Description

The Angel Falls Rapids Trail is parallel to the river and is well shaded. It is an easy trail aside from a very few slick and rocky areas that should be navigated carefully. The view of the Angel Falls Rapids are beautiful. The boulders where the rapids rush between do not look that big from the overlook. If you opt to take the steep path down to the edge of the rapids, it's amazing to see how big those boulders actually are!

Great trail, prefect for a young family or those looking for something a bit easier. It is level, wide and offers wildflowers and river views.
