      I plan to start at the main entrance and hike to the Mile Point Bridge and then return the hike back to the main entrance. Approximately how long do you think it would take? Can you get into the park at like 6am? I was thinking of doing the hike early. Thanks for your help!

      by NSILVA Online Now Jul 27, 2010 at 12:16 PM

      How long is the Gorge Trail? Also I would like to know how long it takes to hike the distance to the North Entrance. I will be with three Kids 8yrs,6yrs,and 3yrs old. I am thinking of hiking to the North Entrance and taking the shuttle bus back to the main entrance. I just want to estimate how long it would take. Is the hike very sunny during the hot summer months? Is it better to to do the hike when the sun is not too strong?

      Thanks for any information you can give me.
