A Typical Day

Day 1: Zoar Gap Rafting

We offer both full and half day options. Full day bookings start at either 10:30 or 11:30 and paddle a ten-mile stretch of class II and III whitewater. We stop for a picnic-style lunch halfway down the river, and end the day celebrating our class III Zoar Gap run with a photo slideshow. If booking the 12:30 Half-Day Gap trip, you’ll raft the beautiful upper Fife Brook section ending with the class III Zoar Gap. Half day trips do not include lunch.

Overnight: Cabin Tent Lodging

Camp out in one of our comfortable Cabin Tents. Each raised platform has a large canvas tent set up on it, with four cots inside, and a small gas grill for simple meals.

Day 2: Zip Line Canopy Tour

Start your morning with a three-hour tour through the trees. The trip includes 11 zips, two sky bridges, and 3 rappels.

For Rafting:

Expect everything you bring on the raft to get wet! Best options for clothing: bathing suit and/or shorts in the warmer weather, longer pants and sweater made of wool, nylon, fleece, or polypropylene in the colder weather. Sneakers or other shoes that can get wet (no flip-flops or Crocs!) Cotton Clothing such as blue jeans, sweatshirts, or t-shirts, is not appropriate for rafting since cotton keeps you cold when it gets wet. All Guests will be required to wear a Zoar Outdoor issued PFD(Personal Flotation Device) and Helmet.

For Camping:

Bedding is not provided, so be sure to bring pillows and sheets and blankets (or a sleeping bag). You should also bring quarters for the coin-operated showers as well as shampoo, etc. The paths through the campground are not lit, so please remember to bring a flashlight. Our camping is located a few hundred yards off Route 2 and across the river from a rail line. Train and vehicle traffic varies greatly from day to day, but some campers prefer to use ear plugs on busier nights.

To Zipline:

Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the season, but avoid loose clothing that could tangle in ropes or other gear. Skirts should be avoided. In late fall or winter months, it is better to come with too many articles of clothing than to come with not enough! We go in the rain, so come prepared with rain gear if needed. You should also remove any dangling jewelry and tie long hair back.

Zip line canopy tours are open to anyone age 10 or up. Participants should be able to hike a short distance downhill and should be in reasonable physical shape. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. We have a minimum weight limit of 70 lbs and a maximum of 250 lbs. Since zip lining is gravity driven, we must adhere to these weight limits strictly for the safety of our guests. We reserve the option to weigh guests when they arrive to determine eligibility for the canopy tour. We can not allow pregnant women to zip. All zip line participants take part in a ground school before getting onto the actual canopy tour. At the ground school, participants must demonstrate the ability to hand brake, self rescue and follow directions from their guides before being allowed on the canopy tour itself.

For all of our whitewater trips, guests must be able/willing to do the following: Wear a helmet and our personal flotation device (PFD), respond to and follow verbal or visual instruction, roll from front to back in water while wearing a PFD, demonstrate dynamic sitting position (sitting upright), and float with feet up in water. Specifically for our beginner Zoar Gap trip, guests should be able to paddle in the rapids, but with frequent rests. Remain calm, lay flat, and orient their body so their feet are aiming downstream if they find themselves unexpectedly in the water. Our PFDs fit a maximum chest size of 56 inches.

Don’t forget to read your confirmation letter (there is a lot of useful information in there!). Call our office if you have any additional questions. We’re always happy to help!
