Description

Rushing, gushing water has carved a half mile of a deep, narrow gorge with endless waterfalls and breathtaking views. The hike is short and easy, but keep young ones close as one bad slip could be devastating. Shortly after leaving the parking lot, you'll enter the gorge. Continue up the gorge exploring it's deep slits until you reach an area where the river flattens out. It's pretty clear when you've seen it all, and it's a lot!

Short Hike: Park along 61 or in the Temperance River State Park.

Beautiful hike! If you keep going after the gorge for another .5 mile the falls are well worth seeing.

Icy - First half is smooth sailing with dried mud and small patches of ice. Second half of the trail is pretty sketchy with the ice and uneven terrain. We had to turn back
