Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours
Adventurers can find a thrilling adventure with Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours’ eponymous course of nine ziplines spanning a 1-mile path through open air and tree canopies. The course lies at the end of a scenic hike through mountain terrain and historic stagecoach trails. During the tours, seasoned guides point out views of the surrounding areas, which include Sangre de Cristo mountain range, the Royal Gorge plateau, and the Arkansas River. At the end of the expedition, you’ll end the excursion at the rustic Whitewater Bar & Grill, where guides will compile the day’s photos into a slide show so you can reminisce about your adventures and whether those grizzly bears were actually just large deer in bear costumes.
