Circleville, WV (PRWEB) September 10, 2011
Blue Ridge Outdoor Magazine is sponsoring a weekend giveaway (http://www.blueridgeoutdoors.com/contests/nelson-rocks-outdoor-center-giveaway/) featuring some high-flying fun and specutacular climbing adventures at Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center (NROC) in Pendleton County, W.Va. The giveaway includes tours for two of the Via Ferrata guided climbing adventure and the North Fork Valley Canopy Tour, the latest addition to Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center’s adventure repertoire. Lodging at Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center’s Yellow House Inn is included. The Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center adventure weekend giveway will be awarded on September 16, 2011.
The new canopy tour, with its 12 zip lines and three sky bridges amidst a beautiful mature hardwood forest. allows visitors to explore the natural wonders of West Virginia from new perspectives normally reserved for birds and other treetop inhabitants. The Canopy Tour is situated on the steep northwestern slopes of Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center, a privately owned 145-acre nature preserve in Pendleton County, W.Va.
Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center’s original claim to fame is the exhilarating guided rock climbing adventure, the Via Ferrata –the second to be built in the United States. The Via Ferrata, Canopy Tour and Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center’s beautiful hiking trails reflect the Preserve’s dedication to the preservation of the mountain as a natural, scenic and recreational resource. With onsite lodging (rustic cabins, tent camping, and the newly refurbished Yellow House Inn vacation house), Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center provides yet another venue for learning about the area’s rich natural history. Visitors can see the habitat of the elusive bobcats that den in the boulder fields, spot bald eagles that commonly circle high above, and witness first-hand the unfortunate battle between the mighty eastern hemlock and the tiny, but relentless, woolly adelgid.
Adventures at Nelson Rocks Outdoor Center are by reservation only – open -seven days a week and on holidays. Age and weight requirements are as noted per activity choice.
