200 + steps start and finish from the parking area but the hike and canyon are gorgeous! Saw a number of anglers while hiking. Be prepared in fall/winter months as the sun may not reach the bottom of the canyon.

This was our access point to the Morrow Point Boat Tour, which I could not more highly recommend. The National Park Service runs the tour, and gave a rousing account of how a narrow-grade railroad was built down at the bottom of the canyon (which...More

After going down a couple hundred steps this trail is level with the Pine Creek. We were the only ones on this trail. Follow along and take the Nat's Park boat trip. Boat trip starts early June. Out and back trail.

Take the boat ride up the river. Well worth the $24. Park ranger gave us a great time. Learned all about the history. Must be able to walk about a mile and on the way back climb 240 steps back to the parking lot

The Morrow Point Boat Tour was beautiful and well worth the 232 steps (and 3/4 mile walk) to get there! Do make reservations well in advance.

The Pine Creek trail is the same trail you take to the Morrow Point Boat Rides. You have to make reservations for the boat trip as they will not take anyone who just shows up. If you just want to walk the trail down to...More
