1. From Durango: Narrow Gauge Railroad & Ziplining with Dining
Discover a remote location in San Juan National Forest for a ziplining adventure from Durango or Rockwood. Travel on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad in the first-class car and zipline through the trees before having lunch suspended over the Animas River. Start your day with an unforgettable journey on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and ride in the first-class car through breathtaking mountainous scenery. Traverse the canyon and admire the Animas River roaring below you, famous for featuring in numerous films. Arrive at the remote location in the heart of the forest and be welcomed by the sky rangers who'll guide you through the basics of ziplining on a brief safety introduction. Learn about sustainability and preservation of this ponderosa pine forest and fly through the trees on 27 ziplines. After ziplining look forward to a delicious, four-course gourmet lunch served on a supended platform overlooking the Animas River. There are several dining options to choose from, all cooked by skilled chefs, including a vegetarian and children's menu. It is also possible to join this activity with your family without taking part in the ziplining adventure by choosing the day guest option. Take photos of your friends or loved ones as they go through the course and admire the picturesque scenery all around you.
