Hiking & Mountain Biking
Lake Geneva Canopy Tours has almost 9 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails offering beginner, intermediate & expert levels. The Arbor Trails single track winds through the forest and features plenty of obstacles on the intermediate and expert level routes which include ladder bridges, jumps, and switchbacks that make it a regional favorite.
The Arbor Trails are unpaved and built around the trees using the natural topography creating the various levels of difficulty. Open year-round, snowshoeing is a popular activity in the winter months.
