I'm 66, and took my 14 year old grandson. Two days later and he is still talking about our trip to whomever will listen. Everyone was pleasant and fun, especially the guides. Plan to go again.

Our annual trip to NC mountains was almost rained out, but The Gorge in Saluda operates rain or shine. Guides Noah and JD provided a truly breathtaking experience for us novice "zippers". Very patient & knowledgeable. 2018 trip was one for the memory books.

With a fully booked group, plan on being on the zip course for 3 hrs, and plan for 3.5 - 4 hours door to door. If you happen to be with a smaller group the trip can run more quickly.
