Rock climbing is exciting especially climbing one inside a national park as Fischer’s Tower is. Hell’s Gate is unique because of the many activities it has, like rock climbing, biking and sight-seeing etc. Hell's Gate National Park is good for a weekend getaway

So this is probably the most basic national park we have been to in terms of animals. The only thing that won us over was the Gorge. We took a guide with us, if you haven't been before then please take a guide. Guides can...More

The place is huge so consider taking a motor vehicle with you. If you are an avid biker, you could go around the park on a bike. However, make sure you build in lots of rest as the roads are rough. The landscape, including the...More
