This looks really cool. Let’s all go climb a redwood!

This is also looks like a nope nope nope nope nope. Note those protective horizontal lines: they don’t go down to each step, rather, they’re assuming you don’t stumble, slip, and fall through those large gaps.

A friend of mine grew up in rural Humboldt County among the redwoods, and–stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

So happy your friend bounced! What a story. Sonoma Canopy Tours IS very, very, very cool! I’ve ziplined there 3 times, celebrating my birthday, and with friends. And then this June my husband & I celebrated 40 years there. We zipped, stayed overnight in a tree house, enjoying great meals, and zipped again the next morning. It is very safe. During the zip run you wear a harness and are tethered to guide wires, so even on the spiral staircase and on the swaying bridge, you are connected.

Oh, nope nope nope. No matter how safe it might BE, I know how unsafe I would FEEL. No thank you, wow.

Do they have a minimum height requirement for kids? Yes, I’m not sure how safe I would feel either.

No minimum height, but kids must be at least 10 years old AND weigh 70 pounds. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/adult. It is a lot of fun, with amazing views.
