We want to thank you for your patronage to Earthshine. We have really enjoyed sharing this beautiful place with all of you. And so it is with sadness that we are closing the doors of Earthshine at the end of May 2018.

No More Zip?

We have officially retired our zip line. Our course was originally built in 1998, integrating live trees. After 18 years of service, we feel it's time to give them a rest. We're proud of our safety record and the many meaningful experiences we offered our guests during that time. We will still offer high adventure on our high ropes course, leap of faith, and climbing wall. Stay in touch for what's coming next as we move forward.


"Amazingly knowledgeable staff and tremendously helpful and engaging for the younger folks (pretty good for us older folk too)."
