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.

We started by getting a map at the Discovery Center. Actually right outside there is a small building outside of the Discovery Center that you can go and get a map and more detailed info about trails , etc. We drove just down the road to whirlpool state park to begin our hike. Pay attention to the descriptions of the... More

Gorge Trail System offers challenging sections of steep stairs to climb and rocks to scramble over. Not for the Physically challenge

We set aside one day of our week of vacation in the Niagara area to take this trail. We got there early and started at Whirlpool State Park. We went down the stairs there and went left at the bottom to see the whirlpool. The trail was fairly easy until we got closer to the whirlpool. There are 2 options... More

The gorge is beautiful and a great chance to get away... More
