I loved our trip on the via! We had an outstanding guide and a small lovely group. We had amazing weather and great views! If you have an extra $100 or so to spend, go here!

LOVE this place. We just got back from our 6th trip at Nelson Rocks. The VIA is always so much fun and our guide, Josh, was amazing. We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather. The staff is always extremely helpful, friendly and professional. The last time we went, we were expecting to do a moonlight climb but the weather did not cooperate. The staff rescheduled the climb for the next day and gave us back the difference in price. They are always so willing to accommodate. We stayed in the cabins which have had many upgrades since we first started going in 2010. There is now a bath house with running hot water. The cabins have solar power so there is a little light. I love it there and it's such a nice weekend getaway.

“Via Ferrata & Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

NROC's via ferrata is one of the best outdoor adventure in the east. The location is fantastic, close to many other great hiking venues in eastern WV. We ended up staying two nights in their fairly new guest house. The rooms are spare, but very clean and adequate for short stays. Don't expect a hotel or hotel service, but everything was handled efficiently and with a smile. Pre-trip information about the via was very helpful. (Don't do this if you have a fear of heights or are not in good shape.) Our guide, Tony, was experienced, knowledgeable, and added much to the experience.

“Via Ferrata-Canopy tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We had great weather for the Via Ferrata. Our guides Tess and Tony kept us safe. the optional loop to the top with 96 degree wall was the highlight of the climb.
I returned just in time for the afternoon canopy tour. 12 zip lines and 3 bridges later the day was unforgettable. Go to Seneca Rocks for food...home made pizza!
