Against the backdrop of the stunning Dartmoor, Go Ape Haldon Forest is as far south as we venture. Your adventure though is definitely northwards as you scale the heights of the treetops. A great location for thrill seekers and family adventurers with hilltop to hilltop zip wires and daring high level crossings. You may be deep in the forest but the 360-degree views from your treetop vantage point are spectacular.

Go Ape Haldon is the gateway to fun and adventure on the moors. You’ll find us 15-minutes from Exeter nestled in 3,500-acres of woodland. Whether sat on top of a tree or moving between sites on the course you’ll get to appreciate the beauty of the Dartmoor landscape.

With its many walking and cycling trails it’s a busy park, popular with mountain bikers and walking groups. Take your pick from four walking trails and five high-adrenaline cycling trails. Bike hire is available at the site.

There are a children’s play area and a number of trails to entice the children into the forest including the Discovery Trail which has lots of fun features, regular resting points and the promise of stunning views along the Jurassic Coast. If the younger members of your group are new to two wheels, it’s also a great trail for beginner cyclists.

Make a day of it – there are a number of picnic areas or grab a drink and bite to eat in the Ridge Café.

  • Great day out despite the rain! Lovely friendly staff. Only criticism is it needs more signage to Go Ape as difficult to find when in the car park


  • We all had a great time completing the junior course; two adults and a 9 year old. The high courses were fun and a little challenging, well for Mum anyway (we're not quite ready for the big course yet)! If only you could go up and down the zip wire all session the 9 year old would have been even more happy!! All the staff members were very polite with a good sense of humour. We will definately be back as a family and have also booked for a birthday party. Highly recommended!


  • Was late for our booking due to bad weather and traffic but on arrival Craig and his colleagues were very helpful and understanding, although we had been to Leeds castle induction was very good overall a great morning thanks

  • We had a great time for our daughter's 11th birthday. We did the treetop loved it and were whizzing round. Me and my husband were a bit wobbly and he's not a massive fan of heights but still managed to have fun.


  • Excellent value for money
