“Pure, raw wilderness with insane rapids and waterfalls. Went on a 4 day hike through there and there is no other place like it on earth.”

“Great trails, great signage, incredible scenery. HIGHLY recommend for any outdoor enthusiast in the area!”

“Amazing visitor center and picnic area. Clean, well maintained. Variety of hikes for different skill levels. Can spend an hour plus alone just in the visitor center. Great history of this area.”

“My husband and I went on a second honeymoon to Sapphire Valley. We went to Gorges State Park for a hike to see waterfalls. Be sure to stop at the ranger station. They are great at giving instructions and a map for the different waterfalls to walk to.”
