Just wanted to make a correction. Dogs are NOT allowed on the trails. Did not want to hike without the pooch so we did not.

Nice network of well-marked trails around the chasm, with lots of nice vistas. Trails range from easy to moderate. Trails are part of a private business with fees for using the property, rafting and tubing, as well as an adventure course.

My son (9yrs) and I did this trail and the tube ride it was beautiful and I highly recommend it! Beautiful view, in a more than relaxing environment, with some dose of excitement. GET OUT AND PLAY!!

Beautiful, and a wonderful hike for all ages! Many stunning views along the way. My 9 year old daughter absolutely loved our hike in the Chasm. We did the Inner Sanctum trail and stopped to take in the views along the way. If you're a local, you get a discount off the admission price as well.

Beautiful views of a natural land formation-rocks and river. Several activities available as well as more challenging mountain rappelling and rock climbing.
