Summer Zip Line Tours

Summer tours are open from May 15 to October 15

The Standard Two-Hour PROSPECTOR ZIP LINE TOUR

A true Colorado Back Country Adventure.

OPEN NOW, 6 ZIP LINE SECTIONS, all with DOUBLE CABLES for safety; OVER 8,000’ feet of zip lines at the Top of the Rocky Mountains. After check-in at the Base Camp at our 2,500 acre Private Preserve, board the 6 ton MONSTER TRUCK, a comfortable 4-wheel drive van up 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 our 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 our course. Our 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.

After completing zip line #5, it’s time for THE BIG NUGGET. Glide down from the NEW OBSERVATION DECK on three thrilling zip lines, past the rocky cliffs on long 850’ cables. Land side-by-side-by-side on our beautiful 100’ tall SKY TOWER. Stop and take photos on the spacious landings as you descend to base Camp on wide stairways. Enjoy magnificent views of the 14ers, Mount Massive and Mount Elbert to the south, and our mountain, Mount Arkansas (an almost “Fourteener”), overlooking the Base Camp.

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.
We are the only zip line in the world to fly over a running Train. Not available after October 4th
Photo Service is on site for all tours.

The Five Hour RAILS AND ZIP LINE TOUR

The Ultimate!

Check in at the Base Camp then receive your voucher to ride on the Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad. Leave your car in our parking lot then it’s all aboard our shuttle to the Railroad Station in Leadville where you’ll meet the engineer and train crew for a journey back in history. Join visitors and locals as the train climbs 1,000 feet above the valley floor, traveling through untouched wilderness areas with some of the most spectacular views in the Rocky Mountains, including possible views of zip liners gliding overhead. When you reach our Private Preserve high on the Continental Divide, the train will stop at about 11,000’ of altitude. Guides will be waiting to escort guests from the train to our cozy high mountain yurt where a hearty box lunch prepared by a Leadville Restaurant will be served. After flight school and a training zip line, guests will step off the first deck at 11,500’ to soar over vast canyons, high alpine meadows and bubbling brooks. Our rugged sturdy decks are flat on the mountainside, providing easy access, and slant slightly downward. Two professional zip line guides will accompany flyers during the tour, providing friendly help and assistance in all aspects of the experience. See where miners toiled to find gold in more than 40 historic gold mining claims on the property. At the end of the tour, guests return to base camp and their vehicles.
