Our Mama Bear Zipline tour includes 7 ziplines, for a total of 2700 ft of line racing through the forest canopy at up to 35 miles an hour. The last 1000 ft stretch brings you out over a meadow to land on the tower above our 3-story Bear Scramble climbing wall. Your trip starts with a rustic ride up a mountain road behind the tractor, where you’ll get comfortable with the zipline safety gear and procedures on the training zipline. Our professional guides have all been trained according to Association of Challenge Course (ACCT) requirements. We can confidently offer a safe as well as invigorating experience. We also offer a Bear Scramble climbing wall. Scramble up our 3-story climbing wall to ring the bell at the top. Our wall has multiple ascent paths and accommodates two climbers at a time, so you can come with a group and race your friends to the top! Access to the wall is available in half-hour increments, giving users many chances to improve their times, or try out a trickier path up. We use a state-of-the-art auto-belay system, allowing climbers to use the wall unassisted and rappel down under supervision by our certified guides. Please note that participants must weigh between 70 and 250 lbs and be at least 8 years of age to participate in the Mama Bear Zipline tour. The Bear Scramble can accommodate guests who weigh between 50 and 300 lbs. « less

We made a reservation about 2 weeks prior to the date we wanted to go. Drove over a hour to reach the destination only to be met by.....no one. After waiting for 30 minutes we left. Tip for all future customers (from a will-never-be-a-customer): call a day or two before you try to get a zipline tour to confirm someone... More

On a recent trip to the Shenendoah in Luray with a large group of friends a few of us decided we may want to try ziplining when we saw it on our drive up. After our hike, we stopped at Bear Mountain Adventures to see if they could take us. We had no wait and within 10 minutes our group... More

My daughter,9, and I tried the zip line adventure and LOVED it!! The guides were very helpful and told you what to do. All participants got to practice on a short line before doing the longer ones. All equipment, zip lines, platforms, etc. we're pretty new and safe. We would do this again for sure!!

The staff and crew made this the most enjoyable thing I have done in a very long time. The trails and lines are well maintained and secure. The safety protocol the the guides use with each person is beyond impressive. This is a must do if you are going to be in the area, just be sure to have reservations... More

This was the first time my family experienced zip-lining, and it was great. LOCATION- on a main road (hwy 211), location marked with a giant billboard COST- average cost when compared to other locations, gave a military discount, was willing to give a refund if one of our children was too scared to complete the training zip-line ACCOMMODATIONS- had our...

On a rare Monday off together in late September we made a spur of the moment decision to check out Bear Mtn ziplines. Gave them a call about openings for the day. They assured us that we would be welcome to join the 1300 group, so off we went. After we got there they went over the waiver, safety briefing,... More

My wife and I experienced the zip lines for the first time and it was a blast. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain everything before we began. We will definitely be doing this again.

We were looking for something fun to do while staying at Skyland Resorts on the Skyline Dr. Just a half-hour drive off the mountain, we found Bear Mountain Ziplines (thanks to TripAdvisor) and had an absolute blast!

My husband and I did the ziplines and wall climbing at Bear Mountain on August 10. The staff were knowledgable and great to work with as well as being a lot of fun. It was a great experience and we'll definitely do it again, next time we'll bring more people with us. We look forward to them adding more lines.
