There is a paved path that will lead you around the park and along the American side of the Niagara. The best trails are down some stairs...there are a lot of them. When you reach the bottom the water of the river is the most amazing green. Enjoy!

Niagara Gorge Trail is an absolutely gorgeous place to visit and explore in the Autumn when all the trees are changing colors! The views of the gorge and Niagara River are breathtaking!

Great walking experience on top of the gorge rim. Started at the discovery center. Follow unpaved paths, asphalt, mowed lawn, a bridge. The trail follows the contour of the gorge downstream and connects to parks and spur special trails. Great views on the gorge and river. Walk it, do not drive it.

This hike has the option of shorter out and back hikes. or longer circuitous routes. You can get right up to the water and will avoid any crowds here. The nicest routes have a 200 step descent to the river's edge, but the hikes themselves are not dangerous

this is NOT for the family with very young children, unless they are used to a hike. The maps and trails are not marked very well, but it's hard to get lost. Make sure to take lunch and water. We hiked all the way down to the river's edge and stuck our feet in the water and watched the jet... More

It was a really nice stroll at the end of the day, I walked it with music playing in my ears and at one of the view points just zoned out from reality and truly relaxed enjoying the view for about half an hour, really beautiful trail.

The trail shares great views and scenery, I've been on this trail both in the summer (today) and in the Fall. It is much more BEAUTIFUL in the Fall. Come dressed and prepared for the hike.
