Forget the dinky new zip line out in Venice Beach. Navitat Canopy Adventures has the real tree-skimming experience in the heart of the San Bernardino Mountains. Located at the eastern edge of Los Angeles County, Navitat's Wrightwood zip line and rappelling experience offers adventure-seekers 10 different zips, descents and cable bridges, more than a mile above sea level. Zip between platforms ecologically placed among living Jeffrey pines, soar over canyons 300 feet deep, or leap into the open air with a series of free-fall rappels, then settle in for a final zip line, which is nearly a third of a mile long. Prices start at less than $100, and you won't have to share the platforms with any of those Venice Beach tourists. 6047 Park Drive, Wrightwood. (760) 249-9990, —Farley Elliott
