HUNTER, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Thrill-seekers don’t have to go far to get their adrenaline pumping.

In the final stop of this month’s One Tank Trips excursion in New York, WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell went ziplining in Hunter Mountain in nearby Greene County.

Ziplining has seen a boost in popularity recently, but taking that first step off the landing is still a jolt for some.

“Scary as heck,” Wendy Shear told Haskell.

New York Zipline Adventure Tours runs several courses in the Catskills mountains.

“It gives everybody a chance to sort of be an adventurer in a pretty controlled environment,” owner Bradd Morse told Haskell. “We are North America’s longest, highest, fastest zipline tour.”

The course in Hunter Mountain features six ziplines and four rope bridges.

“This was incredible. It was just that first step off that I felt like I was going to die,” Shear said at the end of her excursion.

Some intrepid radio reporters even report live while ziplining.

There’s also a SkyRider tour, which puts you on a 3,200-foot cable 600 feet up. Participants can fly up to 50 miles per hour on that course.

Next Wednesday, the One Tank Trips series heads back to Connecticut.
