If you came to see the Falls you must go and see the other parks along the Gorge. Devil's Hole is very scenic and allows you to go down below the cliff into the gorge and walk by the river.

Devil's Hole State Park takes you into the Niagara Gorge via a set of semi-improved stairs and a trail that takes you along the river and to Whirlpool State park if you so desire. If you like out of the way fishing places with an excellent chance for catching a reel trophy, bring along a fishing rod and a few... More

I gave this a 5 because of the beautiful fall colors we saw there in late October. Must be in decent shape to go down the stairs to get by the river, but also to get back up them!! I had to stop several times and rest on the way back up (these are uneven rock stairs with no handrails... More

Good view of the dam/power plant and the river. Walkway was good BUT the handicapped spaces are in the middle of the parking area but the fence does not have an access. You have to go all the way to either end. Strange set up.

We hiked down in Whirlpool State Park, then over to this park, back up to the rim trail and back to WSP. I wanted to like it more, but truly all the glory is in WSP, so this part was a bit anti-climactic. When reviewing "What We'd Do Differently" at the end of the day, we both agreed we could... More

There are many miles to hike here and there are very few people using them. If you want to get away from the crowds and walk alongside the river for several miles, check this place out. 5 minute drive from visitors center.

Was in the falls for other stuff and came across the hiking trails at Devil's Hole. We started out at the parking lot for the Whirlpool Trail and took the trail to the end (about 2 miles round trip). Was a great little hike along the water. Not for those individuals who require the assistance of a cane, etc…lots of... More

The park is well kept up, there are clean facilities and picnic tables. Free to enter and park. Access to nice trail along the upper ridge of the Niagara and also stairs to the lower level.

Come on America! Let's clean up and update this park. Be careful on the uneven terrain. Restrooms are outdated. Make sure to walk to the north part to see a good view of the power plant.
