Situated across six acres on Watson Island, Treetop Trekking Miami, South Florida’s aerial zip line adventure park is now open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekly, Friday through Monday.
Adults and kids alike can choose from three courses including the Explorer Trek and the Thrill Seeker Trek for ages 9 and above and the Discovery Course for ages 5 and above. Courses are color-coded based on difficulty level and combined offer more than 55 elements, seven zip lines, and ample opportunities for visitors to be immersed in nature.
“We harmonize with nature so people can feel inspired and enjoy transformative experiences that heighten all the senses,” said Jean-François Couture, chief marketing officer of The Trekking Group, which designed and now operates the new park.

Once strapped into a harness and helmet, participants receive a safety orientation led by an expert guide. Treetop Trekking Miami uses a continuous safety clip system to keep guests safe and attached to the courses at all times. Climbers ascend at their own pace into the treetops where they encounter fun activities like balance bridges, Tarzan swings, swinging logs, cable crossings and zip lines that are suspended off the ground from 3 to 55 feet depending on the course. The courses include a combination of cables, wood, ropes and zip lines — all connected to wooden platforms in the trees.
When designing its newest adventure park, The Trekking Group had customer needs and the park’s tropical surroundings in mind. The Group operates 17 adventure parks across Canada and the United States including Miami and Daytona Beach.
Couture adds, “For 20 years, we have innovated in the field and continually improve the quality of our experiences as well as set the bar for safety and staff training in order to bring adventures to new heights.”
