What fun we had!! We went on the Wildcat Ziprider after seeing it on Chronicle TV show. You ride a chairlift a 1/4 of the way up the mountain then get off and hike a bit to get to the Ziprider. They have three chairs. You step up on the platform, sit in the harasses and they strap you in... More

We took a ride to the summit of the mountain to enjoy the nice views of Mt Washington. The staff was very friendly and the ride to the top took no longer than 15 minutes. The views from the top were amazing.

Trails are challenging, but you can also find some good beginner trails. In the summer, there are tons of places to hike and explore.... More

The view is fabulous, the workers all very nice, I could have stayed up top for hours just enjoying the view but I had to get back to the real world. maybe next time I'll... More

We came here to try the zip line. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff and went on our way. We had a relaxing ride up the mountain on the ski lift and then ventured over to the zip line area. we were greeted again by more friendly staff and then strapped in. We were then released to fly...

We were booked to eat at the Wildcat in June and arrived to a warm welcome and were invited to eat in our outside. As it was a lovely June day we choose outside. Good menu of choices to suit us all.
