Vermilion River and Tokumm Creek are an unforgettable milky turquoise. In summer, the trail is often fringed with wildflowers.

When crossing the first bridge, the canyone is at its widest. Stroll along the trail, you can see the river disappearing ahead into the limestone rock, which has been chiselled and carved over the centuries by the rushing waters.

Then at the second bridge, the canyon is at its narrowest and 17 meter deep. Peer down at the ferns and mosses growing on the canyon walls, the mist creates a lush, damp environment.The deepest portion s of the canyon are at the sixth and seventh bridges, both at a dizzying 36 meters. The seventh bridge offers an impressive views of the rumbling, 21-meter waterfall plunging into a foaming, turquoise pool at the very start of the canyon.
