This is a special place for a nice hike. Follow the creek to the eternal flame which burns in the rocks by the waterfall

Pretty cool. Great walk down some well used trails. Great hike. The gorge is really cool. Great family thing to do. Consider this hike not for the faint of heart.

We decided on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in November to go check out the Eternal Flame, there is a path to get down to the flame which is probably close to 1/2 mile trek. It's a lot of steep hills, few stairs, a lot of...More

Beautiful day and walk. I've been wanting to get here for some time and we decided last minute to take a day trip for our anniversary. Well worth the hike.

Absolutely breath taking view. A bit of hike through the woods. Wear hiking shoes or sneakers. Can be slippery in the rain. You will get back to nature on this hike. A natural gas flame that is lit all the time.

This is a cool natural feature to see. It's a relatively short hike, maybe 20-25 minute walk. It's a little slippery in spots, but you'll know where. I think it's a great idea to stop by earlier in the morning or maybe before dinner-time so...More

The hike in is definitely close to a mile. The path is well marked however there are a lot of roots and uneven ground. A portion of the trail is along the river bank. Definitely take your time and watch your footing. You may have...More

Cool hike, and cool pictures along the way and at the end. It is a short hike to get to the flame. The whole hike is very picturesque.

This is a beautiful scene. It is hard to believe this is for real. The only problem is it is too crowded. So try to go at a off time.Or all you will see is people.
