Dieser Weg in der Uina-Schlucht ist vor allem mit Kindern gut zu gehen und über die gesamte Strecke spannend. Ohne Kletter-Ausrüstung bleibt man am besten auf dem Hauptweg und dreht dort, wo der Abenteuerweg wieder einmündet - oder geht noch ein paar Hundert Meter weiter - ganz nach Belieben. Noch ein Tip: Nicht zu früh am Morgen starten, denn dann fällt die Sonne schön in die Schlucht und auf den Bach.
