Beautiful scenery and waterfalls. Insane stairs if you want to make the whole loop. It’s only dog friendly for a small part; they aren’t allowed to go past a certain point. $5 to park. It’s worth it, but probably better to leave the dog home to get the most out of it.

Beautiful views. Relatively easy except for the stairs leading into and out of the gorge where it can be a little trying if you're out of shape.

Great views, multiple overlooks and LOTS of stairs. Go early if you want to avoid crowds of people.

Five great overlooks of the Fall. Easy hike for all ages. Great picnic area. if you hike past the second overlook, you'll end up at the bottom of the river. Romantic area to sit by the water. Will go back to climb the stairs and go across the bridge to the other side.

Well maintained, beautiful scenery. Gift shop with bathrooms. Definitely NOT “easy” if you opt to go down to the suspension bridge and down to the bottom of the gorge on the stairs - so many stairs.

Excellent trail for all ages. Beautiful views. The walk down into the gorge and the climb up is somewhat taxing but well worth it!

Visited the trail last weekend. Great interaction center with film showing the history of the area. Guide at desk gave us the best path to do part of the North loop followed by Hurricane Bridge then South loop. Multiple great views of the river, cliffs and dam. 1100 steps but worth it.

Great views but not so much of a trail, just stairs to climb really.

Beautiful views, well maintained trails! Well worth the $5. parking fee!!! Some strenuous stair climbing for athletes, and easy to moderate trails for others. Plenty of places to stop and take in the gorgeous views! Dogs are allowed on leash, not allowed down in the gorge. Bring WATER for everyone, including pets!
