Loudonville, Ohio - Tree Frog Canopy Tours opens late July, bringing a world-class canopy zip-line tour to the hills in the Mohican River valley.

Zip Ohio LLC, a Mansfield company; announce the development of a canopy tour installation 10 miles south of Loudonville.  The concept was first developed in Costa Rica in 1992.  Unlike a single cable zip-line a canopy tours employ multiple zip-line cables and suspended bridges both beginning and ending at tree based platforms.   Guests at Tree Frog Canopy Tours can expect an authentic canopy tour experience.

Bonsai Design, based in Grand Junction, Colorado is both the course designer and installer.  “We chose Bonsai Design, not only because they are a leading US zip-line installer, but because of their commitment to a sustainable design.” said Jordan Christiansen, Zip Ohio Managing Partner.  “They lead the industry in installation methods that are minimally intrusive to the trees and other natural features”.

The tour design includes two sky bridges, two rappels and seven zip-lines ranging from 145 feet to the final 1100 foot final traverse.  Total tour time will be about 21/2 hours with tours departing the welcome center every half hour.  Each tour will consist of eight guests accompanied by two guides.  The tour is not only designed to be fun but to give guests an appreciation of the biodiversity of the Mohican area.   The course is designed to exceed ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology) standards and all guides will be ACCT certified.  About 35 guide positions will be available.

Guest will wear climbing helmets and harness and be attached to zip cables via a trolley.  Guest will be tethered onto a safety point at all times.  Anyone over ten years of age that meets the basic weight and heath requirements can participate in the tour.   Additional information is available at the company’s website   Tree Frog Canopy Tours is located 9 miles south of Loudonville off of Wally Road.
