Its a nice walk along the side of the class six rapids down river from the falls. The is a nice spot to sit at the end of the boardwalk or you can go down a level and get very close to edge of the river.

You get to walk on a platform beside the rapids after the falls. Gives you a good idea of the speed and the sound of the water. Was included as part of the tour we did. The old tunnel and elevator is a bit of a hoot too. If you have come all this way worth a look and a... More

A thrilling view of the white water rapids near the Falls, water churning and moving with great speed. This is more of a summer activity as you dont want to slip and fall on ice and end up part of the attraction.

Walking around Niagara Falls and some Fall activities will get you damp and/or wet. So be prepared with a poncho or rainwear. On a hot and steamy day, it's wonderful! This trip is very high on my list. Again, there's some thing for all ages. An absolute must see especially at night.

This short walk along the Niagara River lets you see the raging rapids and some beautiful scenes that you wouldn't otherwise get to see. It was shorter than I expected, but it is self guided so you can take your time and grab some beautiful photos along the way. We also saw some wildlife on the river banks.

This is self guided so you can spend as long as you like. We were here about an hour to walk to the end and back. The bus pick... More

I love this attraction. Seeing those rapids is incredible. Takes time to get on the elevator to go down to see this though.

I really didn't think that much could equal the awesomeness of the falls themselves, but this comes pretty close. The walkway / boardwalk is very well constructed and safe, and it takes you so close to the river! There are informational plaques here and there along the walk, which point out the geology and flora and fauna of the area.... More

the trail should be made a bit better and easier. But once you reach the bottom the view is amazing and worth the hike.
