    The trip was stellar. The weather was perfect. There was tremendous water flow. The trails were diverse. Just a great hike.

    Wow, what cool park! The water was up so the falls were spectacular. The trails had lots of variety and the weather was perfect. I just wish more people could have made it out. We'll have to plan another trip here later in the summer.
