Trip Details

 

Raft the steepest, most advanced section on the Arkansas River in this Pine Creek ½ day and zip line package!  Prepare yourself for vigorous paddling, technical maneuvers, huge waves, and dramatic drops as you plunge through this aggressive run.  After conquering Pine Creek, we’ll keep the excitement going with the high speed adventure of zip lining.  This is the ultimate thrill seeker’s trip.  Our fun and highly experienced guides will help you get the most from your day.

Check in at our Granite Outpost, where our staff will provide you with free wetsuits, splash jackets, life jackets, and helmets.  After an in-depth safety orientation, you’ll head out on the water where you’ll have just enough time to warm up before the non-stop whitewater begins!  Your heart will pound as your guide shouts instructions, waves splash over the front of the boat, and you drop an astounding 200 feet in less than a mile.  When we finally take out, you’ll be ready to take a break and relax with a gourmet lunch.

After lunch, the excitement will continue on our high-adrenaline zip line tour.  A 15 minute nature hike will take you to the start of the course, where you’ll navigate seven different lines at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour.  Between zips, you’ll have time to admire the towering Collegiate Peaks and the rugged beauty of the cliffs around you.
