    Cool views, easy hike. Be sure to hike to both the upper and lower falls. Nice picnic area available with access to potable water.

    Great hike, lot of stairs! The views are worth it. Take water, seeing too many people hiking without water.

    You can go beyond the platforms at the top ro get different views and be more secluded from your fellow hikers. Watch your step!

    Great time to visit (spring), the water flow is heavy and a spectacular sight. May not be able to park in parking lot due to poor road conditions, but only a short jog from the main sign.

    Make sure you walk down the staircases to the bottom for the best views.

    Neat views, if you look towards Chimney Rock National Monument you can see it on a clear day.

    Very cool place, give yourself plenty of time. We could only do half the park, going southwest to northeast. The park does close at night and if you think you can steal any wood, good luck, they have search stations at the gates.

    Well taken care of trail, many birds and small lizards. Watch for rattle snakes!! As you get to the hill areas look for fosils on the ground and in the mounds.

    Steep trail in areas. Definitely busy! If you are the type of person who hates it when others do not follow the rules posted on signs you will hate it when make it to the pools. The sign says not to swim in the pools, but of course, you will see plenty of people doing this anyway.

    3 months ago

    Very neat trail, very busy. If you want to walk in the river and go further make sure you plan. Take good water shoes and trekking poles (I would suggest two trekking poles per person). The poles come on handy because you cannot see in the river at all. There are many rocks, "ankle breakers" beware! If you have small children or infants, keep in mind carrying them may result in hurting your child severely.

    Overall, not too hard to get down if you are an able bodied adult. Take shorts, unless you like wet jeans. We didn't make it to the end, but we will definitely be back.

    Nate Heffron reviewed Capitol Gorge to Tanks Trail

    3 months ago

    Near trail, start earlier in the day so it's not so hot. Bring water, I can't express this enough. I saw several people on the trail with no water. We even gave some away because we were concerned.

    Fairly flat trail with high canyon walls. As you get towards the end your climb on top of the canyon via a trail. The trail is nearly non existent going up and on the top of the canyon. Carefully traverse the trail, many opportunities to fall or twist an ankle.

    Once you get to the tanks, they are okay, little dirty. Be careful near them, falling in would probably not kill you, but due to the martial the walls are made of you may have a very difficult time getting out.

    Intresting fact, if you look at the canyon walls as you go towards the tanks you will see some metal rods pretruding from the wall. Wasn't sure what these were. After talking to a ranger, I found out that the canyon was once used for a roadway and a telephone line was installed along these metal rods. But due to the frequent washouts the maintenance became to expensive. Not to mention the modern-day roads played a factor in abandoning this former practice.

    Nate Heffron reviewed Hickman Bridge Trail

    Confusing trail, but pretty neat. You feel like you are on a different planet. The hike is up hill 60% of the time, but not too bad. Keep an eye open for all the sites along the trail (arches) there are also many different features that might trick you in to thinking you found the Hickman Bridge. This feature is enormous, you will know when you get to it.

    Hiked summer 2017, very cool. Pay attention to the warnings don't become a victim due to stupid planning.This means rain and washouts!

    Worth the hike, not too hot but water is a must. Some wildlife can be seen, small lizards, Jack Rabbits etc.

    Definitely take some time to relax at the Gifford House. Neat little shop with homemade products. Water is also located here.

    Near this area is a large well maintained greenspace area with well fed wild deer. Be careful not to get too close.

    Another neat fact, but not necessarily associated with this trail is, during the fall this park operates a huge orchard. You can walk in and eat as much as you want (not the best, but traditional farm orchard from back in the day) or you pay to pick larger quantities.

    Awesome hike, very easy. I have hiked this trail at leat four times. If you don't like hiking the same way you came in park a bike on one end and take the paved road back. Watch for cars!
