Awesome views of Devil's Hole, huge whirlpool on the river. Nice quite walking trails and places to have a picnic. Well maintained.
Do this first because it is a buildup to the falls, but not able to match the falls. You will have to walk down the path to see it. There are bathrooms and a visitor center, but not very handicapped friendly. Mostly old blacktop path with a few stairs to get there. Not a big attraction for me.
Scenic hike along the Niagara River between the falls and the Lewiston power plant. You can stay up top or go down along the river, but the health of those walking is a factor. It can be difficult for older or obese individuals along the river as it's a true hike with roots, rocks, and lots of stairs back up... More
Yes, there is a path(actually several to choose from) as you descend. Wear gym shoes vs. flip flops. You can hike all the way down to the river, or along the gorge. Free parking. Limited signage, but great foliage and scenery.
All State parks on the US side were pet friendly. We were able to take our dogs on the trails. The Canadian side is not as pet friendly. We found out a week before we left for our trip that Pit Bulls are banned and changed our plans to stay on the US side. Glad we did!
Very nice area. Great overview. It's free! The actual Devils Hole going into the gorge is at times slippery, the stairs are stone and I'd recommend no small children to take the hike, elderly people who aren't "fit" or anyone else that may have medical issues. It's easier to get down then to climb back up! But it's a fun... More
Clean park, good over look. Small educational room was nice. No fee to park. Canada side is better because they have the trolley that goes across the river.
All I can say is take water and good shoes. The hike is pretty but narrow trail and one wrong slip can land you in the river. It's a lot of stair made out of rock on the way back up... A LOT if stairs. Look for black squirrels while there. They're beautiful!
