Come Fly With Us!
All zips are located in Quiet Canyon, dominated by the North Lajitas Mesa and its prominent shape that can be seen from miles away. Volcanic activity shaped what we can see today over 30 million years ago, with many different colors and shades whose appearance changes with the differing light conditions. A plethora of amazing rocks and petrified wood cover the surface of the desert, it’s like walking through a gem mine! Common plants found are the Creosote Bush, Ocotillo Cactus, Prickly Pear, Candelilla and Mesquite. Red tailed hawks often can be seen soaring overhead and jackal (road runner) and dove are commonly seen on the canyon floor. Aoudad sheep regularly make an appearance high on the canyon ridges and occasionally, mountain lion tracks can be found. Javelina are frequently spotted early morning and evening making their way through dry creek beds. Zipping Lajitas is much more than a ride down cable lines, it is a magical experience shaped by nature and the great outdoors. Riders reach speeds up to 50 mph and the zipline includes the latest technology and gear plus an automatic breaking system. We had a fun zipline tour at Lajitas - read all about it.
