“Mini Grand Canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We went in the early evening, incredible views, beautiful light. The trails into the canyon are a bit steep, but worth the effort.

“Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Beautiful views, well worth walking down into the canyon. Go early in the morning or later towards evening and miss the crowds. be aware there are no toilets/ washrooms here.

“One of Canada's best attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

The view and opportunity to explore combine to make this one of Canada's best attractions. Don't expect anything on the scale of the Grand Canyon, but don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a part of the country unlike any other.

“Cool Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

This was an informative and interesting stop for us and the view was very good. We were able to see across the river to another viewing area and once discovering that, our one trip turned into two as we had to check it out from the other side.

Definitely a great stop and worth a look!
