Navitat Canopy Adventure lets you soar through nature

June 12, 2012 12:00:00 AM PDT
You may think you'd have to travel far to get a gravity-defying experience, but the people Navitat Canopy Adventure in Wrightwood live for such thrills and can be found just an hour outside of downtown L.A.

The Navitat Canopy Adventure offers its visitors a bird's eye view of the San Gabriel Mountains with its various activities like zip lining, the longest of which sails for a quarter of a mile and takes you about 300 feet off the ground -- the equivalent of a 30 story building.

But Navitat Canopy Adventures is much more than a zip line course. There are three rappels, three sky ridges and one set of sky stairs. And if that isn't enough heart pumping action for you, don't worry. Navitat even has a free fall device called True Blue.

Clearly, there are plenty of adrenaline-pumping opportunities. The thrills are accompanied by lots of time to soak in your surroundings with canopy tours, an interpretive experience that also teaches you about the environment.

Navitat aims to combine nature and adventure, and you might feel just like a Red-tailed hawk as you glide through the forest.
