Devil's Hole is great for hiking. It's an average strenuous level of hiking. The scenery is beautiful. Great for trail running. If you are visiting the falls definitely check out Devil's Hole.

This was just amazing. Breath taking close up views of the rapids. There are steep steps that take you to trail and you have to climb them on the return trip. The hiking trail has some tough areas to get thru but it's well worth the trip. I would plan on at least an hour each way. Take water and... More

I'm a native to the area, and pretty much hike devils hole on the reg. This is a perfect hike if you want to just get out and be in nature, see the gorge/whirlpools (its not a super long trail) The hike will start on the left, you will see the sign for devils hole trail, yes the "stairs" are...

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
