Bike, Zip, and Raft Zoar
Bike, Zip, and Raft Zoar
July 6 - 7, 2019
Cool-off this summer with an adrenaline-packed adventure rafting and ziplining (or mountain biking) the Zoar Gap.
We are bringing you to New England’s premier whitewater rafting and adventure zone! No Lehigh or Delaware river float here. This is real class III-IV whitewater, only available on the clean and clear waters in the Zoar Gap of the Berkshires.
We won't stop there. An adrenaline packed adventure wouldn't be complete without the option of ripping through the trees on one of the highest and longest ziplines in North America or mountain biking through single tracks that crisscross the mountain side.
But don’t get nervous! No matter your skill or passion, adrenaline junkies and novices will find fun and adventure on this trip. This moderately-priced excursion packs in tons of exhilaration, while not breaking the bank. Included is transportation, a modest inn, rafting gear and guides, ziplining or mountain bike gear, a welcome reception, and a BBQ lunch.

Sat, Jul 6 | Arrive & Zipline or MTN Bike
NYC GOATs will meet our shuttle for a 7:30 am departure from Paragon Sports in Union Sq.
GOATs will arrive by 11:30 am in the Berkshires for a quick lunch prior to check-in.
By early afternoon you’ll have either flown 50 mph, 200 ft above the trees on over 8000 ft of wire strung between 6 towers and 2 mountain peaks or, after expert instruction, ripped through wooded single track trails exploring the north woods via mountain bike. Afterwards, we’ll catch our breath at our 19 acre mountain-top inn. There we'll relax, freshen up, and enjoy a welcome reception overlooking the vista before heading out to dinner (just in time to watch the sunset across the valley).
Sun, Jul 7 | Rafting & Depart
After an early but hearty breakfast, we'll arrive at the river timed for the dam release. 1000 cfs of rushing water that will swell the narrow river bed as it drops continuously over five miles, creating class III and IV rapids. It's non-stop action from put-in to take-out, from the largest rapid, “Dragon’s Tooth” to "Terminator", the river's longest labyrinth of white water. But don't be intimidated, while it's exhilarating, our experienced guides keep it safe enough for beginners and exciting for thrill seekers.
We'll end our wild weekend on the deck of the Crazy Horse, a mountain-side pub, enjoying a casual BBQ cookout lunch. While grabbing drinks, exchanging photos and videos, and swapping contact info, we'll bid adieu to new friends and make our way back home. (NYC GOATs taking our shuttle will arrive in NYC ~ 8:00pm)
