Fun in the great outdoors — Welcome to the largest man-made outdoor climbing adventure in the world!
There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring! Located in the trees at the Sandy Spring Friends School, you will find our amazing Aerial Forest Park. This is THE Maryland Adventure Park to experience adventure in The Trees on your own or with friends, family and parties — ages five to adult.
Look up — You’ll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. Each bridge presents a different challenge of how to get to the next platform. A series of bridges form “aerial trails” throughout the forest.
Relax — You don’t have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan! Choose from thirteen different color-coded trails, from “beginner” (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).
Climb with Confidence — You will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb. Our double-connected, “always-locked-on” climbing system helps keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. The trails are intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Our Park Guides are available to assist throughout your visit.
The Adventure Forest
With 13 Trails, 29 zip lines, 6 difficulty levels, and almost 200 challenge bridges, The Adventure Forest is the largest forest climbing park in the nation.
At the heart of the park is the main platform. Think of it like the top of a ski mountain. There is a ladder leading to the top of the platform. Once on the main platform, there are 13 separate trails heading off and up into the tree tops. Each is color coded indicating the difficulty of the trail. Like a ski mountain, each climber chooses their own level of challenge.
