A 4x4 vehicle takes you high above old sugar cane fields and onto private property in Kahoma Valley, where your tour guides are waiting to get you suited up with a harness and a helmet. Spend some time getting acquainted, and then head further up the mountain to the first zipline platform.
One guide zips across to show you how it's done before you're clipped in for your first ride. Fly high above a gulch on your way to a longer, faster second line. The third zip is a short hike away through native plants. Line 4 has you flying 500 feet (152 m) up in the air and leads you to the half-way point. Here, break to enjoy snacks and storytelling on a 1,000-foot-tall (304 m) clifftop viewpoint as you take in vistas that extend from the highest peak in the mountain chain out toward the Pacific.
Continue on to line 5—the highest on the course—and build up the courage to walk down the take-off steps for one of the fastest thrill rides of the day. The next lines have you experimenting with backwards flying and running starts before the grand finale at line number 8.
