A:It’s a strange sensation to peer at giant redwoods from above, instead of below. This nearly three-hour tour sends you soaring seven to 10 stories above the ground through the misty Arcata Community Forest in California. It’s operated by North Coast Adventure Centers, and is more hands-on and strenuous than most, at one point requiring a 25-foot tree climb through the branches of a redwood.
