The Mica Peak area above Liberty Lake, a former moonshine hotspot turned hiking and mountain biking mecca, will be getting a new recreational attraction come late May when Mica Moon Zip Tours begins offering zipline canopy tours on around 300 acres of private forest land with big mountain views. The zipline tours, which kick off Memorial Day weekend, will include the thrills of a traditional zipline along with a historical experience that includes visits to remnants of old moonshine camps. The tours will cater to thrill seekers, families and history buffs. The two-and-a-half-hour tours will eventually include as many as eight zips up to 75 feet above the forest floor that will send guests flying through the air over the trees at up to 45 miles per hour. The longest zip is in the 1,500 length range, with exceptional views of the Spokane Valley along the way.

“Our tour is the perfect combination of an intimate canopy tour like those we have done in the rainforests of Belize and higher octane zips with amazing views like those outside Las Vegas or in Hawaii,” says Mica Moon founder Rik Stewart. “What I love is the fact that we connect with both families looking for an educational bonding experience in beautiful natural settings and thrill seekers and bucket listers who want to test their comfort zones a bit,” he says. “Even the most timid of guests, with the help of our guides, will have developed the confidence to enjoy the longer and higher zips at the end of the tour.”

Guests will check in at the Mica Moon Zip Tours office at the Liberty Lake Portal building (23402 E. Mission Ave., Suite 100) before hopping into a van shuttle to the base of the mountain for the final off-road vehicle ride to the start of the tour. More info: Micamoon.com. //
