Ziplining minutes from Yellowstone's East Gate

Awake with Sleeping Giant

Get rare views of Yellowstone National Park while literally flying through the air.

Located just 3.4 miles away from Yellowstone’s East Entrance, Sleeping Giant Zip Line offers five zip lines, starting with the first one that brings you across the North Fork of the Shoshone River for a short test ride. Then tackle the next four zip lines, racing a partner, if you want, on dual zip lines and keeping your eyes peeled for wildlife like bears and bison off in the distance in the Shoshone National Forest.

For total adrenaline junkies, opt for the Quick Drop at the end that’s a freefall off a 35-foot platform. The Sleeping Giant Zip Line is open daily June 15-Sept. 15.
