Is Our Future in the Treetops?
Granted, there’s an intrusive, theme park feel to some canopy walks.
But they do tap a generational desire for more extreme experiences in nature. Zip-lining and rope-and-harness tree-climbing do that, too. For people with disabilities, those methods are probably more inclusive than canopy walks that require climbing flights of stairs into the treetops. One canopy walk, in Taiwan, does feature a motorized ascent. Everyone, whatever their ability, deserves to have this experience.
