The valley has known human hand and voice for 10,000 years. Floodplains nourished the Native farmer; waterfalls drew the Victorian vacationer. Today, a 70,000-acre park welcomes those who seek the outdoors. The area is rich in both cultural and natural history. The river valley contains streams, waterfalls, geologic features, a diversity of plants and wildlife, and traces of the past. Popular activities include canoeing, rafting, fishing, picnicking, hiking and camping. Portions of the trail can be navigated by wheelchair. Visitors are encouraged to visit the park’s website or call for updated information, maps, and directions before visiting.
