Very low thrill Zipline and the sky bridges are a complete joke. It's $100 that I wish I hadn't spent. If you want very little excitement this is your place. However I will say the staff is very friendly.

The via ferrata course at NROCKS made for a fantastic adventure. After a safety walk through and a short hike, we were ascending the amazing Nelsons Rocks formation, and spent about 3 hours climbing, taking in the amazing views, and taking photos. Our guide Kenny was great. If you enjoy climbing, this is an excellent way to experience an amazing... More

We purchased the North Fork Valley Canopy Tour. We were driven up the mountain and then zip-lined down 12 zip-lines, walked across a few short swinging bridges and ended by repelling down a rope from the last tree. Our two guides John and Brandon were very good with all age levels and comfort levels with everyone in our group. They... More

My wife and I had a reservation for a Friday late morning. It was perfect weather and we ended up having a private guide for just the two of us. We were able to take our time, soak in the views, have some great conversation with our guide Jeffrey. Jeffrey was very laid back and never pushed us to move... More

Before having brain surgery in September I wanted to experience zip lining and I found NROCKS Outdoor Adventure Center by Googling. We had an ok time but it wasn't the adrenaline rush I was expecting after reading their website and seeing their posted pictures. For me I was lead to believe that we would have these amazing views and would... More

Seven came to NROCKs from our yearly family reunion at Cass, WV for the zipping/canopy tour and had a lot of fun (exciting but not too demanding). Loved zipping through the trees and our guides were very nice and helpful.

This was one of the most awesome experiences that I have ever encountered. My daughter and myself experienced this breathtaking, heart pounding adventure and WOW! The scenery, the guide, the time that I got to spend with my daughter, it was a perfect day! I've lived in WV for 38 years and I never knew such a beautiful place existed.... More

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
