The terrain around the Gorge is rocky, with little brush. As a result, make sure you’re wearing good shoes and that you bring plenty of sunscreen. You won’t find many trees to take cover under. Remember to grab the map at the gate and take yourself on the self-guided tour. You’ll learn about the history of the area and be given insider facts others might not get to know.

The Best Time to Visit

Spring time is the best time to visit this park. Snow is melting and the water is in full force. You’ll see the waterfall gushing, as well as the gorge below rocking with large billows of water. Talk to a park ranger if you want to go white water rafting, as there are strict guidelines for activities in the gorge.
