Follow the scenic trails through the oldest natural attraction in the United States and view unique rock formations such as Elephant’s Head, Column Rock, Hyde’s Cave & Jacob’s Well. Take the Inner Sanctum trail that descends deep into the Chasm for riverside views from natural stone walkways, bridges, & stairs and/or stroll along the rim trail for birds-eye views from cliff-side vistas and overlooks.
After a minimum one mile walk you’ll board a raft and float through the narrowest and deepest sections of the chasm. Guides navigate the rafts between the towering cliffs of the Grand Flume, past the Broken Needle and around the Whirlpool Basin while discussing the geology and history of the chasm.
To conclude your tour, hop aboard our trolley for an easy return to the Welcome Center or walk back via the rim trail.
