Big Bradley Waterfall Rappel

The Bradley Falls 200 ft Rappel is a thrill you won’t get anywhere else. Practice your rappelling skills on a 30 ft vertical rock face before your descent next to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the region. Be prepared to get wet, the splash from the waterfall is just part of the experience. And remember to keep your eyes peeled for the abundant salamanders clinging to the wall.


If this trip isn’t on your bucket list, it should be. Our rappel program is reviewed by American Mountain Guide Association certified facilitators and meets current standards. At “Ground School” we’ll orient you to your harness and gear and teach you the techniques of rappelling on a gentle slope. When you’ve mastered your rappel device, muster your courage on a 30 ft vertical wall before descending the 200 ft Waterfall Rappel.

Offered as a half-day trip, the Bradley Falls Rappel can also be combined with the Big Bradley Waterfall Trek for a full-day canyoneering expedition (lunch included)!

Your guide will be assisting the entire time.

A light snack and water is provided on the trip.

The Bradley Falls Rappel is a high-adventurewilderness experience, which requires active participation. This trip is not recommended for some older adults or participants with health conditions that may require immediate attention.
