  • The view is absolutely amazing, especially if you have the opportunity to go on a guided raft ride tour. It's also calming and relaxing to take a walk through the trails and really enjoy nature...  more »
  • There's definitely more to do here than just take the easy hike and so we decided to get adventurous. We were attracted to this canyon by the Adventure Tour. We were expecting some cool views of the canyon from foot bridges, but were pleasantly surprised that it was a lot more of a fun challenge. It is very safe and very cool. You are clipped into a safety cable the whole time and are either scaling the canyon walls or crossing on cable bridges over the raging waters below. The first bridge is only a single cable so you start with a high wire act! After that, you can choose to do rafting or tubing along the lazy river. The wait for tubing and rafting was over 1 hour, but that was expected because of the busiest long weekend. And not to forget, had a great time on their rappelling adventure. Thanks to Tim, Joe, and Dan for a great time. I recommend the rappelling even if you are a little scared. The guys will get you through it and in no time you'll find yourself having a great time. We will surely be coming back for another round.
  • Awesome views. Hiking trails for everyone from easy to hard. 2 shuttle bus stops to bring you back to the Welcome center. Cafe available with food which was reasonable & delicious. Good selection of high quality souvenirs. The easy trail still provides great views.
