I recently did the zip line tour with two friends. We were the only three on the tour as it was late in the season, and it took roughly and hour and a half to complete. We had all previously done the Via Ferrata (which was totally amazing!) and put the utmost faith in the NROCKS guides to ensure we... More

Beautiful fall day, colors, and views. Steve, our guide, was great! Very exciting way to enjoy such a unusual formation. Stayed overnight, at their tent site, and enjoyed the starry sky. I will be back. They have additional trails I want to experience!

One of the best single day outdoor adventures I have taken. The scenery, guides, and safety are all top notch. I highly recommend a trip to climb the Via!

I look back at the pictures of me doing the Via Ferrata and smile just seeing the big smile on my face. I loved it! It was safe and soooooo much fun. Our guides were very supportive and focused on safety. Two of our group of 14 made it through the first quarter and then turned back. They were able... More

I went to NRocks with two friends yesterday, and we all had a blast! We were able to experience rockclimbing and bouldering safely and without having to spend money/time on equipment or lessons. We joined others, forming a group of 12, led by two awesome guides, Bryan and Wildflower. The guides knew the course, equipment, and safety. They encouraged the... More

I had the most amazing time with NRocks on the Via Ferrata climb. Britney and Steve were amazing guides. They were both extremely relaxed and chill. There were several nervous first-timers and they were very good at coaxing folks along without any pressure. Very reassuring, and as a result, I was able to even to add on the additional 100'...

This was a very challenging course for me but I was able to do it. We actually went with a group of 14 people and all were at different athletic abilities and all ages. I did get very anxious at the beginning of the climb but kept going anyway and am so glad I did. Brian and Brogen were our... More

This was one of the most unique and amazing things I have ever experienced! It was really an awesome outdoor adventure.. The guide was a super nice guy, very knowledgeable. He made you feel comfortable throughout the entire experience. The views were breathtaking as you literally walked along side a mountain face.. It really was truly an unbelievable experience and...

I've never rock climbed before. I have a healthy fear of heights and the views out here were amazing. Matt and Garnett were great guides and we felt safe in their care. I wish I brought a go pro. We were skeptical on weather we could go because of the rain, but they kept us updated via emails and I'm... More

I highly recommend Nelson's Rocks to anyone. The view was amazing over looking the mountains and the levels changing colors. The tour guides were so kind and very enthusiastic. I recommend that you stay in the lodge if you live more then 2 hours away.
