Junior Park Courses at TreeRunner

At TreeRunner West Bloomfield, the Junior Park offers trails, obstacles as well as zip lines for younger climbers aged 4 to 7. The course is 2-3 feet off the ground, ideal for little ones to climb and zip. Parents supervise with a 1:1 adult-to-child ratio. Admission is free for non-climbing chaperones.

The Aerial Courses at TreeRunner in West Bloomfield

The Aerial Courses are designed for climbers ages six and older. Children should have at least a 6-foot reach, or they must climb with an adult. It is important to note they do have a weight limit of 265 pounds as well as a height limit of 6’4″. The trails range in difficulty from beginner to expert.

The six beginner courses are between 5 feet and 15 feet off the ground. These trails are stable and therefore easy for the first-time climber and include the purple and yellow trails. The Intermediate (green) courses introduce swinging obstacles while incorporating stationary elements too. The four green courses contain elements that range from 20 to 35 feet in the air.

The two blue courses are ranked advanced and also present a significant increase in physical challenge. The levels requires strong upper and lower body strength to complete. The advanced elements are suspended at least 35 feet in the air up to 45 feet. The two black courses are for the more physically fit, presenting an intense physical (and mental) challenge. The two expert courses have elements that range from 30 to 40 feet in the air.

Please note that it is best to book ahead, but they do accept walk-ins as long as they have the equipment. Wear closed toed shoes and athletic clothing. Bring gloves or buy a pair when you get there. Come prepared for a challenge and a fun time.
