Gorgeous view on a beautiful day. Most parts of the trail were really icy though.

October 2016 - the falls are still pretty dried out from the summer drought but the fall colors were absolutely beautiful! The colors were at peak and the forests was filled with so many beautiful colors! Nice hike for families and even elders

The gorge is worth the drive and the walk. There wasn't much water flowing while we were there, but the gorge was still amazing. I thought the signs about the falling rock was a little much, but then were heard a loud crack and several pieces of shale broke away and dropped into the pool and the bottom of the falls. Parking is limited at the bottom trail head. New bathrooms and information center recently opened the overlook. the upper falls and gorge were worth a look as well.

Easy hike and the trails are always maintained. Best to go during the week, there's always a crowd and sometimes parking can be skinny. The gorge is gorgeous!

because of the draught there is no water on the riverbed or waterfalls, however still a very nice scenic walk through the gorge trail. it is closed halfway through due to landslide, but they created a path through the riverbed to help counter that.
