Ramblewild Adventure Park#10 in Best Things To Do in The Berkshires
The Berkshires offers plenty of hiking opportunities to get your bearings on the ground, but Ramblewild Adventure Park enables visitors to experience the Massachusetts mountains from an entirely different altitude. This treetop adventure course challenges outdoor adventurers and beginners alike as they climb and weave through the obstacles in the hemlock groves of Feronia Forest. Ropes, ladders, bridges, swings and zip lines are among the 130 elements across the eight different routes that await visitors 45 feet above the forest floor. Along with its aerial park, Ramblewild also offers hiking trails and snowshoeing.
Previous travelers visiting Ramblewild as a family say the aerial course is among the best things to do in the Berkshires. Reviewers credit the encouraging staff and breathtaking views as prime reasons to plan a trip. Visitors also appreciate the range of courses for all skill levels. Reviewers say the 3 1/2-hour timeslot enables visitors to try out a handful of courses and take in the landscape from different parts of the forest, all while getting a great workout.
