About the Self-Guided Tour

There are no fees for the self guided tour of the Canyon.

It is open year round.

There are 6 bridges to the tour.

Hiking timing approximately 1 hour one way.

The walk using the 1st and 2nd bridges is the most frequently hike: round trip time of 15 min.

The walk is not handicap-equipped though our restaurant certainly is.

Footwear is something to consider; much of the walk is on rather smooth rock that, in summer, wet or dry, can be a little slippery. In winter it is slippery.

Ice walks in the winter are spectacular – but we are not open then. For ice tours contact the guiding companies in the paragraph above can help you explore the canyon in it's ice-covered splendour.
