    The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring

    Zipline and climb your way through the trees at the Adventure Park in Sandy Spring, Maryland, billed as the largest man-made outdoor climbing adventure in the world.

    The park's equipped with 190 unique challenges, 29 zip lines and 13 trails ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced.

    Pick your skill level and move from platform to platform high in the trees as you zipline, traverse rope bridges, climb, walk tightropes and more. Don't get too nervous, though -- admission includes that all-important harness, a pair of gloves and a 30-minute safety training session.

    Besides the 13 main trails, you'll also find two smaller adventures: the Monkey Grove is 10 trees covered in climbing rocks while the Labyrinth is an enclosed network of bridges and stairs to climb and explore.

    You can also explore the trails at night, as they're illuminated by LED lights.

    Tickets for the main park get you three hours of climbing; tickets are sold until the last two hours before closing. You can climb for one hour in The Monkey Grove and The Labyrinth.

    Groups will need to reserve tickets at least two weeks in advance.

    The park is located 45 minutes away from downtown D.C. at the Sandy Spring Friends School (16701 Norwood Road, Sandy Spring, Maryland).
