[Ongoing: Until further notice, Gorge Trail is closed for repairs in the section beyond Mary Campbell Cave.] The upper part of the trail is closed due to blowdown. Gorge Trail provides access to Mary Campbell Cave, an easy half-mile walk from the parking lot. At the start of the trail, a short (half-mile, round trip) section earns accessible status and is good for users with wheelchairs, walkers, canes and strollers. The trail quickly becomes more rugged as it passes through stunning rock-ledge formations. An upper section of the trail is even considered "primitive".

It’s a fantastic trail, but it was closed, which meant rather than looping, we had to do the Glen Trail out and back (and the falls were closed off to foot traffic). When open, it’s a 5 star trail for sure

A large section of the higher part of the trail is closed due to blow downs. Not dog friendly after rain because the rocks are so slippery. Cool trail when open.

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve done. Stunning caves and waterfall. Lots of shades!!! Very good maintained picnic area. Highly recommended.

Most of the trail is closed. Avoid at all costs if you are trying to social distance.

Was a fun trail. Had recently snowed so parts of the path were icy and snow covered. Even then, it was a pretty easy path and trail to follow. I personally was not a fan of seeing the backyards of homes, but being pretty much in the middle of a suburb/city this is to be expected. Would recommend this trail, and I will be back!

Not a very bad trail, there are some really cool rock formations to look at and the waterfall is nice to look at. It's pretty busy for a Sunday and there are lots of dogs. part of the trail was closed off so we had to walk back the way we came from half way through.

Decent trail. I’ll probably come back. It was pretty busy with a lot of traffic, that may be because of it being a Sunday. All around pretty decent trail though.

Nice but a few rough footing spots. Nice observation deck at falls and caves were interesting.

This COULD be one of the best trails in the area, if they would fix & open the upper trail and address some of the foul smells you sometimes encounter on the lower trail. As it is, it is still very interesting and worth doing.

Not a bad hike, but as others have said the upper trail is closed. It is a fairly easy hike but be prepared for tree roots and small rocks.

One of my favorite trails but the upper trails (Mary Campbell Cave to stairs) is closed. Take lower trail out and back.

Would have given it 5 stars if part of the trail wasn’t closed. Still worth hiking and checking it out. I will be back for sure. It was a great way to spend the morning!
