Fun and conservation go hand-in-hand at Skyline Eco-Adventures

Offering very first ziplining adventure in the country

Sponsored by Maui Visitor Bureau

Along the slopes of Haleakalā in Maui you’ll find the very first ziplining adventure in the entire country that opened back in 2002. And from the beginning, conservation and adventure have gone hand-in-hand for Skyline Eco-Adventures. Home to one of the most thrilling courses, riders will travel five ziplines and a suspension bridge, starting the ride off slowly and then ending up on a 50 mile-an-hour whirl.

Skyline Eco-Adventures conservation initiative manager Joe Imhoff is a passionate land restoration enthusiast with 10-years of experience designing, implementing, overseeing, and monitoring restoration projects. “When people come ziplining with us they see a lot of invasive species and they also see a lot a native habitat restoration and progress,” said Imhoff. “Conservation was a big part of it from the very beginning. They started planting trees and educating tourists about the importance of native habitats.” The goal is to restore the whole native forest around the zipline. Skyline Eco-Adventures has already planted over 3000 Ohia trees at the site.
