The Harpers Ferry Aerial Adventure Park offers a variety of aerial forest challenge ropes courses, with different difficulty levels and ample space spread across four wooded acres. It provides a fun and engaging experience for individuals of all ages.

Our courses offer approximately 12 elements, including ziplines. Children can enjoy activities such as leaping across hanging lily pads, navigating a wobble bridge, and climbing a tree-stump ladder. Additionally, we have two courses specifically designed for children aged 4-6, featuring the Saferoller Continuous Belay System, Adventure Trail, and Ultimate Tree House. These activities provide hours of fun for children in this age group.

The Edelrid Smart Belay System is used on our other courses to ensure that everyone is always harnessed and clipped to safety lines. The Harpers Ferry area, located just an hour away from Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD, offers a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, whether you’re on vacation or just visiting for a day trip.
