Go ahead, get carried away...at Bear Mountain Ziplines in Luray, VA. 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.

(5/28/2015) We had a great time! The staff was patient and friendly and dedicated to making us feel comfortable with the ride. There was always someone at both ends of the zip line to make sure we were ready and help out. Our group consisted of two couples ranging in age from 61 to 67 yrs old. They even provided... More

I enjoyed doing the zipline tour at Bear Mountain. I was staying at Yogi Bear's campground next door so the location was incredibly convenient. The ziplines got progressively more intense and were all fun. I liked it a lot, but chose not to return this year as the cost seemed pretty high. $75 per person to participate. With a family...

Went zip lining this morning and had a fantastic time. Katie and Austin were perfect guides for our group of 7 ranging from age 9 to 47. It was great for everyone. 7 fun lines and a truck ride up to the first line. I highly recommend Bear Mountain Zip lining!

My 6 1/2 year old granddaughter absolutely loved her time there. Price was incredibly reasonable ($20) for an hour for her to do a variety of things. Lots of safety and great supervision/instruction. We'll be returning, for sure.

We all had fun here. The staff/ owners are friendly patient and fun and the course is a perfect length. Definitely worth a try, I would love to do this in the Autumn. The last wire is the best!

Our first time zip lining was a great experience thanks to the staff at Bear Mountain zip line. Our guides, Tyler and Katie were very supportive and helpful! Our 13 year old grandson was a little nervous at first but these two put him at ease and now we are all ready to go again!! Well worth the money spent!!!

This zipline is top notch! It is canopy tour meaning you do not climb from zipline to zipline. It is one long connected zipline where you zip platform to platform. The guides were professional and friendly and always made you feel secure. I will say the pricing is a little higher than other zipline outfits I have visited, but with... More
