Long walk to the bottom made easier by well maintained wooden walk/stairway with numerous platforms for viewing and resting. Several boulder caves to explore and lovely water falls and cascades. A great trip for a hot day as the temperature at the bottom is several degrees cooler than the surface temp.

The place is not for anyone not able to climb lots of stairs. The walkways are well designed with great care not to disturb nature. If a tree was in the way they cut a hole in the walkway for the tree. There are lots of small caves to climb in.

We loved the scenery, it's beautiful. White mountains have so much to offer and during bike week even more. Nothing like riding in fresh air.

If you're a fan of nature and the outdoors this place is great. We had a small group all come together so we were able to have a tour guide show us through the gorge and give us the history behind how the gorge was formed over time. Very informative and interesting. I would highly suggest checking it out. The... More

We visited about 10 years ago and remember this place very fondly. Our kids (pretty little at the time) enjoyed it very much.

Visited this attraction with the grandkids a few years ago, and we all had fun clambering through the subterranean rocks and "lemon squeezers". Not a place for a stout person, or one who lacks the flexibility to negotiate a few tricky passages. Very young children should be accompanied, but kids who are adventurous should have a great time.
