It's a beautiful place to hike. We loved visiting in Autumn and look forward to visiting in other seasons as well. You should be careful if you have small children and if you're not really steady on your feet if you do the hike.

We did not plan this part of the trip but decided to take a ride before heading home and this was an experience I will surely never forget. Worth the short drive from the falls.

history is really neat- read up on it before you go. here is a clue: it is legend that the hole is a portal to the spirit world. a former president and indian chief had a chance meeting there.....

...however, I do recommend going to see this park after you've seen Niagara Falls, if there's time. This part of the river is post-Falls, but check out the beautiful jade color. Also, check out the sign on the property that states the history of the location, and the bloody massacre that took place there!

Devils Hole is a vortex or river whirlpool. Not a lot to see here, some construction obstruction. Best part is watching the river jet boats shooting through.

I have been to this park a few times and never tire of its beauty... Is a little hike down and up but can also Ben enjoy from on top if more novice... I take my two young kids and they do just fine with a little supervision. Bring a drink and snack and enjoy the beauty of nature

We love the hiking and the views above and below the gorge. The gorge trail above the river provides views of Canada and the lower Niagara River, all the way to Whirlpool State Park. The walk is about 1.5 miles. The stairs to the river are located behind the stone bathroom building (see picture). These steps descend all the way... More

Nice short stop, 30 minutes, short paved interpretive trail offering signs explaining the formation of the area. Easy walking.

Stunning views of the river as it rages into a whirlpool. Saw 2 red tailed Hawks flying below our lookout point. Great photo op. The tram car was crossing the river when we visited.
