Combine the non-stop action of a white water trip through thrilling Gauntlet with an exhilarating experience through the trees on a fun-filled Colorado zip line tour. Enjoy the best advanced whitewater and the thrill of ziplining into two action-packed days! Pine Creek is the steepest, most technical, and most continuous section of whitewater on the entire Arkansas River. Start your adventure on day 1 getting warmed up in the beautiful Granite Gorge before the river narrows to half its width and drops 200 feet in the course of a single rapid. You barely have time to catch your breath before starting on the notorious Numbers. We’ll break for a hot chicken fajita lunch.
After the rafting trip, head to the AVA Cabins for a delicious dinner and night under the stars. Start off day 2 with a nice breakfast before a wild mountaintop zipline tour! Our zipline course is integrated into the wooded and craggy surroundings of our mountainous 43-acre Gold Camp property. Take in the views of snow-capped peaks and the Arkansas River as you zip from cliff to cliff between the pine and aspen trees.
