Absolutely the best ziplining in the USA and I've been to many, including here in Colorado! Heavily forested terrain and 10+ long ziplines with an experienced, friendly staff. Can't beat this place, love it! Get a group of 10 the more together for a discount...

This place has quickly become my favorite within driving distance of home! I always come back feeling exhilarated and rested. Stay in the Treehouse if you wish a perfect romantic spot or choose one of the cabins right on the river bank. Make sure you head to the Main Lodge for breakfast, its made to order, & includes well prepared...

We stayed in the treehouse cabins during a very cold January weekend. These are very unique, as they are mounted right into the hillside on a single pole that runs up through the center of the cabin and is stabilized with steel cables around the outside. This means a good wind or vigorous activity inside the cabin will make it...

Ever wanted to stay in a real treehouse? This is the place. Exceeded my expectations! Fantastic weekend getaway! Stayed in amazing REAL treehouse (temperature controlled, plumbing, jacuzzi tub, gas log fire). Did level 3 Zip line and it was fantastic. Although I am a little cautious, the guides, Jessie and Jordi, made us so comfortable and were so funny! The...

WOW!!! That is all I can say. This was the most thrilling, challenging zip line course I have ever done. We spent the weekend here, hiking and zip lining. Combined with relaxation, fine dining. This place is a little piece of Heaven. Staff was wonderful, kind, accommodating and helpful. The lodge is rustic and beautiful. I do not know why...

Had some family that came into town for a visit. I've been wanting to check out banning mills for a while and we all decided to do it. We did the zip lining for beginners and our group was really fun. Plus the instructors made it easy and safe. We stayed overnight in the treehouse which was very nice. It...

I booked a cottage at Banning Mill during a weekend visiting relatives in the area. The property is on a creek and was the previous location of several mills, hence the name. There are remnants of the old mills and associated buildings on the grounds. The cabins are very basic but clean and pretty comfortable. Don't go there for 400...

Thanks for "getting away" with us! So glad you had a great stay and wow, what some beautiful weather you had for the zipline canopy tours. Hope to see you back soon for the higher level tours. Way worth it. Don't forget the Flight of the Falcon and the Free Fall!
