Ziplines at Pacific Crest

Have any of you ever been Ziplining? I have! Just last week in fact. I was invited [so kindly] by Ziplines at Pacific Crest, (honestly) it is the best Ziplining company and most awesome staff in the world! Today, I am going to explain what I loved about it, and guide you through what is going to happen when you visit them!

Firstly, they are located in Southern California, in Wrightwood to be exact. For those of you who snowboard or ski, you have definitely heard of the place, or have been there before. Wrightwood is home to the famous Mountain High Resort! Well, for those of you who don’t ski or snowboard, but still want a little adrenaline in your life, Ziplines at Pacific Crest is an absolute must try! Actually, I recommend it to everyone, whether you’re an adrenaline junky or a homebody that wants a little action, they have packages that entail the best of both worlds. If you opt in for the “crazier” package, you will find yourself atop huge Jeffrey Pines, getting clipped onto a thick wire, and zooming through the forest at speeds up to 60 mph! Yep, you read that right! You’ll feel like a mix between Tarzan and Speedy Gonzalez, if that helps you imagine yourself having the time of your life a little better.

The drive up there was insanely georgeous; changing of the colors as we increased our elevation.

 

Let The Adventure Begin

Once you get there, you will fill out any necessary paperwork that you didn’t already fill out online, and get suited up. This only takes about 15 minutes, so don’t get too antsy. I got the Canopy Tour, which included 9 Ziplines, 2 Rappels, and 3 Bridges. I highly recommend this one, since it gives you a lotta bit of everything. In total, it lasted 3.5 hours, which was actually the perfect amount of time. Not short enough to want to beg for more, but not overly long to where you are too exhausted. Just right. Anyways, from there, you load up into a sweet 4×4 van that off-roads you up towards the first zipline. This part is another reason why I really recommend Ziplines at Pacific Crest; it just kinda gets your heart racing and ensures the fun starts right off the bat! Once you get out of the van, there is a very short walk to the first zipline, where the real fun begins.

The first few lines are small enough to get you used to it, yet easily fast enough to get your heart racing! From there, it only gets more and more fun! You will rappel down from super high trees, walk across rope and wood bridges, zip from tree to tree and just really have the time of your life. On the 60 mph one, it’s not only about speed. You get some of the most beautiful views of the forest, wildlife, shrubbery, and mountains! I know I have already said it, but it is worth saying again – If you want to get out of the house, are into the outdoors, or just want to have a great time, head on over to Ziplines at Pacific Crest’s website and book a trip! You will be more than glad you did.

 

 

So What Do I Wear?

It was the middle of Fall by the time we made our way out there, meaning it was a tad bit chilly… well for me! I’m a Southern California native so anything below 70 degrees and I’m freezing. Brrrrrr!

The weather there was a brisk 65 degrees (the high of the day). I chose to wear workout attire as it is easier to manuver in and I could easily layer it if need be. I’m glad I wore pants and brought a light jacket with me. We were constantly moving so you do tend to warm up a little, but for me it still wasn’t enough. lol Cody was over there braving this weather in shorts and a regular t-shirt… never saying it was brisk once. He’s more of a Winter person, as I prefer the Summer heat. ha,ha!
