Safety – How safe is the tourist attraction?
How Stean Gorge is a natural, rugged wonder and features a maze of walkways over different surfaces including rocks and sloping footpaths which have been carved into the ravine. The rocks near the water are always slippery and suitable footwear is essential. We supply hard hats which we recommend you wear to explore the gorge and cave.
During periods of wet weather the water levels can rise and make a dramatic scene to view. We recommend children are to be we supervised at all times.
