You catch an open chairlift up to the zip platform which in itself is a great ride. Upon reaching the zip platform you are security trusted into your harness and pushed against the launch gate...then it opens and you hurtle towards the ground, 150 feet in the air. The force of the brakes at the bottom takes your breath away...but... More

Tried the zip line today. The only other that I have done was in Maui. This one was pretty good with gorgeous views. The wind was gusty, coming down off of Mt. Washington so I got turned sideways a bit. Was expecting to get some natural deceleration before stopping but instead hit the bottom at speed. A little jarring but... More

Brilliant but over too quick ... you ride on a ski lift up the top 2100ft .. when you get there your strapped onto the zip wire and you rest your feet on a board...this is the most scary part ...the antisipation of what's going to happen once that board goes down and you slide down 2100ft 70ft above the...

Rode the gondola up wiht family this year and had a picnic on top, and hiked the ridge to a vantage point and a lite extra. Wear hikng shoes as the first pitch after the gondola station is steep. The view is primarily Huntington and Tuckerman's... More

We had the most pleasurable experience with my Sons wedding on July 27,2013. The Staff, Iva, Patrick, Linda and the gang, did an awesome job. We had the ceremony on the lower grounds just before the river and bridge. The entire Wedding party then went to the top of the Mountain for pictures. While we were all up having our... More

Rode the ski lift up and down - gorgeous views and scenic picture taking opportunities up top. Down below we watched people come down on the zip line which looked like lots of fun but I was too chicken to try it myself.

The views are incredible! We went on a VERY hot day and the bugs were out in full force (bring bug juice!) The gondolas were enclosed, which for a hot day made us roast BUT the view was worth it!

We initially visited this site to utilize a trail that led to a waterfall. By the way, the waterfall was beautiful, the hike was a nice family hike, and it was FREE. While we were on the property, we of course couldn't help but notice all the fun stuff they had to do there even in the summer, so we... More

This zip line is awesome, great price, very nice staff. The ride up the mountain is almost as much fun as the ride down! Great half price offer for another ride!!!

First of all, the trail head is inside Wildcat which is not well marked. The first half of the trail is ok but once you cross the street the trail is barely even marked. When crossing over the falls its very difficult to find the trail. Not worth the hike in my opinion.
