Located at 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott, Zip Adventures is the only place in the state of Colorado where you can zip 30 miles for every hour over a jagged canyon while enjoying the beautiful trees, raging rivers, rugged rock cliffs and pristine mountains.

Open from May to December, Zip Adventures offers six different ziplines ranging between 150 ft and 1000 ft over the Colorado canyon, as well as six wheel Swiss Army Penzgauer. You will surely enjoy soaring 100 ft to 200 ft above the Alkali Canyon. You will be amazed as the walls of the canyon drop out from beneath you, showing the spectacular beauty of the floor of the canyon.

The tour, which involves easy to moderate hiking, will take about two to two-and-a-half hours. Each group, which consists of over 12 persons, is guided by two trained guides. You can choose to join a group or gather your own group for a team building activities.

The tour starts with a thorough, informative briefing of the tour and gear. Then, you will board the Penzgauer four wheel drive for a five-minute drive to the canyon.
