Lake Geneva Canopy Tours (LGCT) opened March 2011, providing year-round, sky-high adventure with a 2.5 hour Canopy Tour for Southeast Wisconsin travelers and residents. The expansive 100 acre property also became home to almost 9 miles of Arbor Trails. TreadHead Cycling, a local social bicycling group, created paths using the natural terrain in keeping with LGCT’s Green Initiatives. Fall of 2011 is when the Team Building course, with more than 15 permanent ground based challenges, was built. Designed to help school, community and corporate groups work together toward a common goal the Team Building course continues to evolve over time. The High Ropes Excursion was built in 2013. This challenge course has proven to be a great addition to the list of Eco Adventures at LGCT. With 16 different obstacles, it offers both mental and physical activities for participants of all ages.
