  • 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.
  • We spent a Saturday enjoy this beautiful place. It was an extra busy day, so the lines were long, but the staff did a great job working efficiently to keep everyone moving as best they could. The tubing down the chasm was definitely worth it. Great way to enjoy God's beautiful creation! There were many photo opportunities along the way as we hiked back and forth. Will recommend it to folks who are passing through the area!
  • Must do! Adventure trail is awesome but don’t go if you’re scared of heights , over weight, or any disabilities. You’ll have to be able to pull yourself up. It’s awesome tho. Tubing over rafting- skip rafting. Make sure you can swim if need. It was hard to give this five stars and hardly anywhere is 5 stars worthy, but the adventure trail won me over. But this place needs to expand the adventure trail. It looks like it used to be longer, but for the price is should be longer. But it’s awesome. The food stand needs to have better food. It’s pretty bad food
  • Truly a beautiful location. I stopped on my way back from Montreal to NYC. The area is close off the highway, so it's a great stop! Would recommend checking out the underground railroad museum while you're there
