Bear Mountain Ziplines, Luray

#2 of 10 in Outdoors in Luray
Zipline · Outdoor Activity

The first of our planned ziplines tours, it includes 7 ziplines, for a total of 2,700 feet of line racing through the forest canopy at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. The last 1,000 foot stretch brings you over a meadow to land on the tower above our 3-story Bear Scramble climbing wall.

Your trip starts with a rustic wagon 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 you a safe as well as invigorating experience.

Please note that participants must weigh between 70 and 250 lbs., and be at least 8 years of age to ride Mama Bear.


Scramble up our 3-story climbing wall to ring the bell at the top. Our climbing 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 climbing wall is available in 30 minute increments, giving climbers numerous chances to improve their times or try out a trickier path.

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. To ensure a safe experience, our equipment is regularly checked and kept up-to-date according to the Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT).

The Bear Scramble can accommodate guests who weigh between 50 and 300 lbs. Located against the tower for the final descent of the Mama Bear Zipline tour, it’s also a great activity for guests who are waiting or too young for the zipline tours.
