Trip Description

Experience the Nelson Rocks Preserve, as it weaves its way over a half mile of some of the wildest terrain around. 'Via Ferrata' is Italian for 'Iron Way'. Access high places usually reserved for experienced technical rock climbers, providing exhilarating views and exposure. A great swinging foot bridge will get you to the last steep section. A small group will make a day trip of it-so sign up early and pack your lunch! All levels welcomed-m even beginners- all you need is a great attitude and not be afraid of exposure
