Michigan's fall colors are in full glory right now.

And more and more people are discovering a new way to view all of that autumn glory: by being right up there at the top of the trees on a zipline!

Detroit Free Press travel writer Ellen Creager looked into the booming business of ziplines and adventure parks in Michigan.

Creager says there are a number of Halloween-themed zip adventures that feature glowing courses at night. She also suggests these zip tours:

  • Glacier Valley Eco Zip Tour at the Howell Nature Center: Open until the end of November 
  • The Adventure Park at West Bloomfield: Featuring hundreds of platforms and a haunted forest
  • Mt. Holiday Zip Line Adventures: Open all winter
  • Boyne Falls and Boyne Highlands Zip Line Adventure: Open all winter
  • Wildwood Rush Zip Line in Boyne City: Featuring adventuresome, hard-core zip lines
