The RAILS AND ZIP LINE TOUR: The Ultimate!
This exciting tour combines all Six sections of the 2-hour Top of the Rockies Prospector Zip Line Tour with a 2-1/2 hour ride on the Leadville Train. The tour will include a $10 per person voucher which can be used for your choice of snacks and beverages on the train, including hot dogs, sodas, beer and wine. The Historic Train Depot is located at 326 E. 7th Street, Leadville, Colorado 80461. The Zip Line Base is at 6492 Highway 91, Leadville, Co. 80461. It’s only 12 minutes from the Zip Line Base to the Train Station and vice versa. You must select your preferred date to know which train and zip line time applies.
Details on the Train Tour: Meet the Conductor and the train crew then it’s “All Aboard” for a journey back in history. Join visitors and locals on the Leadville Colorado & Southern Train as it climbs 1,000 feet above the valley floor, traveling through untouched wilderness areas of the San Isabel National Forest with some of the most spectacular views in the Rocky Mountains. Learn about the wild and crazy days of the past when Leadville was a Boom-Town with residents like Baby Doe Tabor, Molly Brown and outlaws like Doc Holiday. Hear about railroad history, ghost stories and take a tour of the Caboose and Engine. While in the town of Leadville, the highest incorporated city in North America at 10,152’, we would recommend taking a stroll down Harrison Avenue to see Victorian-era homes and shops. Enjoy a snack, beverage or meal at one of the many restaurants and make a wish to return for a longer visit on another occasion.
Details on the Zip Line Tour: Check in at our Base Camp and get ready to explore our Private 2,500-acre paradise high on the lofty slopes of Mount Arkansas, almost a 14er at 13,750’ high. The Arkansas River originates here, coming across our property as a tranquil stream which flows south, becoming a Rafter’s delight. After being fitted with the required gear and a training zip line, enjoy an exciting ride on Monster Trucks and other husky vehicles up narrow winding trails through the forest to our high mountain Yurt at 11,500’. Fly side by side on twin zip lines over vast canyons, high alpine meadows and icy mountain streams. Each of the 6 sections has 2 strong overhead cables so flyers are hooked to both upper and lower cables with a double attachment to the FULL BODY harness. Our decks are flat on the side of the mountain for easy access. Our automatic braking system makes for stress free landings. See where miners toiled to find gold in the more than 40 historic gold mines on the property. Friendly, professional guides accompany all tours from start to finish. Guests say our guys and gals are “Rock Stars”. Return to earth on the Big Nugget Zip, it’s a Triple, landing on our 100’ Sky Tower. Wide stairways and 6 spacious viewing decks are perfect for photos of Mt. Massive and Mt. Elbert to the south.
