I was glad I had worn sturdy comfortable footwear for this hike. The path was wet (it had rained daily the week we visited) and you walk under falling water a few times. So also glad to have had a hooded rain jacket. We entered the gorge before 10 a.m. so there weren't many others until later. I would not... More

I loved the gorge. We went on a nice day so that helped but I think it would have been great either way. The water was flowing pretty fast and there were small waterfalls all over coming down the side of the gorge. It was just really pretty and a nice walk. From the bus we walked up through the... More

Great hike to view carved tunnels amid rock formation that is spectacular. Waterfalls and rapids are common. If you are physically able take the expert hike and cross the suspension bridge for an even more dramatic viewpoint. Wear good shoes, take a flashlight and for those physically challenged just take your time.

Hike through the gorge, then up to Eckbauer and take a cute little 2 seater gondola down. Absolutely beautiful hike.

The gorge is worth visiting. Take into account a 30 min walk to the entrance. The walk along the gorge is beautiful - a lot of mud so where sensible shoes.

We went there during winter, but still it was very nice with all the ice around. Natural environment, I loved it.

I am definitely glad we went to the Gorge! It was definitely a great experience and a good way to burn off a few calories during the long walk! Definitely bring a raincoat or something to cover your head if you don't want water dripping on your head!

This was a pretty neat sight to see. Reminded me a lot of the slot canyons in The Narrows in Zion National Park, except the water is really rushing hard though this.
