  • It is a beautiful gorge. The hiking is amazing and the water scoured boulders, as big as houses, are worth seeing. The river is very powerful and to be respected. I'm still amazing thinking about it. It is both beautiful and scary.
  • Wonderful area to visit. So many amazing sights to see. Fantastic to walk through the park and take in the beauty. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Also very accessible to all fitness levels.
