The gorge dates to a time the swift waters from an ice age carved out rock and made the Niagara, both falls and river. Do not forget to visit the museum aspect to see the early lakes before they receded to current levels. Or speculate on the end of Niagara Falls. Fascinating geology.

We visited the falls and the Niagara Gorge Trail several times over our few days' stay. The fall colors were just beginning to settle in and this made the area even more beautiful. The rushing water of the river, its vibrant color, and its magnitude were awesome. We visited from both the American and Canadian sides.

I is actually Whirlpool Park you have to cross to reach the meandering gorge trail. Waters rush through steeps and rocks that make whirlpools. A good place to visit and it comes with the Niagara Falls Package.

You can drive the trail & get out of your car & view even closer. It's so amazing & powerful. It's nice because you can follow this on both the Canadian side & American side.

The water is crystal clear, and refreshing knowing that is the water from the falls, everything about the falls is amazing.
