2 Hour Zip Line Tour
Soar through the top of the rockies on 6 ZIP LINE SECTIONS, all with DOUBLE CABLES for safety; OVER 8,000’ feet of zip lines. After check-in at the Base Camp at our partners 2,500 acre Private Preserve, board the 6 ton MONSTER TRUCK, a comfortable 4-wheel drive van, or drive a Polaris ATV up through the forest to the first zip line departure deck at 11,200 feet. The shuttle vehicle used will depend upon trail conditions and number of guests booked for the tour time.
Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive, two of the tallest peaks in North America from the deck of a Yurt. See some of the old historic patented gold mines on the property as well as possible wildlife sightings.
Experience different elements of speed, distance off the ground and terrain. Fly on One Single Line, side-by-side on 4 TWIN LINES, and side-by-side-by-side on TRIPLE LINES on THE BIG NUGGET, “THE GRAND FINALE”.
Don’t worry about braking on the course. The braking system will slow you down for a smooth, safe stop and one of your guides will be waiting on the landing deck to assist. At least two guides will accompany all tours. Stop at one of the bubbling streams in the area for cold drinks and snacks. Easy to access take-off and landing decks are flat on the side of the mountain; you don’t have to climb ladders up into trees or wooden towers. Zip Line Sections are connected by scenic downhill trails through the forest, so it’s easy walking.
Plan to spend approximately 2 to 2-1/2 hours on this exciting tour. Certain tour times provide an opportunity to see and hear the historic Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad train as it travels across our property high on the Continental Divide. One zip runs parallel to the tracks while another section runs over the tracks. Fly-overs are not guaranteed but some guests will see the train with an “eagle’s eye” view.
