Event Description

August 14, 2013 Updated Aug 30, 2013 at 7:48 AM EDT

On Saturday, September 7, beginning at 9:00 a.m. members of the general public can fly through the air on a 150-foot Zip Line and try scaling the 30-foot Rock Climbing Wall at the Anthony Wayne Scout Reservation (also known as Camp Chief Little Turtle), 2282 West 500 South, Pleasant Lake, in Steuben County (10 minutes off I-69, exit 340).
Activities will be held rain or shine. While typically the camp’s Zip Line and Rock Climbing Wall are not publicly available, this special opportunity is being offered in conjunction with the Parkview Muddy Trail Run.

Participants do not need to register for the 5K to experience either or both of these added thrills.
The Zip Line fee is $35 per person. The Rock Climbing Wall fee is $30 per person. Times are available throughout the day, beginning at 9:00 a.m., and can be selected at time of registration at

The Parkview Muddy Trail Run 5K is a partnership of Junior Achievement and Anthony Wayne Area Council Boy Scouts of America. Proceeds from the event will benefit both local organizations, and registrants can direct their support.

For more information and to register for the Zip Line and Climbing Wall experiences, visit or call Junior Achievement at (260) 484-2543.
