Writer Arthur Plotnik once called the ponderosa pine “a Clint Eastwood of a tree.” These massive pines are rugged, lean, and hearty, living 500 years or more. Ironically, these resilient trees have a softer side. The bark of a ponderosa smells like butterscotch (yes, seriously!). It is easy to find ponderosa pines dotting the landscape, but McCall has a completely unique way to appreciate these majestic trees…by zip lining into one!

If you are after a really unique way to see the sights, there are two great options to zip through the trees:

Tamarack Resort Zipline Adventure

Tamarack’s thrilling, action-packed zipline tour includes eight zip lines and two suspension bridges covering 3,500 feet of stunning mountain terrain. Fly over creeks, canyons, and forest while enjoying stunning views of Lake Cascade and the valley below.

The pièce de résistance of the tour is zipping onto a platform built around a ponderosa pine. The circular structure soars about 100 feet off of the ground and affords spectacular views along with a big adrenaline rush! Once on the platform, you can feel the movement of the tree. We will admit the sensation is a bit out of this world, but don’t worry, the expert guides make sure you are harnessed securely at all times. After zipping into the tree, a quick walk around the platform and you are all set to zip right back out.

Zipline Tours are available seven days a week during the summer season. The morning tour departs at 9am and 10am and the afternoon tour departs at 1pm and 2pm.
