Really great views, worth seeing as well as Niagara Falls itself. Looks really good in the morning with the sunrise.

This was a great place to stop and hike. There are several trails - check the difficulty level before you start because some of them are pretty difficult! But the scenery is beautiful, there are bathrooms, and no admission fee. Also worth a stop if...More

We were with a tour, and I would have stayed and walked a little slower if we were on our own. It was really beautiful there.

The waters are really amazing to see. It is really a whirlpool and the water is extremely dangerous. There is a trolly that will take you over the whirlpool.

We walked to this park and rode the free shuttle back to the Falls. The walk was moderate and the views were fantastic...better than just standing at the top and looking down. Get down to the river level and really get an eye full!

The whirlpool is an amazing thing. All the water from Niagara Falls comes down the river and hits the bank in the curve of the river, creating this whirlpool. You can watch the water and imagine the force involved. Really impressive to see.

They are all connected as a trail. If you start at Whirlpool State Park, you can go either way...toward the falls or Devil's Hole. If you want to walk down Devil's Hole leave a minimum of three hours for experienced hikers... More
