  • Great views... Especially at sunset! The kids (10 and 12) had no trouble with the trails. Very good experience for all of us, and we'll be repeating it again!
  • nice view and small trail easy for kids.
  • Great Views and walking trails. The Wampoo trail was short enough for those with smaller kids or there were longer trails for the more intrepid explorers.
  • Enjoy a day wandering around the forest and peak out of it to view the beautiful landscape from high above
  • Stunning views from the falls towards the Mary Valley. Fully wheelchair accessible
