It was really nice to be close to the Falls from the observation deck. And to hear the roar and the power of the falls was awesome. Disappointed about the view of the falls from the tunnels- really couldn’t see anything. When I go back...More

You can see them from above, from the water but this is most unusual...to see them from behind. A constant rumble of the water as you walk the tunnels. Numerous display boards with lots of info, so take your time and read them. Two tunnels...More

This tour takes you to the tunnels behind the falls and to an observation platform right next to them. I’m not sure why these tunnels were dug, but they were very cool. You get to see the other side of the falls! The best part...More

This was my favorite thing to do in the area. I did the Cave of the Winds as well, but the Journey Behind the Falls gets you behind the falls where you can see and hear the water crashing down. It’s definitely a different perspective....More

Allows you to walk behind the falls, but you don’t see much except a wall o falling water...all for the price of $20. Save your money and take the Hornblower boat ride instead.

The best place we saw was the parking lot for Table Rock. It is about a five minute walk from the parking lot to the entrance of Behind the Falls.

It is best to have slip resistant footwear, with circle-grip outsoles or vibram soles. Much of the time, you will be walking on wet concrete surfaces. Most hi-tech boots would work.
