If you are looking for a great 1/2 day beginner canyoneering trip look no further than the Cove Creek Waterfall Rappel. Below are details on our most popular summer waterfall rappelling trip, which we call Cove Creek waterfall rappel, also known as Cove Creek Canyon.
Cove Creek waterfall rappel and Canyon is a beginner canyoneering experience. Participants should be in good physical shape and be comfortable hiking on rocks at a leisurely pace and hiking up hills at a leisurely pace. A good indicator of if you are capable of doing this trip is if you can easily climb a ladder and long stairs (5 flights). Participants of this program need no prior climbing or rappelling experience. This program includes a 70 ft waterfall rappel and a 30 foot rappel. Some of the travel takes place in the waterways negotiating boulders, while other parts of it take place on trails that parallel the waterway. This trip also includes travel through water that is knee deep.
Canyoneering occurs in remote areas and climbing on small wet boulders is part of the experience.
You will need to bring water and maybe a light snack/ lunch, unless you want us to provide lunch for an additional $15 per person. You will want to wear comfortable clothes that you typically wear to hike in. Canyoneering shoes are available for your use as part of the program. We will supply you with all the climbing gear you need. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org 772-579-0005
Trips are run rain or shine. In case of severe weather where the guide sees a safety risk for participants the trip may be cancelled or shortened and the appropriate refund will be provided. Rain gear is provided if rain is present or expected.
