Located in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, Ramblewild is Feronia Forests’ first tree-to-tree adventure destination. Aerial parks are a new outdoor activity in and amongst the trees that offer excitement, challenge, and personal growth for families and adventurists of all kinds.

Feronia works with experienced foresters and ecosystem specialists to take an innovative approach to forestry. They strategically postpone the harvesting of trees to maximize investment returns. While the trees grow, they creatively develop sustainable, revenue-generating offerings within and from the forests: recreational destinations such as Ramblewild; the harvesting of maple sap for the production of maple water (Vertical Water) and maple syrup (Mission: Maple); harvesting foods and medicinal plants that grow naturally in the forest; and hosting renewable energy facilities. Their goal is to nurture the greatest long-term value of each forest to the local communities, the environment and their investors. They call this Sustainable Full Forestry™.

At Ramblewild, the focal point is a central wooden platform about ten feet above ground from which eight aerial obstacle courses originate, meandering from tree to tree at various heights through the forest. Each course consists of 15-17 elements (high wires, zip lines, balancing logs, rope ladders, cargo nets, suspended bridges, etc.) that meander through a pristine hemlock forest. Our tree-to-tree challenge courses are designed to have a profound impact on visitors’ self-confidence and happiness.

Engagement with the environment is the first step for people to begin caring about and supporting it: our mission is to bring people back to the forest and to develop an understanding, appreciation and respect for nature in everyone.
