What a great experience! My son & I went on this 3 hour adventure together. Definitely a workout. One mile hike to the climbing area. Then an awesome climb on the mountain side using metal rails and the mountain rock ledges to climb on. You are always clipped in along guide cables from your harness with two lines with carabiners...

The Via Ferrata is an amazing experience for the adventurous. It doesn't require skill or knowledge of rock climbing, but it definitely requires some physical fitness and ability to handle extreme heights. I have been on the climb a few times and someone always bails out because they didn't realize it would be hard. That said, if you're adventurous this... More

We had a group of 7 go zip lining. Everyone there was amazing and helpful. The ride to the top of the mountain was a little scary. other than that it was amazing hope to return soon.

My boyfriend and I climbed the Via Ferrata today and it was gorgeous! Our guide Garrett was awesome! We lucked out and we're the only ones signed up for the 9 am climb. It rained lightly but that was ok, it was beautiful! Don't miss out on this opportunity!

I was there last weekend with my friend and camped in one of the cabins. The entire grounds were kept very clean and well taken care of. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The via ferrata was amazing and most certainly took me out of my comfort zone. We met great people on the trip and had excellent guides.... More

We participated in the Via Ferrata climb. Matt, our guide, was very patient and instructive as we had no prior climbing abilities. It really is amazing that you can access such heights with no experience. I would definitely recommend this company.

I organized a group of 12 for our via ferrata climb Memorial Day weekend. The weather couldn't have been better. This was a father/son excursion. The oldest in our group was in his mid 60's and the youngest was about 15. Our climb was scheduled for 1pm. we met about 30 minutes before to get out safety gear assigned to... More

We arrived late at night and found the area welcoming and fairly easy to find-- the detailed directions the center provides really helped! We settled into a clean, spacious tent site (it was early in the season, so not at all crowded!). The next day, Ashley & Jessie led us and ~10 other people on a via ferrata climb. This... More

Nelson Rocks is a beautiful discovery in West Virginia that should be added to everyone's bucket list! Two evenings of walking up the hill to discover new things about the rocks was just what was needed after arrival and the working all day. The accomodations are simple and the host very hospitable. Definitely coming back!!
