It's a beautiful nature trail that takes you right down to the Niagara River. There are lots of steps and in places it's a bit steep but never scary. Most people can do it just fine. No need to be an athlete, just take your time and be careful. Once you're at the river, you'll be treated to amazing views.

Can be hot if walking too long in the sun. My kids are not into too much of a nature walk so we didn't walk too long.

We stopped here on our way to Fort Niagara. Again what can I say, it was beautiful. Wish we would have had more time here.

On the north side of the state park, you can find a trail or two that go all the way down to the river. Worth doing if you like hiking.

I think we went at a bad time. Things still looked a little rough due to the winter months. I would try to go during summer months maybe things will look a little better and the trail will be picked up by then.

I go here all the time, I love everything about it. The freedom, The adventure, The thrill. Climbing into the gorge where used to be an old place where the British threw off horses, is a magical experience. Besides the fact the stairs are on a complete slant. I still recommend it. It takes about an hour to get to... More

My family and I decided to take a hike and noticed some stairs so we took them to the bottom which is about 12 flights. Coming back up is tough but when you are down there it is wonderful and peaceful.
