  • So I have mixed feelings about this place. On one hand the waterfalls are beautiful (which you can see from the road), the trails are nice, lots of stairs like they say, the raft ride was 20mins (pret...  more »

  • This was a beautiful sight to see, and will take you about 3 hours. I thought the attraction was larger, but it's only 2 miles long. We camped at the campground and walked down the street to the chasm...  more »

  • Tucked in a quiet unassuming town, this is nature's amusement park. It is a really marvellous stop for family friendly fun with options like hikes,bouldering,rafting and fishing. This place is ticketed, runs shuttle from various locations and has a modest cafe. I recommend packing snacks from home as the city doesn't have much to offer. Also, check the weather before signing up for the activities.
  • Beautiful Site of nature! It's Amazing. The tour is great. Good for all ages. Get wet or stay dry. Be prepared. It's great!
  • This place is beautiful and has loads of things to do. Even if you're just stopping for lunch overlooking the chasm, it's not far off the thruway and is very peaceful. For those looking for more, there are all sorts of activities appropriate for the whole family ranging from a nature walk to rafting.
  • Looked cool. Called ahead, was told everything was opened. They closed things 20 minutes before my arrival and I ended up with a car of unhappy kids. In short, they can and will close without notice and won't warn you over the phone ahead of time if there's a risk of it happening.
  • Lovely views, plenty of options for all types of people. Hiking, rafting, rope bridges, deep rock cliffs. Easy holes for young kids, more challenging routes for adventure lovers.
