What a great time to visit Lorain County! One of the most exciting new developments from over this LONG winter is the new Common Ground Zipline Canopy Tour.
Fly through the trees on an experience that is memorable, exhilarating and definitely worth repeating with Common Ground’s new Zipline Canopy Tour. As northern Ohio’s only world-class canopy tour, this zipline travels through all types of terrain including beautiful meadows and the steep valley walls of the beautiful Vermilion River Valley. It features a combination of fast ziplines, soaring aerial bridges, aerial staircases, foot paths, rappel stations and uncommon views of the natural landscape. The longest zipline is roughly 850 feet. Each guided tour will be 2.5 to 3 hours long and will feature information about the land, its inhabitants and its resources.
The Canopy Tour is scheduled to open mid-June. Tickets are $85 per person. Participants must be at least 10 years old and weigh between 70 and 250 pounds. Online reservations will be available on the Common Ground website beginning in late April. Common Ground is located 5 miles west of Oberlin on Baird Road. Common Ground also offers a ropes course.
More information will become available on the Common Ground website within the next few weeks. Make it a weekend — Common Ground is just 20 minutes from 5 Corners Bed & Breakfast plus enjoy all there is to see and do including the Backroads & Beaches Mulit-Sport Trail (biking, rollerblading, running) and the Vermilion-Lorain Water Trail (kayaking and paddleboarding). Lorain County is a fantastic place to escape reality for a day, a long weekend or even a week! There is truly something for everyone…from zipping through the trees to soaking up rays on a sandy beach. Enjoy fantastic restaurants, fine wines and micro-brews. Take in the beauty of fine art and the rustic appeal of a unique flea market find. Its all right here in Lorain County.
