Was concerned about price, walkway between cliffs was beautiful. Loved the views, restaurant and gift shop. This attraction is well worth the price!

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
