An Interview With Soaring Tree Top AdventuresSoaring Tree Top Adventures was the first zipline in Durango. How did you get started?
Soaring Tree Top Adventures was actually the first zipline in the United States, and opened to guests in 2004. Denny Beggrow, the owner of Tall Timber Resort, (Soaring’s location), and his son Johnroy, were seeking a new and unique idea to entice the grown children and grown grandchildren of loyal repeat resort guests back to Tall Timber. While watching the movie ‘Medicine Man’, with the equipment they have in the movie, they thought they could create something really special in our Old-Growth Ponderosa forest. Soaring is now the largest zipline course in the world!What are the oldest and youngest zipliners to zipline with you?
Our youngest guest is typically four years old, though we ask that children weigh about 50 pounds and can operate independent of the parents. Our eldest guest was a spunky lady named Dottie, at 91 years old. She was a blast and completed the entire course, including our 1400-foot zipline span.
