Although I have lived in Buffalo my entire life, I have never hiked the Whirlpool path to Devil's Hole! I am so glad I finally did! Breathtaking views along the way and once you get down the many steps you feel as if it is just you, the gorge and the rapids. A must do on your summer list!

Check out this whirlpool that goes in the wrong direction! It's amazing! At night when they turn down the flow of the Falls, the whirlpool actually stops! Amazing!

Thank goodness we saw a review on Trip Advisor because we would never have known about this great trail! We followed a suggestion and it was awesome! We took the Whirlpool trail to Devils Hole then the Rim Trail back to the Whirpool parking lot! Great Trail, Steep, You need hiking shoes, water and a few snacks. Sit and enjoy... More

Gives you an up close look at a Class 6 Rapids without the fear of drowning or getting wet. After an elevator ride down to the base of the cliff and river, it's a 1/2 mile walk down a boardwalk to the site of some amazing water rapids.

If you missed this it would have been okay! The only thing the tour guide talked about was the Canada side and how they have all the GREAT things that we don't have. It was fun to watch the cable car from the other side!

I liked to spent some time watching the whirlpool and hearing all the stories about it. I disliked all the bushes in front of the terrace, maybe they can cut them a little bit to have a better view.

This is another state park that we visit all year round. There are the usual amenities; picnic tables, restrooms (seasonal), natural history room (seasonal), and, of course, a wonderful overview of Niagara's Whirlpool and Standing Wave. Once the ice is gone and the stairs reopened it is a great experience to walk down into the gorge and experience the Niagara... More
