  • Loved the adventure! We visited this beautiful attraction on a weekend away. We did the adventure trail which was a fun, at times a little scary, adventure. Our guide Alex was outstanding. She was there to guide us through some of the more challenging parts of the adventure trail. My husband is 65 and I am 62 and we had no problem completing the course however we are both very active in our normal lives. The views are incredible. The boat float was fun and rim trail back from the boat float had beautiful views of the chasm. There are several choices of activities based on your comfort level at the chasm. Hope to be back again to do it all over!
  • So much fun!! There is a lot of stuff to do, whether you want to hike on land, go tubing in the water, or go over bridges in the air on the Adventure Trail. The guides are knowledgeable about the chasm and share a lot of interesting info. It's a great place to go for a weekend with family and friends and explore all the activities it has to offer. The cafe doesn't have a ton of options, so I recommend bringing snacks with you and enjoying local food options in the area.
