High Ropes Course

Clearwater Forest is home to the first Track-n-Trail High Ropes Course built in Minnesota. Our high ropes course consists of 12 unique elements on two levels (15’ & 30’) and a 300’ zip-line attached to the second level.  The High Ropes Course is designed to encourage self-growth while being supported by others who are sharing similar experiences.

Benefits of experiencing the high ropes course with your retreat group or while at camp include:

  • Being individually challenged while building team support
  • Serving groups with a wide variety of ability levels
  • Test of physical strength, stamina, agility, balance, and flexibility
  • Confronting emotional issues such as fear of falling, fear of failure, and fear of losing control

At the High Ropes Course your safety, whether physical or emotional, is our number one concern.  Our staff is caring, sensitive, experienced and qualified to make your High Ropes Course experience one to remember. Contact us about availability and pricing!
