Pick Your Passion at the US National Whitewater Center
A fairytale land for outdoor enthusiasts. The USNWC brings together everything from rapids to mountain biking to high ropes on one gorgeous ground.
Just outside of the QC lies a wonderful world of water, trees and trails! You'll find your folly and come back for more. Other than boasting an outstanding landscape design, the USNWC has countless activities to get your adrenaline pumping.
Challenge treetops and venture through canopy trails across the river or in the thick of the forests. Get your feet wet and your body drenched while taking on the waters with some group rafting or solo kayaking, or go for something a little more zen an paddle board on the flat water bits. Feel like a kid again while gliding down the Mega Zip, a 1,123 ft line that gives you the best 360 degree view of the entire premises. Bike through rocky trails while reflecting in some of the nearby lakes. Rock climb. Take on an obstacle challenge. Or simply find the warmest grassy patch and bask in the sun. And by the end of the day when you're all tuckered out, enjoy a beer on draft at the biergarten or a hearty meal from the River's Edge Bar and Grille.
USNWC has something for all ages and is dog friendly too! Make sure to stop by on one of their special events—they've got a year packed of benefit runs, concerts, and more! Bring the whole family, your bestie, or an outdoor enthusiast date.
