“Asci- Adventure Sports Center Institute - a man made whitewater course located just a few minutes up the mountain from The Wisp. It is the only mountaintop recirculating whitewater course in the world with gentle rapids in a controlled environment. If you’re just not into the whitewater or just curious you can walk a one mile trail around the course, watching the more adventurous hit the rapids. Abundant parking. ”
