We walked the trail to Canyon Falls and saw the beauty that was all along its riverside. We also saw Canyon Gorge just as beautiful as the pictures that I had seen advertise for it. Definitely go if you can!!

Based on earlier reviews we stopped. Such a beautiful peaceful walk and a break from a long drive. We didn't have time to go to the end, but I could have spent much more time just relaxing on the rocks in the sun.

This is a must stop, if you are in this area. Nice leg stretch and beautiful level walk for all ages. If you go farther than where the trail ends it does get a bit more complicated and there are cliffs. We stopped at trail...More
