About the Tour

After check-in at the Base Camp at our 2,500 acre Private Preserve on the slopes of Mt. Arkansas, an almost “Fourteener”. Board the 6 ton MONSTER TRUCK or drive a Polaris ATV up through the forest to the first zip line departure platform at 11,200 feet. Shuttle vehicle will depend upon number of guests booked for the tour time. Enjoy spectacular alpine views from the deck of our cozy Yurt. See some of the old historic patented gold mines on the property as well as possible wildlife. Fly side by side on TWIN LINES on 4 sections experiencing different elements of speed, distance off the ground, and terrain. Don’t worry about braking on our course. You don’t have to grab hold of an overhead brake to slow down. Our ZBrakes slow you down for a smooth, safe stop and one of your guides is there to assist. Stop at one of the bubbling streams in the area for cold drinks and snacks. A shuttle vehicle will return you to Base Camp at the end of your tour. Photo Service is available on site.
