Description

This has one of the highest jump-off platforms at 18 metres! You’ll also soar for 200 metres over the top of Grizedale Beck, and the longest zip wire is 275 metres.

If all that height is not your thing, you can try the Forest Segways, and stay firmly on the ground.

While you are at Grizedale, try some of the walking or cycle trails.
If you’ve not brought your bikes, you can hire some there.
