In 2004, the 240ft Suspension Bridge was constructed over the gorge – directly in front of the waterfalls. The boardwalks to the bridge also access public washrooms, courtyard with fountain, ice cream/snack shop, seating area, and additional boardwalks with viewing platforms.
Admission fees give access to the Suspension Bridge gorge area directly in front of the Waterfalls… plus the High Mountain Patio washrooms, snack shop, seating areas. Boardwalks, trails, Viewing Decks and Plank Stairways tame the gorge’s steep terrain and allow you to get up close to the two-stage waterfalls (about 7 minutes walk from the highway parking).
There are parking lots on both sides of Hwy 1. The larger lot at the Hot Pools reception can accommodate tour buses and large RVs. From there, cross over the highway on the new pedestrian overpass and walk (7 minutes) up the mountain trail on a gentle incline. Visitors from all over the world come to hear the roar (and feel the mist) of the waterfalls from this 73M ribbon-type suspension bridge.
