From zip lining to pool lounging, there is something for everyone! Here are just a few things you can do at Refreshing Mountain!

Refreshing Mountain Zip Line

The zip line at Refreshing Mountain is by far the favorite amenity. You will take an exhilarating Zip Line Canopy Tour along a series of cables and platforms through the forest. Experience wildlife in the best way possible- by joining the natural environment. Originally created to study plants and wildlife, these canopy tours are now all about having an exciting experience from a new perspective. This top attraction in Lancaster Country is great for all ages, so don’t just think the kids are doing it. Strap into your harness and ride the pulley cable, zipping from platform to platform, discovering new sights and scenes along the way! This will be one unique adventure that you won’t forget.

Refreshing Mountain Pool

If you’re planning your trip to the Historic Smithton Inn during the spring or summertime, then the pool at Refreshing Mountain will be a favorite destination to wash away all the heat and enjoy a rejuvenating swim. The near-Olympic size pool is open from Memorial Day until Labor Day and features a 30-foot water slide, diving board, wet playground, and of course, plenty of expansive deck space for sunbathing. The dress code at the Refreshing Mountain pool opts for one-piece swimsuits for females and boxer-style shorts for men, so be prepared when packing for your visit.

Other Refreshing Mountain Activities

If the zip line or pool isn’t quite your speed, then maybe you will appreciate some of the other activities offered at Refreshing Mountain. The list includes high adventures, teambuilding activities, and even meals and banquets if you’re planning an event. If you’re traveling with a group, then some of the large group activities might be fun. The options involve all sorts of skill and thrill levels, so you can choose which activities work best for you and your group.
