The zip lines start at 11,200 feet above sea level, but to get there you ride in a monster truck or an ATV up to the zip lines, which are all between 10,000 and 11,500 feet above sea level. You’ll soar over trees and maybe even a moving train on the six zip lines. On the Big Nugget zip line, you and your friends or kids can go side-by-side-by-side.
You can just do the zip lines, or add a lunch. You can also book a roughly four-hour Rails and Zip Line tour, which includes a ride on the Leadville Colorado & Southern Railroad. Top of the Rockies Zip Line is open year-round, so you can soar over snow-covered canyons and meadows.
Top of the Rockies Zip Line is a scenic mountain drive on Hwy 91, some 14 miles south (picture higher) of Copper Mountain. Copper has lots of activities geared for families and events during the summer.
