Parks and Waterfalls

Not surprisingly for such a scenic and beautiful part of the world, there are a number of State Parks in the Region, and, believe it or not, over 1,000 waterfalls.  Whether you are simply interested is seeing some great scenery, or want to hike, fish or birdwatch, here are a few venues to consider.

The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade.  Rim trails overlook the gorge.
