A well maintained park with everything to do. Camping, hiking etc.

We visited here this past Wednesday and had a great time. $5 parking permit. I went inside and bought the season pass so no more parking fee. There were not a lot of people here... read more

We visited here this past Wednesday and had a great time. $5 parking permit. I went inside and bought the season pass so no more parking fee. There were not a lot of people here but it's that time of year.. We explored a few of the overlooks and enjoyed the scenery but did not go to the bottom. We... More

This park is well-maintained with good signage and great views. The trails that we went on were smooth and many were paved. The only drawback is that on the other side of the gorge is a highway, so there is constant road noise. If you like parks that are natural, secluded and quiet, this isn't the one.

Two days before out trip I learned there was construction on the dam and we could not get a permit to the gorge floor. Disappointed, but I knew the trails would be good, so we made the trip. When we got to the interpretative center we were told, no permits being issued to the gorge floor and. O water was... More

I visited when I was still recovering from a cold so I aimed for the easy hiking trails. From the park's website, I learned that the North Rim and South Rim trails were pretty easy. I did the North Rim hiking trail and can say that it was very manageable. The cold was bothering me so I did not go... More

This park is a jewel for hikers. There are several trails around and down into the gorge. Too, there are more trails across the road from the main park in the day use area. They range from paved and easy to difficult with steep inclines or stairs. The Interpretive Center is a great starting point to get a bit of... More

We visited here last weekend and had a great time. $5 parking, we didn't do the permit to the gorge floor. There were quite a few people here (unexpected) but that didn't cause any problems. We explored a few of the overlooks and went down to the bottom of Hurricane Falls (well, I made it to the bridge and my... More

This is a great park for anyone to visit. There is access to amazing views weather you are wanting a short flat path or wanting to take a more difficult path. We visited here twice during our trip. There are some trails that are dog friendly while others, for their own safety are not so if you plan to take... More

The gorge is a beauty like nothing else in the area. Hiking on the north or south rim gives access to long stairway to the suspension bridge at the bottom of the gorge. Two times a year the gorge has water let out for white water kayaking in April and Nov, fun to watch from Look out #1.

$5 parking. the permit to hike gorge floor is free just have to fill out paperwork. Not crowded in the Winter. The map they give you in the visitor center is not helpful; however you can find your way. start at the North Rim entrance and continue down to overlooks 2 & 3. cross the suspension bridge over the gorge...

There are several overlooks to take in the views of the huge gorge. If you are up for the challenge, take the steps all the way down to the bottom...just be prepared to go back up! But it's worth it at the end.
