Super easy hike! Beautiful & interesting views around every corner. We did the river rafting as well. Over all a great experience. Great for all ages. Can't wait to bring my kids one day!

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.
