Moderately difficult walk down a rock staircase, along the Niagara River and a good look into the huge gorge. Fresh and clean tasting air are worth the steep climb down. Absolutely invigorating experience. Take 2-3 hours if you want to savor the air and watch the rapid water rushing past.

This whirlpool is located in a gorge a few kilometers ahead of the falls. Definately worth a visit, the area itself has all amenities and a barbecue area good for a day of relaxing.

So you are at the falls and on tripadvisor looking for other things to do... how about you drive/bike the few minutes away and visit this place. You won't die from taking time from your precious life to view another angle of the great river that divides two countries. As a geologist it's spectacular, as a human it's humbling. From... More

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.
