ZiplineX boasts one of the most exciting and dynamic zip line courses in all of the Pacific Northwest. Our zip line course spans eight zip lines, eight rope bridges, and a towering spiral staircase. It’s easily one of the most beautiful ways to spend a day while visiting Portland, and a favorite local getaway for Portlanders looking to reconnect with the wild out of doors.
