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.

It doesn't look like much when you show up. Pretty much a parking lot and a trailer, but the course is very well constructed and each zipline is a nice long run. My 8 year old who was barely heavy enough, loved it and wanted to do it again. It's not inexpensive, but worth the trip if visiting Luray. Instructors... More

We celebrated my husband's 31st birthday in Luray and started our weekend with ziplining at Bear Mountain! We had a private tour since if was off-season (early March) and had a great time. Our guides were personable, friendly and ensured we were enjoying ourselves. It took about an hour for the two of us to complete the 8 ziplines. Great... More

We did the zip line the day after seeing the Caverns. This was a great experience for ourselves and our two boys. After you are harnessed up a tractor will pull you up the mountain in a long wagon. The safety briefing is to the point, and emphasizes what you need to know, Then you zip from tree to tree.... More

Had a blast on ropes course. Staff was very helpful made you feel very safe. What a great confidence builder for young kids/ anyone afraid of heights. My 5 year old loved it after she got going. Fun and rewarding. I suggest this place to anyone in the area.

As a first-time zip liner, not in the best shape of my life, I was a wee bit concerned, but we had a blast! Our guide Katie was exuberant, challenging everyone to go fast and have fun. Our other guide, Melissa, was the mother bear, making sure that everyone felt safe, secure, and confident. Together, they made a perfect pair,... More
