Browns Canyon Sizzler + Zipline 2 Day Trip Details

Combine and save! Enjoy the best of Browns Canyon with the best of our ziplining in two action-packed days!

Start your adventure on day 1 on America's favorite stretch of whitewater. Browns Canyon shows you Colorado beauty at its best as it runs through a proposed federal wilderness area, so don’t forget to keep an eye out for local bird life and other wildlife! A great section for all ages and experience levels, Browns Canyon delivers a mix of exhilarating whitewater and stunning scenery, and you'll get to experience the entire canyon with a full day of rafting. You'll break mid-trip for a riverside, hot chicken fajita lunch. Now is a great chance to kick back and take in the jaw-dropping views of the Collegiate Range, a chain of 14,000 foot mountains looming out to the west.

After returning to our Granite Outpost, enjoy a hot, delicious dinner and a evening under the stars at the AVA Campground.

Start the next day with a quick breakfast before taking your next adventure: a zipline tour. Get ready for one of the most exciting and popular Colorado mountain summer adventures - ziplining! Our zipline course is integrated into the wooded and craggy surroundings of our mountainous 44-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 at speeds of up to 30 mph. You'll tackle 7 ziplines - including a 900-foot span from rock face to treetop - plus other elements like swinging bridges and hanging staircases. Minimum age 7, minimum weight 50 lbs and maximum weight 250 lbs.
