  • Beautiful park. Well kept. Not crowded and no littering. Suspension bridge is awesome and the trails are easy. Some steep areas but very manageable. Looks and feels and smells like heaven. Maybe 1.5 hours to do all walks and trails but leave more time to view the beautiful scenery and falls
  • Nice hike broke into manageable pieces. Trails were well groomed with enough room for everyone walking. Great place to get a photo with a gigantic tree.
  • Great walking options. Bridge and falls are only a short walk in for those not looking for a marathon hike. but it has several trails that take you further up the river if you wish to go longer.
  • Always love camping here... feels like we are out in the bush.. but close enough to civilization if needed.
  • The bridge is quite cool, but the park is also very developed. Extremely well maintained trail. Not a lot of rugged nature to be seen.
