Indian trail, south rim, lover's lane were all closed which was very disappointing. We were able to walk to the lookouts but gates were up if you wanted to go further. Mask on or off, I really don't care. Most of the reviews getting annoyed at people for mask wearing or not is ridiculous. Get a life people, you're outside.

Not very scenic. We were a week or too late and the good trails were all closed.

The Gorge trail was closed for the season but we took the Indian Trail and it was a very pleasant trail with some peakboo views of the gorge and the foliage was still very pretty but it might be gone in the next 2-4 days. The trail it self was easy with some inclines and some steps. We went early around 8am which was great because the park was basically empty and by the time we left around 10:30 the parking lot was full and it was becoming hard to keep social distancing in some parts of the trail. Most people were wearing masks but some didn’t seem to bother putting one on.

Very scenic. Unfortunately, over half the trail was closed, but I believe we got the better half. if you can I would highly recommend going on a weekday.

From the upper parking gorge trail is closed. You have to take Indian trail and connect to gorge then loop around. Got here at 1 and there was a lot of people all throughout the trails. Beautiful scenery and landscape however too many people in my opinion. Some were complaint with distancing and face masks some ppl were not.

Totally not worthy. You don’t get to see any of the 19 waterfalls. You can only see them on the main trail - Gorge Trail (which is not pet friendly). If you have your dog go to Buttermilk stare park instead.
