The Via Ferrata at Nelson Rocks is one of only a few of its kind in the United States. It consists of cables, bridges and metal pieces drilled into the rock. These allow people to ascend and descend the over one thousand feet of rock surface without the need for technical knowledge or climbing gear.
Nelson Rocks does also allow group climbing with a guide and has a canopy tour along with lodging.
Nelson Rocks is south of Seneca Rocks on rt. 28/33 (Google directions below).
