Super easy, flat with wide trails and beautiful views of the river. Quite enjoyable for the region. Was confused by multiple Pier 4 signs, but keep on going to the end for a peaceful, pretty view! Spent 2 hours here, with plenty of time for sitting and watching the rapids.

Nice trail. Not really waterfalls. They are more like cascades.

Hiked the gorge the other day. Generally icy but super manageable, no special gear needed. Beautiful walk with high reward, not a lot of effort required. Make sure to climb down to the piers and explore, as well as go beyond the third pier!

Nice well kept trail, and we were lucky enough see some beautiful fall colors along with great views of the river.

Kept in excellent condition but you do need to heed where you walk. Very impressive views of the rapids; especially seeing the white water rafters. Looked like a lot of fun. We walked on a hot day but much shade and access to the water. Great hiking time.

Very nice hike with views of the woods, river, rapids, and waterfalls. We didn’t hike to the very end of the trail as the path was overgrown. $9.00 fee for park.

It was a fairly nice trail and the rapids were quite a sight, however after you passed the rapids there wasn’t much else to see except for the river. But the dogs enjoyed it and so did I :)

Did this hike with my wife and daughter and loved it. Beautiful scenery, not too difficult (wife was 5 months pregnant when we did it). Will definitely be doing it again.

A good trail for you and your dog. River is very powerful and in the summer time people go rafting here which is amazing to see. If it’s raining some of the massive rocks on the trail can be slippery.
