Browns Canyon Express + Dinner Zipline Details

 

Raft, Zip, and then finish your day with a hot & hearty dinner

A big day of fun! Begin with a leisurely start at noon on our Browns Canyon Express whitewater rafting trip, a 3/4 day adventure through one of the most beautiful river canyons in the country. A proposed federal wilderness area, Browns Canyon runs through a remote canyon with no roads and little access other than the river. Your stress will dissolve as you disconnect from the business of life. You'll be challenged by the intermediate-family whitewater rapids as you gape at the stunning scenery of this remote, granite canyon.

Following your rafting trip, you'll return to our Granite Outpost around 5 pm to hit our Mountaintop zipline course and fly through the trees overlooking the Arkansas River Valley. Seven lines - including a huge 900-foot rush - make your heart leap over and over.

At the end of your double adventure, we'll feed you a hot and hearty dinner to finish your evening.  You'll sleep well after this day of fresh air, mountain views and heart-racing fun!
