IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Tall towers rise up along the Interstate 70 corridor near Idaho Springs, providing visitors with a new challenge to tackle on their next visit to the area.

Colorado Sky Trek is a brand new aerial adventure park based at the Colorado Adventure Center.

The course is built on several historic mining claims, so in keeping with Colorado history, the company designed the course around a mining theme.
