Definitely worth a visit, but be sure to have good shoes for walking! The little church in the rocks was delightful

Came for an afternoon walk at the gorge. Very nice place to see not so hot. Footpath could be marked better. A good activity to do the afternoon when it's not to hot. Great place to stop and relax
