Go Ape is the  Zip Trekking Adventure – a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs.

A brilliant day out for the adventurous and for those not quite so adventurous you can just look!

You can enjoy two to three hours in the trees taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings; a high ropes course for all the family. Set in a forest of sky-scraping Douglas Firs, Grizedale feels seriously high, mainly due to its vertigo-inducing 19 metre platforms. There are two Zip Wires which fly over the road below!Grizedale ropes
