Soar high above the Sonoran Desert near Tucson on an escorted zip line tour


THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOM QUOTED FOR AS FEW AS FOUR PASSENGERS. The Zipline EcoTour gives each person the opportunity to zip across and learn about Sonoran Desert flora and fauna while pushing the limits of their comfort zones. It includes 5 ziplines ranging in length from 400 to 1, 500 feet. We start with an easy one, then progress to the final zipline high above ground reaching a speed up to 50 mph! The last and longest run is a dual line making it possible to zip alongside a friend or loved one. I'll be the expert driver accompanying you to our designated remote location on the back side of Mt. Lemmon 5, 000 ft. above sea level. Once there your professional zipline guide will assist you with rigging, a safety lesson and accompany us on each course. The optional lunch is available on site at the shady outdoor deck of the beautiful Peppersauce Canyon Station. Allow 5 hours round trip from Tucson. You KNOW you want to try this. . .
