Beautiful scenery. Pretty busy when I went on Columbus Day weekend. Lots of steps but other than that a very easy trail.

Beautiful but very crowded place! We went there after days of heavy rainfall and the water was pretty muddy, which spoiled the views a little, but we loved it anyways.

Absolutely LOVE this place. We stayed in Oneida village. Very peaceful and spacious. Will definitely be coming back soon!

The scenery itself was amazing!!!! However, a narrow trail combined with way too many people made this a hike that was just not enjoyable.

Been here twice. The first time I came was in the winter and the Gorge was closed due to fallen trees from a storm. We went on the Indian trail and sort of climbed down into the gorge from there and snuck in. Seeing it in the winter when there was no one ese around was pretty magical. Came again in the summer and it was definitely crowed but still just as beautiful.
