Breathtaker Alpine Coaster
The speedy alpine coaster drops more than 400 feet in a vertical mile through a wooded forest. Riders control their own speed with handbrakes—going as fast as 28 mph—and though the course is full of twists and turns, the ride is comfortable and smooth. Pro tip: Hoot and holler on the way down to tease people who can hear you while being tugged uphill for their first ride.
Canopy Run Zip Line
What better way to see the Elk Mountain forest than from the top of it? Eight ziplines and three sky bridges connect tree-top platforms—the only of its kind in Colorado—for a 3-hour tour above the ground, reaching heights of 90 feet. The experience is guided and participants tour the entire course, rather than pieces of it. Pro tip: The course is progressive so it starts out easy and then ends with a 1,300-foot double-zipline so you can enjoy the forest ceiling with a friend.
