Spent the afternoon hiking the trails around the gorge. Scenic and well maintained. Saw several people tubing and they looked as though they were all enjoying it. Nice activity that did not cost a fortune for family of 5 to enjoy.

Went for the day but really was only there for a few hours. The hiking trail is not really a trail. The fun pat was the tubing.

You may wish to contact the park directly. I'd guess they'd shut the front gates in which case the entire park is inaccessible.
