There’s no experience necessary for this fun summer adventure at Tamarack Resort, where guides will tell you all there is to know about safely navigating the eight ziplines and two suspension bridges on this zipline tour.

Along the way, admire the gorgeous mountain scenery and views of Lake Cascade. Guides will even share their knowledge of the history, flora, and fauna, of this area surrounding McCall, Idaho.
