What to Wear On The Bretton Woods Zip Line Summer Tour

Wear what you would for a hiking trip in the White Mountains. For cool weather, you may want to wear pants and a light jacket. A raincoat with a hood will be good for rainy and windy days. Shorts should have a 5-inch inseam, approximately mid-thigh, and tank tops are not recommended, for comfort reasons.

Because the course requires hiking on some short, rugged trails that link between zip lines, we recommend wearing hiking boots or sturdy sneakers. No open-toe footwear or sandals are allowed on the course.

Many people have a fear of heights and each person must determine whether the Canopy Tour is something they will enjoy. Some people who have a fear of heights still enjoy zip rides because there is always a sense of security. You will be double clipped into a 2-cable system at all times.

Their guides are true professionals and have gone through extensive training on safety and course management. They will help you through every step and provide you with the support you need to make this a fun and exciting experience.
