Even though the walk was easy, it was beautiful. Being at the base of the gorge gave it a very different perspective. The signage was very informative. I liked learning about the different layers of rocks and about the rock slides. The falls were beautiful...More

If taking the trail down from the north rim, know that it's a LONG way back up! If you're looking for an easy walk, park at the Gorge Trail.

overlook doesn't do falls hike justice. The walk to the falls is flat and can be done with a wheelchair or stroller. It's worth it.

We took the drive out to the overlook. Havent been out here for about 15 years atleast. Still beautiful as ever. There are trails you can take down to the bottom for the overlook.

Our large family went hiking here one afternoon. The trails were very accessible and well maintained. We had some older people with us and they easily managed the hike. The falls are very pretty and there are many beautiful sights.

At the end of a relatively short & flat hike is a nice waterfall. You can also view the waterfall from the upper parking area without having to talk. I would recommend.

Very beautiful place to visit. Falls are amazing!, A must see if you are in area...it's three stories higher than Niagara Falls. Trail signs could be better though We got on the wrong trail.

As others have said, we have had a lot of rain so there is a lot of water rushing through the gorge. I don't think walking through the water is either safe or allowed.

No problems at all! A tiny bit muddy in some areas but the roads are all clear. Perfect time to go because of the extra water!
