“Easy to miss, but don't.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

It's easy to not want to stop yet again. But do. The short walk is paved and easy for a leg stretcher. Then you are rewarded with an incredibly deep, narrow canyon. It only takes a few minutes to see, but it leaves an indelible mark on your memory.

“Definitely worth a stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Take the time to stop, get out of the car and cross the road for a phenomenal view of the box canyon. it's impossible to put into words the depth and dimensions of this canyon. It was a wonderful pullout with bathroom facilities that were nonoperational but there were port-a-pots available. Bathrooms need to be repaired, otherwise a great stop with a tremendous view.

“The power of the water leaves you breathless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

This narrow canyon has so much water thundering through, it's hard to imagine. The hiking trail is pretty, and a short and easy walk for almost anyone. Well worth the stop

“This is simply awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

A deep, deep narrow gorge with a rushing river way down there -- oh my. Very powerful sight. You can actually just stop at the parking lot along the road and see it if you don't want to do the hikes.
