  • This area is one of the most popular rock climbing areas in the entire region with over 1400 established routes including both traditional and sport climbing routes.

  • The river is often considered one of the best whitewater rafting rivers in the country.

  • President Jimmy Carter signed legislation to add this area into the National Park System in 1978.

  •  One of the most recognizable features in this area is a 3,030 foot steel bridge. For many years this bridge was the world's longest steel single-span arch bridge but it has since been surpassed.

  • Other popular outdoor activities include fishing as the warm river water is home to a diverse fish population and hiking as the park provides over 50 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
