*The Diversity Trail requires some jumping and balance and coordination to move from swing from swing to swing.  All of this takes place between 1-3 feet off the ground.  Dressing in comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes is key.

*The Giant Swing requires climbing up an A-frame ladder with a full-body harness on and the getting clipped into a cable where you will be suspended 5 feet off the ground at the lowest spot.  The group will then work as a team to hoist the participant up as high as they would like to swing from (35 feet max.).
