Garden of the Gods Resort Outfitters 3

Woods Course

Restrictions and Inclusions

  • Duration: 3 hours (plus 1 hour round trip, travel time)
  • Price: $150++ per person, 1-8 guests per tour
  • Availability: Offered at 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm (Some tours are unavailable in the winter)
  • Transportation is included

Restrictions:

Guests must weigh between 90 and 250 lbs at time of tour, wear closed toed shoes, be of sober mind (no alcohol, legal or illegal substances), and not be pregnant.

Participants will begin the Woods Course with a 15 minute drive up the historic Old Stage Road. Deep in the canyon, they will meet their guides! The guides will take the group through a short orientation and Ground School where they can practice their techniques before starting the tour.

The first two “warm up” lines are 250 and 310 feet long. These shorter lines allow participants to get the feel for the essential zipping techniques. After completing the second zipline, participants will take a short walk where they can take in the beautiful sights up and down the canyon. Standing on top of the granite rock formation, participants will revel in the gorgeous scenery before taking the airy 467-foot ride over the creek below. As they slow down for the landing, they will notice a natural arch to their left just before touching down.

Their excitement will begin to grow as the guides lead the group across the fourth zipline, again touching down above Midnight Falls. Participants will reach their highest point of 156 ft in the air. The group will take another short walk to the fifth, and longest, zipline. Standing amongst the large rock formations they will get a birds’ eye view of the area behind the falls. At this point, they will be standing on one of the highest points in the Seven Falls park. With a bit of faith, participants will zip the 1,500 feet to the final platform. Make sure to take a look at the hiking trails far below. After degearing, the group will have a 15 minute hike to the top of the waterfalls. Participants will have to walk down the 224 steps in front of the waterfalls before leaving the Seven Falls Park.

The tour starts much like the Woods Course with two warm up zips before getting into the cliff condition style zips that gradually get longer and longer. The third zip offers an excellent view of the Seven Falls Canyon and Colorado Springs as you land near the rock “fins”. These fin like formations are the inspiration for the name of this course!

From the cliff side, you will walk over a 200 foot rope bridge to the eastern fin. From there, you can see just how large the Broadmoor and Colorado Springs are. After taking in the views and walking the second bridge, you will find yourself zipping 1,333 feet across the canyon to the south side of Mt. Cutler! Your heartbeat begins to rise as you cross over the canyon road 509 feet below before landing on the cliff side.

As you catch your breath and look up and down the Seven Falls canyon, your guides will begin to clip you into the final zip. Prepare to zip 1,800 feet up the canyon! Don’t forget to look down at the park visitors below! If the fifth zip wasn’t enough, we have added a unique ending to the Fins course. You will end the tour with a 180 foot assisted rappel to the canyon floor. Those visiting Seven Falls will watch in amazement as you rappel off the ridge.

To finish an exciting couple hours in the mountains, you will get to enjoy the Seven Falls park and restaurant 1858 at your leisure. When you are finished, make your way to the entrance of the park to catch a shuttle back to the Outfitters pavilion for transportation back to Garden of Gods Resort and Club.

Your guides will then hook you up to the second longest zip of the day. Make sure to take in the views of the forest below as you land on the platform 1500 ft away.

After finishing the Woods Course, you will have a 20-25 minute hike to reach the sixth zipline and enter the Fins Course. You are only one zip away from the iconic rope bridges. Get excited! The two 200 ft bridges traverse the rock fins that give the course it’s name. Test your nerves by walking across without holding onto the sides! As you cross the seventh zip, you will reach the highest point of 505 ft and see some of the most impressive views of the day. You will land on a platform suspended on the side of a cliff.

About Resort Outfitters

In the early 90s, newly married and each fresh out of BYU’s master’s program, Duane and Darlene Zobrist left for Scotland to attend the British School of Falconry. While there, the two fell in love with what they were learning made plans to bring the Sport of Kings home to the U.S. They soon began building a business model. The Falconry Academy was established in 1992 in the Zobrists’ home state of California.

Over the next two years, Duane and Darlene zeroed in on a lucrative target market for their falconry programs – exclusive resorts. In 1994, The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV added the Falconry Academy to their list of resort activities, and the Zobrists, along with a cadre of 8 birds of prey, moved across the country. In 1997, The Greenbrier’s existing outdoor vendor left, and the Zobrists were asked to take on bike rentals for the 11,000-acre property. Thus, Greenbrier Outfitters evolved from what had been a falconry-only business. The venture grew to include kayak trips down the Greenbrier, New, and Jackson Rivers, and from there team-building programs was a natural evolution. Drawing on a long and active involvement with Boy Scouts and his graduate degree in public administration, Duane had a natural inclination for building teams. Early programs included orienteering with map and compass as well as other mental and physical challenges that encouraged communication and trust.

In 1998, the Alpine Tower was built on the grounds of The Greenbrier Resort. This addition enabled Greenbrier Outfitters to move into the popular arena of high-ropes team building. (The tower also provided another a la carte adventure for the general resort population.) Soon, large companies and other organizations were seeking Greenbrier Outfitters to enhance corporate retreat itineraries and to build more cohesive and healthy teams.

The business began to grow as other resorts in the region sought similar programs for their own guests. The Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA was next to offer falconry. Today, Resort Outfitters serves guests at The Greenbrier Resort; The Omni Homestead Resort; The Resort at Glade Springs in Daniels, WV; The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO; and The Boar’s Head in Charlottesville, VA. Additionally, Resort Outfitters operates an independent outfitter Gasparilla Adventures in Boca Grande, FL.
