Comments, Notes: As of october of 2014, you could see there has been a lot of renovations to the park. However, the trail itself is in need of maintenance and repair. Use caution as you will be walking close to the edge of the gorge. The railings are old and broken, so do not rely on them for safety. There is a couple of overlooks, as well as a couple of stairs that lead you down closer for viewing from above. Sources are saying this is approximate 40 feet. At the very top is a flume type falls, not large, and then you have the next drop. Following that a short distance further down is another drop. All the photos are on my website. I believe there may have been another drop, but we could not access climbing down from top, or climbing up from the bottom. Offers camping and picnic facilities
