To walk high above Californian Redwoods was a real treat. The swinging paths and walkways were awesome. It was quiet at 4pm very few people. A stunning experience.

Can't rave about how much fun this was, and I'm afraid of heights. Feel very safe the whole time and great guides. The thrill of speeding through the trees is not to be missed.
