We had a very good experience. The weather was perfect and the trail wasn't crowded at all. It offers a very close look of the river and the Whirlpool. There were more difficult trails that included steps going closer to the water, but we opted...More

A good trek if you are an adventurous person and have time at your perusal. You can keep this as the last priority though.

Seems like this attraction might be missed by others. Unbelievable breathtaking views .you actually take a elevator down to the gorge area. The trail was a little demanding as we are not used to hiking. It was amazing all of the items that you see...More
