Whether it’s the exhilarating feeling of flying, the adrenaline rush, fast speeds, aerial views, the excitement of trying a new experience, or overcoming a fear, people all flock to ziplining for different reasons. Colorado is no stranger to zip lines with several dozen scattered across the Front Range and into the Rocky Mountains. With over 300 days of sunshine, many zip line outfitters in Colorado are open year-round.
The oldest zip line courses in the state include Captain Zipline and Lost Canyon Zipline Tour located near Salida and Soaring Tree Top Adventures in Durango all opened in 2005. If you are looking for the most exhilarating experience, the “Extreme Course” at Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours offers 11 zip lines and boasts having the fastest in North America, reaching speeds of 60 miles per hour!
