History

Lake Geneva Canopy Tours opened March 2011, providing year-round, sky-high adventure for Southeast Wisconsin travelers and residents. The almost 9 miles of hiking and biking trails were constructed by TreadHead Cycling, a local social bicycling group in Lake Geneva. The Team Building course was completed in the fall of 2011, with more than 15 permanent ground based challenges designed to help school, community, and corporate groups work together toward a common goal.
