Really really beautiful, right near the city. You have no idea you are that close to the city. It feels far away in another world. The gorge is very peaceful yet it has a place you can hear echoes across the bridge. Grown ups and kids will have fun. Definitely worth a trip if you're within 30 minute drive.
