Taking in the views of the famous “High Line” will keep you on the edge of your seat, but the combination of the cool breeze coming off of the mighty Animas River and the fresh mountain air will help you relax in the comfort of your seat.  Steep cliff faces, canyons, and majestic mountain ridges all make for an unforgettable experience. You may even recognize the scenery from one of the movies that have been filmed in the area!

The historic Durango Train is perfect for the whole family, young and old.  The DSNGRR also provides the only transportation to and from our property.  That’s right; you’ll be venturing deep into the San Juan Mountain range to get a true, untouched perspective on the beauty of Southwest Colorado.

When traveling to Soaring, get ready for a luxurious ride in one of our first-class private train cars (tickets are included in your Canopy Tour Package).  Overstuffed leather seats, plush pillows, and rich wood characterize the Tall Timber Legend and Legacy, making for one of the most comfortable rides available.  Our guests receive a top-notch experience from the time they set foot aboard the train until they arrive back in Downtown Durango after a full day of zipping through the Ponderosa Pines and Aspen groves.  If you’re interested in learning more about Soaring Tree Top Adventures or booking a reservation, visit us online at or call (970) 769-2357.
