in the United States—the aerial adventure course features 19 zip lines and more than 60 treetop elements and obstacles.

Harnesses and helmets are provided, and no open-toed shoes are allowed. 2975 S.W. Nelson Rd., Gaston, OR, 97119. 503/357-0109. www.treetotreeadventurepark.com. Aerial park $45, zip tour $75.
