Customers meet at our Visitor's Center and are either transported by a 6WD Troop Carrier or van; or, they car-pool to the Aerial Adventure Park site—only about one mile away.

Those coming from Denver (3 hours from our Meeting Location) may take 285 South toward Fairplay. There will be a sign for Highway 291 about 8 miles outside of Salida; turn LEFT onto Highway 291 to Salida.

NOTE: Make sure to turn onto CR 7 in WELLSVILLE and then from there, turn onto CR 45. If you pass up this northern access to CR 45 and instead try to access CR 45 in Howard, it deads ends at the river! We are only about 1.5 miless off HIghway 45 in Wellsville.

Those coming from Canon City (1 hour from our Meeting Location) will take US 50 WEST through the towns of Texas Creek, Cotopaxi, and Howard...a route that takes you through a gorgeous canyon and alongside the Arkansas River.

You must go to WELLSVILLE, turn onto CR 7 and then onto CR 45.

If coming to our location from points further west, such as Colorado Springs (2 hours from our Meeting Location), take 115 SOUTH to US 50 WEST; travel approximately 62 miles on US 50 WEST to reach CR 7.

Customers are either transported by van or car-pooled to the zipline site, depending upon the volume of activity and time of year of the tour. In the past, we had used an open troop carrier for transport, but in an effort to keep our operation’s insurance costs within a reasonable range, we ceased using this vehicle in 2009.

It is imperative that your group check in 30 minutes prior to trip time. We depart no later then 10 mins. past the hour, and even if your dog ate your map and you thus are not present, you will miss the trip and we cannot reschedule or refund your trip fee.
