Echo Bluff has over 7,000 yards of cleared trails. Whether you just want a short walk or an all day adventure, you can be assured Echo Bluff is the place to be. The trails are equipped with benches and cleared areas and on several there are descriptions of the trees and natural habitat. We are currently working on connecting trails to create interesting running trails! Hall High School cross country team has practiced on our course and hopefully will host meets at Echo Bluff next year! In addition, Ladd Grade School has run on our trails - we hope they return as well!
Echo Bluff Paintball has been expanded into a 250x500 foot wooded course. Private party reservations are available - with a splittable course. Waivers are available on this site for all participants. There is equipment rental available, compressed air and co2 for tank refills, and paintballs for sale. We also have birthday packages - for an unique way to celebrate your child's special day!
ICE RINK - SKATING/HOCKEY
Illinois Valley's premiere Ice Skating Rink opened in the fall of 2008. The professional rink is available for skating, hockey leagues and more! Be sure to frequently check Facebook for "deals" and updates on lessons.
Challenge courses are composed of both low and high elements and are used by organizations for group and team development. The goal of the Echo Bluff High Ropes Challenge Course is to provide participants with an emotionally and physically sound environment that allows for informed and supportive risk taking opportunities that helps participants develop a higher level of self-worth, increased confidence and the willingness to take appropriate risks and to grow from these new experiences.
When groups or individuals go up on a high ropes course there is a great opportunity for them to learn about risk taking, their own perceived limits, how they perform under pressure, how they give and receive support from other people and how working together with others collaboratively can help an individual accomplish more than they thought they could.
Specific opportunities exist for:
- Team Development
- Trust and Support
- Fostering Respect
- Leadership Fun
Choose Your Challenge
All participants will be informed of the risks involved in the high course they will choose their own level of participation at any time. No participant has to justify their level of participation to the instructor or the group, their informed decision is enough reason for all.
