Walked the trail down to the Whirlpool. Lots of steps but very worth it to see the swirling water and a river with one side flowing the opposite way. Never had seen that before! Must check out the trails when you are in the area.

If you are looking to get away from the touristy stuff and some of the people this is a good hike to do. Follow the path and take the american gorge trail-there are some great views as you wind down to the river and see the falls

Unfortunately due to the ongoing repair of the paths we could not really see the whirlpool. You used to be able to stand overlooking it, but not anymore. I know, safety first.

The Niagara Gorge Trail is a must-do, especially if you have a bike. The bike trail leading to it consists of two lanes of a former highway, that you will basically have to yourself. The trail itself offers terrific views of the rapids and doesn't require a high fitness level.

We spent 3 ½ hrs hiking the Niagara Gorge Rim, Whirlpool Rapids and Devils Hole trails starting at noon and ending at 3:30 on a Wed in mid July. Then we headed over to the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds. The timing was great. We probably saw less than 20 people the entire hike and we... More

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.
