Canopy Tours in Cypress Valley

The Hart family visited Cypress Valley Canopy Tours on a recent trip to Austin.   This is a little about their adventure:

When  we arrived at  the Cypress Valley Canopy Tours, they suited us up with a helmet, harness, and gloves.

They  gave us  training on how to  take off from the platforms, glide on the zipline  and how to land on the next platform.

Before we know it, we were on the first platform and they were locking us onto the zipline.

The first “Zip” is a little scary.   We took off from a platform over 40 feet in the air–don’t look down!

After the first zip trip, we couldn’t wait for the next one.

Our tour included zipping from one 100 foot cypress tree to the next, we also saw the Lofthaven. It is a treehouse that is also a bed and breakfast – you can stay in overnight. What a fun thing to do! We will have to do that the next time we go.

The guide pointed out many interesting sights – one of which was a group of snakes below in the creekbed!

Our experience lasted about a hour and a half.

We were all ready to do it  again!

This is a “must-do” if you are in the Austin area and your kids are adventuresome  and 8 years old or older.
