A ropes course, located in the Humboldt Redwoods, is a challenging outdoor personal development and team building activity which consists of high and/or low elements. Low elements take place on the ground or only a few feet above the ground.  High elements are constructed in redwood trees and  require a belay for safety.
Ropes courses are referred to using several different names, including Challenge Courses, Ropes Challenge Courses, Teams Course, and Low Ropes.
