Zipline Canopy Tours

Common Ground Canopy Tours is a state of the art ZipLine Adventure that takes you up into the tree tops of the breathtaking Vermilion River Valley. Our guides will be with you throughout the tour, which takes about 2½ hours to complete. The guides at Common Ground are invaluable to the experience of ziplining here. Repeatedly cited for their excellence in customer reviews, our guides bring their knowledge of both safety and the surrounding environment with them on every tour.

The Canopy Tour is now in its fifth season and we’ve welcomed more than 10,000 people through our doors (and into our trees). Our guests have included children as young as 10 and adults as old as 90. We offer tours to individuals and groups, including curriculum-based school field trips, workplace retreats, and more.

What people are saying:

This was my first time ‘zipping’ and I felt very comfortable with the guides. There was much to see and the variety of zip lines was exciting. My wife and I enjoyed the course immensely. One of the best adventures we have had. We eased into the high stuff and in no time leaving the platform became less difficult. Sailing through the trees on a cable is a thrill.
