“Wow!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

If it hadn't been raining and chilly the day we hiked the Flume Gorge, it would have been a perfect day! This is an incredible show of nature! There are miles of trails and the Flume Gorge which is awe inspiring, even in the fall. You take way too many pictures because everywhere you turn is more beautiful than the last place! There is also a covered bridge on the property. Even though it was raining, we spent at least 3 hours there. Don't miss it!

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We went to the top of Mt. Cannon on the tram. Beautiful views in all directions. Well worth it. Driving down to The Flume Gorge we stopped at the Basin and other overlooks along the way, all very beautiful. The Flume Gorge is so beautiful we hiked it twice. Worth every step!

“Great information center and View”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Current information is posted each morning. The view of the slab where the old man of the mountain was is worth the time to stop and absorb.
