Our Cliffside Zipline, located in Idaho Springs, just 30 minutes west of downtown Denver, makes for a perfect half-day (up to 3 hour tour) getaway into the mountains. Though our 9-acre property is set back only a quarter mile from Interstate 70, you’ll feel like you’re in the midst of Colorado’s beautiful wilderness. If the zipline doesn’t take your breath away, the views sure will!
With expansive mountain vistas and exhilarating ziplines through a canopy of trees, Colorado Zipline’s Cliffside Zipline course was voted Best Zipline Tour of the Rockies. This 6-line course is built into the natural area along the cliffside in Idaho Springs and includes features such as suspended bridges, and a Dual Race zip to challenge your friends on. Begin your adventure at our Idaho Springs Outpost, where you’ll check in, get equipped with your zipline gear, and undergo a safety briefing. You’ll then ride our zip truck to the top of the mountainside, with a short hike to the first platform. All our platforms, numbered 1 to 6, are built into the natural environment, making for an exciting and scenic adventure!
