Fall Foliage at Durango’s Best Zipline Course

It’s that time of year, kids are back in a group of people standing next to a tree in a forestschool, and life has settled down as the summer wanes on. The air is getting cooler, and Autumn is around the corner. One of the cornerstones of the Autumnal season is the beautiful fall foliage. During this time of year, trees go into a deep sleep, where winter is right around the corner. One of nature’s most spectacular productions is the foliage from Aspen Groves.

Leaf peeping is a must-do bucket list item as far as things to do in Durango. The Durango area is home to a number of Aspen Groves; with each grove being one living organism. Each Aspen tree is interconnected from an extensive underground root system. Even before an Aspen trunk appears, its roots may lay dormant for many years. Hence, each grove is in constant communication and decides at one time when to change its leaves for the Fall season. Simultaneously, these trees change color, giving way to brilliant yellow, gold, orange, or slightly red hues. This spectacular event usually happens in Durango, Colorado around the last two weeks in September and the first week of October.

Located deep in the heart of the San Juan Forest, ziplining through these colorful trees is a must-see attraction in the Durango area. With 27 spans and several additional unique features, Soaring is the world’s leading adventure course.
