Excitement & Trepidations
The guests are excited, but also nervous, as they arrive for their tour. The “local dump” setting adds to the mixed feelings.
Take a few minutes to get to know them and share the plan for the adventure.
The trail builds up gradually, giving the guests a chance to take in the beauty close to the trail.
The step hill down to the creek and the creek crossing push many of our guests outside of their comfort zone. Coach them through the process and make sure to celebrate afterward.
This tour naturally builds up to the moment as we come around the bend to see the falls. LKet the guests enjoy the place while you set up snacks for them.
The Way Back
The way back takes us along a pretty canyon and a quiet forest, giving them the chance to enjoy the sense of calm.
The ice pops back at the trailhead help wrap up the adventure, providing a refreshing end to the hike and the chance to encourage them to join us for another tour in the future.
