AAA Editor Notes

The scenic glen, which drops about 500 feet in 1.5 miles, is highlighted by rock formations and 19 waterfalls; Rainbow Falls is especially lovely. Cliffs rise 300 feet above the stream; a bridge 165 feet above the water spans the glen. Visitors may enjoy a swim in the Olympic-size pool and take guided tours of the gorge in summer.
