Ever wanted to know what it’s like to fly? This zip line tour comes pretty close.

New York Zip Line Adventure Tours in Hunter, New York, is the perfect destination for thrill seekers who want to get some wind in their hair.

The highest zip lines can reach speeds up to 50 miles per hour.

Of course, the resort also offers other zip line tours that are a little closer to the ground, but thrill seekers should always aim for the sky.

The tours are a particularly stunning destination in fall: While you’re zipping above the canopy, you can enjoy an incredible, 360-degree view that’s constantly changing. It gives a scenic hike a run for its money.

The best part is, the tours are open all year round in rain, shine — or even snow.

However, if you’re not open to a freezing cold tour above the canopy, the mountain is also a ski resort in winter.
