Great mountain activity with lots of variety including traversing, zip-lining, rappelling, and more. We did this as a team outing and had a lot of fun! It's an adventure and not too technical. The whole team loved it and we highly recommend it!

What a fun adventure! We made reservations for our group so it was great to just walk up and get on the course. 6 zip lines but a few fun alternatives or add ins along the way. Our guides Matt and Emma were wonderful.

Our guide Jacob was so down to earth. He had a lot of knowledge about the area and made us laugh with all his funny jokes. Jacob seemed to be very skilled with his rafting. My family had a blast on this trip.
