About the acrobatic course
The ropes course was built a few years ago at Hieronymus Park in Hamilton, next to the Bitterroot River Inn. Since then, BEAR has used it as part of its offerings for young people in the community. They provide peer mentors for all high school students in the Valley, focusing on outdoor activities. Their official goal is “to inspire young people to connect to their own potential, their community and the landscape through experiential and outdoor adventure programs”.
