Then, meet at Lilly Bridge at 11 a.m. (EDT) for our Climb with a Ranger program.

All that you need to bring is drinking water, sturdy footwear, a willingness to try new things and a can-do attitude. Depending on participant interests and ability levels, we will travel to one of several different climbing areas around the park and will have participants back to their vehicles by approximately 3 p.m. (EDT). Would be rock climbers of all ages are encouraged to attend.
