Beautiful canyons and waterfalls. Worth the stairs!

Difficult in spots with so many steps! But it's pretty awesome!

Large gravel perimeter trails connected to wonderful dells areas. Please bring a large trash bag and help cleanup all the trash left from low class visitors. There is a shocking amount of garbage, shoes, socks, plastic and other items left in this park. It is really a shame and the park should at least provide a few garbage cans on the main trails.

The trails are fun but the maps are outdated and the trails are not clearly marked with the trail names. however the waterfall wading hole makes up for it all. Not enough parking in main parking lot. had to use overflow parking which was 2 miles away.

Due to rains and fiscal matters, the upper dells trail was closed, but the lower dells were great.
