All the trails are gorgeous and awe-inspiring, but can be slippery when wet or leaf covered. Trails may be narrow and rock-covered with hillsides overlooking the gorge. It’s best to wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring walking sticks. You never know what weather can bring, so please dress accordingly.
