Cost is $5 per car. Hike down into the canyons -- it is a river bed, so be sure to wear proper sturdy shoes that will keep your feet dry. If limited on time canyons 4 and 5 are best, then drive and park at the overlook (by the playground) to get a scenic overview of a few of the canyons. We completed canyons 4 and 5 plus the overlook in 1.5 hours (and we are a bit out of shape and found it relatively easy) Go early for best parking and less crowds, preferably on weekdays.

Go at a cooler time of year. Very pretty! You must like hiking.

I was worried about visiting after reading one of the [tips], but the canyon is still very scenic. What I found interesting was the "old" observation areas that had obviously fallen into the canyon.

Sorry. Little fun here! Pine trees and kudzu have taken over, so there are very few "open vistas" to be seen. A waste of time and gas money.

Sounds more choked than we recall. Always been on our "Bum Steer Tour;" which requires the right frame of mind to enjoy the inevitable disappointment of your car mates...."Hush now, next stop is Little Niagara Falls!"
