The Treetop Tour starts with a gentle ground take-off to put you in the trees. If you’ve never been with us before, we recommend this adventure. It’s a great introduction to ziplining, or for those looking to explore the forest canopy up close and personal. Perfect for families, beginners and thrillseekers alike. Ziplines range from 250 to 1,000 feet long. You’ll zip from tree to tree on 10′ platforms reaching heights of 60′ off the forest floor, and zip ground to ground. The Treetop Tour has 5 ziplines and takes about 2 hours to complete with a group of 13, including a shuttle from our office on Main Street and an exciting Off-Road ride up to the start of the course.
The Timberline Tour is a bit more of a thrill ride with longer, higher & faster lines than the Treetop Tour, along with extended lines and improvements in 2023. It’s recommended for guests who have ziplined before or enthusiastic first-timers and adrenaline junkies as it begins from Treewalk Village, 60′ off the ground! This first step can be intimidating for those who may be sensitive to heights. While the Treetop Tour zips you through the forest, the Timberline zips you over the forest and provides some spectacular views along the way. There are dual or side-by-side ziplines to race your friends, sky bridges, and extreme tree platforms. It includes 5 separate ziplines including 2 side-by-side ziplines, the longest being 1600′ long and 200′ off the ground, crossing valley after valley, with 2 suspended bridges. This course takes 2½ hours to complete with a group of 13, including a shuttle from our office on Main Street and an exciting Off-Road ride up to the start of the course.
SUPER SkyRider Tour is a bit more physically challenging. It includes faster, longer, and higher ziplines, a 30’ ladder climb to the next zipline departure, and various technical bridges. 8 ziplines, 6 suspension bridges, and 2 ladder climbs. This is recommended for experienced zipliners only. There are 2 “zap-lines” a twist on the traditional zipline where it’s up to you to get to the other side. This is our most EXTREME tour and will be physically demanding for some people.
If you’ve been with us before and are ready for the next step in the journey, the SUPER SkyRider is it! This tour takes approximately 3 hours with a group of 13 including a shuttle from our office on Main Street and an exciting Off-Road ride up to the start of the course.
Tours meet in our office at 41 Main Street in Lincoln where our staff will orient you to your equipment and accompany you to the trailhead in our shuttle. Alpine Adventure’s zipline tours are located on a 1700′ hilltop called Barron Mountain, consisting of 300 private acres just 10 minutes south of Loon Mountain and Franconia Notch in the White Mountains.
Alpine Adventures inspects its zipline courses and trucks daily. The facility is inspected by a 3rd party and ACCT regulations annually. Cables are ½” aircraft grade steel that will hold 23,000 lbs, attached to trees and poles that are guy-wired and cemented to the ground, “where they will turn into fossils in 3000 years,” one engineer stated, attesting to its strength and durability. Guests glide through the air using a pulley, climbing harness, and dual lanyards, conforming and exceeding ACCT standards for load capacity.
Tour duration depends on the course selected and how many are in your group, usually 2-3 hours from start to finish. See tour descriptions. All tours start with welcoming you at our office on Main Street, a gear up session & a short shuttle and Off-Road Adventure ride in our 6×6 Pinzgauers to the top of the course.
