I am a local and this is one of my favorite starting points for a great walk. The park is kept neat and tidy, bathrooms are seasonal, and they provide drinking bowls for the four-legged friends that visit. You get a great view of the whirlpools and Canadian gondola ride. It's a 1/2 walk to Devil's Hole Park. Wear sturdy shoes if you go down to the river.

Good amount of parking; decent bathroom. This is where the gorge trail began. Nice hike, but you must watch your step.

We didn't know whether to stop here or not....but ever so glad we did. It is something to see and read about. Words can not discribe the experience and feeling we got when we were here. Truely is something you have to experience for yourself. What Mother Nature does is hard to believe at times. You even get an eerie feeling too. You will not be sorry if you decide to stop here as we did. Matter of fact... we came back to this area for a second time. Just hard to believe what we are seeing right before our eyes.

The views from this park to the river are wonderful. Easy walking paths down to the river and beautiful views.
