When you see such a marvelous beauty as this site, how can anyone doubt that their is a GOD! Seeing those Class VI rapids were breathtaking!! Then, the real highlight was the whirlpool caused by the merging of all the waters of the Niagara River to the neck of Lake Ontario. Our tour guide with Greyline Tours (Prady) did an... More

Get away from the crowds and experience the sights, sounds, flora and funa of the Niagara River. The trail takes in the Falls, and three State Parks (Niagara Falls, Whirlpool, and Devils Hole) and is an excellent way to experience the geology up close and personal without hordes of visitors. The trail itself is easy for all ages and abilities.... More

We started at the Discovery Center, rode the elevator down, and hiked the gorge. Wear comfortable shoes, use hiking sticks and be ready to use your hands to pull yourself up over some rocky areas. This is not recommended for any one who will end up carrying a small child or two out of the gorge because they cannot climb... More

Great areas for hiking, biking, walking from Devil's hole all the way to the falls. Picnic areas, bathrooms, nature center and aquarium across from each near the falls. The entire area has been updated and renovated, with one side of the Robert Moses Parkway devoted exclusively to bike and foot traffic. Walk along the edge of the gorge on a... More

serene and the geology of the place behind the gorge is spell binding. We could see the wheel jet tours having fun. Will be back for that ride

We did this walk as a part of our day trip to the falls. It's nice to see more than just the falls. We enjoyed the river and rapids. You need to be able to walk a ways.

Great view of the river and shoreline downstream from the falls. Not a whole lot to it but worth adding to the bottom of your list if time allows.

This is my favorite hike of all time...what a view of the gorge, and as close as you are to the falls, you would never know by how quite and peaceful this trail is. A hidden gem!
