2020 Update: This trip is currently available Wednesday-Sunday.
Voted the Best Zipline Tour in the Rockies last year, the Cliffside Zipline in Idaho Springs is just 30 minutes from Denver or 1 hour from Summit County, Boulder or Winter Park. You’ll find big mountain views for miles, a beautiful short hike, and exciting drops with zooming lines through the treetops.
You’ll start at our Idaho Springs Outpost, where you’ll check in, receive your zipline gear and get the zipline safety rundown. We then drive you most of the way up the mountainside of our 9-acre property. You’ll get to the very top with a 10-minute hike to platform #1. All of our platforms – #1 through #6 – are built into natural cliffs and treetops. We are not the zipline course right on the interstate! Although our Outpost is conveniently just 1/4 mile from I-70, you feel a world away with the undeveloped mountain forest and big drops where our zipline tours take place.
You’ll have everything you need for your Cliffside Zipline adventure with AVA. Our experienced guides will hook you up with some great equipment, and you can take a look at our suggested items and gear lists so you know what to pack the day of your trip.
My eight year old daughter and I did the Idaho Springs zipline adventure. We both LOVED it! She zipped tandem with Shawn and was fearless with him. He made her, and me, feel comfortable and ready to try this new adventure. My daughter loved it so much that she now wants to be a zip liner for Halloween! ????. Thank you for a wonderful adventure!!
We went on the 4:00 PM zip line with Elise and Peebs. Honestly, this was an amazing experience not only because the course is so well designed but our guides were so polite and informative. Both Peebs and Elise had a way of explaining the safety procedures each time in a fun and positive way. The course is built on the mountain so you are not climbing towers to zip... you are going from the top to the bottom via zip and great "bridges". Thank you.
Our group had a great time! Sunshine and Emily were our guides and they were awesome working with everyone. We mostly scaled the side of the mountain and in between there were some bridges to cross. You jump off a bridge and safely land onto a platform and you will scale down the mountain on a pulley system. After all this you will zip line all the way back to their office. We had a great time and it's fun to test yourself and the whole time you are enjoying the view of the city and the near by mountains.
