Wilderness Zip Line

This is the ultimate scenic adventure that gives you an as-the-crow-flies experience you won’t soon forget. The adventure begins with a relaxing ride aboard the train as you meander through the green pastures of Heber Valley. If you make it past Black Jack Raven and survive the Soldier Hollow train robbery, you’ll be lucky enough to finish your gourmet boxed lunch and continue the ride along Deer Creek Reservoir to the zip line drop off. From here you are driven by van (or off-road vehicle) into the Wasatch Mountains to what is becoming known as “the most beautiful zip line in the world!” Professional guides help you into your gear, provide thorough instructions including a ground-level dry run, and lead you to the ultimate zip line high.

Ticket Price: $99

Venue Details

The Heber Valley Historic Railroad’s history began in 1899, when trains served the pioneers who first settled the valley. In the early 1970’s, the railroad became the “Heber Creeper,” a tourist passenger train operating on a seasonal basis. We now operate as a year-round, non-profit organization focused on tourism, education and the restoration of historical railroad equipment. The Heber Valley Railroad is reminiscent of the typical short-line railway that could be seen in many parts of Utah and throughout rural America during the “Golden Years” of U.S. railroading. Our goal is to help you enjoy a slice of Americana which has otherwise disappeared. The train ride, depot and atmosphere around the rail equipment, yards and buildings have been designed to be educational to young and old.
