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 Restrooms are outdated.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.

My husband and I parked our truck ( free parking) and started our ride on the trails along the gorge. The scenery was amazing and the ride was a challenge but not too difficult. We rode down to goat island and had a great afternoon

Kinda hard to find the trail that lead to path. There are a ton of stairs with no rail. Better be in good shape to see this attraction.

Well the way i want to start off is how HORRIBLE the steps were going down they were the worst ever and you can barely see the rapids if you want to go here to break a limb do it.

We started the trail at Whirlpool state park and hiked to Devils Hole, there are some spray painted signs to the parking lot but we were a little confused about where exactly the "hole" was.. lol! We hiked back the rim trail and it was gorgeous! For beautiful state parks the signs could be a bit better on the trail... More

I should have counted all the stairs we climbed down to the trail and back up again! Quite a workout if you are not accustomed. Wear good hiking shoes and the "stairs" are rocks. Some very uneven. But well worth the effort. Beautiful vistas and nice trail along Niagra River.
