The only part of the trail that I enjoy most was the area you can dip you feet in the water. There are plenty of boulders to sit and cool down while dipping your feet between the boulders. We didn't see that many people on this trail than the Whirlpool Rapids Trail. The easy scenic trail from the top of... More

It's something to see, looking over the railing down to all that power in the water. If you've ever done any white water rafting it makes you glad you are looking at it and not in it!

The hike is a snap for fit experienced hikers as you descend granite rock steps a few hundred feet in elevation to a tree shaded trail along the river. The trail extends to... More

I knew there was steps included when I read the reviews but DANG, there's a lot of steps (and they can be steep). We kicked off our vacation doing this trail as our family loves to take walks. I was disappointed that it didn't get closer to the gorge, but we got some beautiful pictures from higher up. You can... More

So awesome!!! This place is amazing! The vegetation is a little grown up in places so it is hard to see if you are short. But otherwise, it is an amazing spot to stop!
