We live 4 hours away & never knew of this gem until looking for a cabin getaway led us here. Sneaky Bear cabins are luxurious & about 20 minutes away (highly recommend). We went during the week and driving the park saw few other cars....More

In our 60's, this was perfect hiking for us. It had rained so we could have done without the mud at times but hiking is hiking! Each pull off leads to wonderful short hikes which the distance is listed on the map. Online or at...More

We choose to visit the gorge on 2 different days. On Day 1, we went by motorcycle with our Son who is 41. We stopped at several sites and walked easier paths since we are in our 70’s and not hikers. Areas we visited were...More

We are not hikers, but driving through the Nada tunnel and the winding mountain roads of the RRG were beautiful. Plenty of parking at the various trail heads and the visitor's center was super nice.

We were disappointed in our visit to the Gorge. Nada Tunnel was interesting, Gladie Cabin was, too. Unfortunately, the Visitor's Center was closed- along with nearly every other shop, restaurant, and attraction during our early week visit. To be expected off season, but before Labor...More

Beautiful and uncrowded on Tuesday. Most of the time I felt as if I had it all to myself. Don't miss the NADA tunnel but be sure to remove sunglasses, esp. on a motorcycle.

My husband and I love hiking in the gorge. We first visited last year (and got engaged!) and plan to return at least annually. It's a beautiful place to hike, camp, climb, or just hang out. Great for families, couples, and groups!

The Sky lift is well worth the money (12.00 - 15.00 depending on if you want round trip). The views are amazing. I was a little scared but managed to turn my fear into excitement. The Natural Bridge is beautiful and the walkway to get...More

So many trails, too little time! Love this area. We hit a great weather weekend and hiked many miles. We camped for 2 night and thoroughly enjoyed this scenic area. Plenty to do.

Rock Bridge is a short hike to only arch with water flowing under it. And Creation Falls along trail is great background for photo opportunities

Hi! Definitely go to the Natural Bridge and check that out - a large natural bridge. The lodge in the park is very nice; we did not know about it and if we had, we would have stayed there. The Daniel Boone Nat'l Forest... More

I am not sure about the Skylift but we were on several of the trails and we did not see any that were built to accommodate a scooter. There are some beautiful drives but all of the Rock Attractions and overviews are a... More
