a little pricey, however you can tell they put the funding back into this beautiful area. Allow yourself time to meander though to capture the scenery. Wear comfortable clothing (and that you won't worry about getting a little dirty) if you plan to crawl though some of the well marked caves..

Stop here if you want to see a unique natural feature in a beautiful setting, made accessible by some incredibly creative carpenters. The walk starts in what you might think of as a bit of a rustic old style facility, but the glacial boulder caverns are worth the walk down to the beginning of the gorge. Don't expect this to...

Excellent place for a family outing. The scenery is great. The walk is refreshing although there are a number of stairs. The visits to the caves can be challenging for older people but they can be avoided without subtracting much from the visit. Good value worth spending a couple of hours visiting.

It was ok, but it was very costly for what it was. I expected more of a cave type setting rather than just openings in piles of boulders. Very much a feeling of a tourist trap, but my grandkids seemed to enjoy it. If I had done a little more research into this, I think we would have bypassed it... More

If you are not interested in climbing through caves but are interested in earth science/ geology you will still like this attraction. At first I thought it was a pricey walk in the woods but as we got down to the gorge I realized it was much more than that. The gorge and it's history is pretty cool. If you... More

My family, which includes kids aged 12 and 14, spent a couple hours here. It was a fun visit and we enjoyed our time here. Wear clothes that you can get dirty and hiking/running shoes. The caves are small and fun to climb through. I am claustrophobic so I did not go through the lemon squeezer. :) However, I managed... More

We went in the afternoon and there were very few others there. My son (9) was very grouchy about the bugs on the walk down to the gorge, so use plenty of bug spray, but once we got there, we had to drag him away! I am 6' 5" and did all but the 3 most difficult caves with him,... More

My family and I loved this place! It made me and my kids fill like we were in the movie Goonies when crawling through the caves! This is a place to see! Bring your family and wear hiking boots! Lots of prettiness to see here!
