The trip concludes with a tram ride up from the Mountain Creek Lodge back to the where the tour began.
For nature lovers, enjoy stunning views as you are immersed deep in the forested wilderness and treated to the experience of passing overtop the Bluestone River.

Safety is our primary concern. Two guides (lead and sweep) accompany a group of eight guests. You are always clipped-in and safety systems are redundant. Our guides and equipment follow the American Challenge Course Technology standards, the highest in the industry. Our professional guides are knowledgeable about the local flora, fauna and history of the Pipestem Resort State Park and the surrounding area. They’re also known to lighten the mood with a few jokes and stories.
Guests must demonstrate basic skills (like lifting arms above your head) and the ability to follow commands and be able to hike downhill 1,500 ft. Closed-toe shoes (no flip flops) are required.
