Zipline Adventures
Closed For The Season

Overview

This exciting adventure will take you across the Dry Gulch Valley on 7 Ziplines. Offering a hands-on experience that puts you in charge of your own gear. That is right, you will be using the equipment yourself as you move throughout the tour! Your friendly guides will be with you every step of the way; keeping an eye on your safety and telling you a bit about this unique valley as you soar through the trees.

The first 5 Ziplines take you zig-zagging through the Dry Gulch Valley.

The 6th line will lead you to the start of the first walking trail. From there, a quick 2-minute jaunt will take you to the most impressive platform. Smile for a photo! This platform showcases a view of the Columbia Valley Wetlands and the Purcell Mountain Range. 

The last line is a double zip; this means you can race a friend to the finish. It is the longest and fastest line on the tour! Once you are back on the ground, you will follow your guides back to the gear up station where you started (about a 3-minute walk).
