Canyon Rim Zipline

ZIP 2 (1)

The park’s latest adventure attraction!

Debuted in the fall of 2017, the Canyon Rim Zipline is truly one of a kind. Spanning along the rim of the Russell Fork River Gorge, the zipline will take our guests to heights unseen. Catch a glimpse of why the gorge is so infamously known as the “Grand Canyon of the South” on just under half a mile of line with three different stops.  The park has highly trained guides who will assist our guests with safety tips and will make sure they have a ride of a lifetime. A maximum of eight people are allowed per trip, each trip will take anywhere between an hour and an hour and a half. There is currently an age minimum of 4 years old. Weight minimum is 50 lbs and the weight maximum is 250 lbs. Guests will be weighed prior to getting harnessed in for the trip. Price is currently $50 per person, no matter the age.

Please try to arrive about 20 minutes before your reservation. Long pants are highly recommended for a more comfortable ride, closed-toe shoes are required!  Guests are able to make reservations via online on our website (the red “Book Now” button) or you can call our front desk at (276) 865-4413. You may also sign an e-waiver before your trip, just make sure the date on the waiver is the date of your trip. You can sign the waiver here.

Rock Climbing

In the summer of 2016, the Breaks officially opened five different locations throughout the park for avid rock climbers! All locations were hand-picked to give climbers a truly unique experience while impacting surrounding environments as little as possible. While five locations are opened, new routes will be created as prime locations are found! Anchors are already in place, however, the park does not provide climbing equipment.

The park is partnering with Southeast Mountains Guides, LLC to continue creating and elevating the rock climbing experience available at the park.

Russel Fork Class III-IV (3-4) October weekends special whitewater rafting adventure
Enjoy the scenic beauty of one of America’s most beautiful waterways during its fall foliage. Rafting on the Upper Russell Fork River is a 3 hour, 5-mile long guided river trip. An adventurous and scenic ride including several major Class 3-4 rapids like Railroad, 20 Stitches, and The Box Canyon. Ages 10 & up on the Upper.  All participants should weigh over 50 lbs. * For those interested in the fall foliage peak, it varies from year to year but is a safer bet in the last two weekends of October.

Rafting dates of availability
During our spring season, we reserve trips on weekends through May and daily beginning Memorial Day weekend until the river gets too low.  Unfortunately at some point every spring/summer our beloved Russell Fork River does become too low to give us the predictability to reserve trips that will actually happen. Contact Kentucky Whitewater if at if you are looking for dates beyond June.
***Please note commercial paddling is not available in the middle Gorge section.  It is narrow, dangerous and unpredictable Class V section with and should be attempted only by private expert level paddlers with training and experience necessary to tackle such a dangerous section of whitewater.

Wetsuit rentals are available while reserving your rafting trip and are recommended for our early spring and late fall trips
