Falls were very pretty but the hike was very crowded and mostly stairs. If you can get there early so you can get permits to go down to the sliding rocks(they only let out 100 a day). The hike to the sliding rocks was a lot of Boulder crawling and definitely a challenge. The sliding rocks were a lot fun and very smooth. Be careful when swimming around in the pool at the bottom it goes from very deep to very shallow quickly and there are some sharp rocks at the down river. Sliced my foot on one of the rocks, and a ranger was down relatively quickly and was helpful. Even after cutting open my foot I would go to the sliding rock area at the gorge again, but next time I'll keep my sandals on while I swim.

Had a great time with the family, all the stairs were a bit much for the 6 year old.

Loved it! Love the waterfall and bridge. The stairs killed me going back up. I saw families with little kids, to me it is too dangerous for little kids.

This was a great family trail. The climb out of the gorge is not for the faint of heart. It is a good workout. However there are numerous places to stop and rest during the climb. Enjoyed the views of the gorge. A great day trip.

there are a lot of trails depending on your skill level and interest. Getting a gorge floor permit is required if you want to hike the gorge floor. they only issue 100 permits a day, first come, first serve. IF there has been a recent heavy rain or there is a forecast for rain/tstorms, best to call ahead. They may not be able to tell you 100% if it is open day before, but can give you an idea. in spring/summer weekends, the permits are often gone by 11am.

I prefer to skip the stairs and access via silding rock trail. It is a very rustic trail, but the views are spectacular. you WILL be crossing the river either way - from the stairs, you rock hop, or if coming from Sliding Rock Trl, you cross above Bridal Veil Falls (a fun slide) HIGHLY recommend bringing a drybag or sturdy ziplock bags for any electronics and shoe that have good traction. NOT a hike for flip flops!
