This two-mile circuit climbs up the gorge beside the river and circles back to the visitor centre through the forest. We took more than two hours to do the loop because of frequent photo stops. There were red squirrels and lots of chipmunks. There are...More

Went here with our 3 year old grandson and we all had a good time. He enjoyed the climbing and we enjoyed all the scenery. Would highly recommend this place for a nice little family adventure.

The hike to the Flume Forge and back by way of a covered bridge and the “pool” is about 2 miles, but not at all difficult. There are a few slightly uphill sections and lots of stairs in the gorge itself. There wasn’t a lot...More

We spent a few hours walking around the gorge. Word to the wise, go early. The lines can get ridiculous. Its a good place to spend a few hours.

I and my group were really confused about the admission fee. Do we have to pay $16 to enter? Or is the $16 for the 2 minutes bus ride, which we could have saved by 5 minutes walk? I was getting different information. It was...More
