I highly recommend this over some of the crowded activities at the falls. There are 6 trails you can take. I hiked about 6 miles down the gorge to Devils bend stairs past the whirlpools to the bottom of the gorge. Amazing peaceful views. Nature at its best.

This is a great way to get away from the crowds around the falls. The trail takes you north along the American side the Niagra Gorge, through some nicely undeveloped areas and past several of the whirlpools. This trail runs parallel to the closed lanes of the Robert Moses Parkway, which are now used as a large path between Niagra... More

Nice walk along the river, nice shade trees. The parks were being renovated while we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy getting too close to the river.

We waited until our last night to walk the trail, and it didn't cost us anything. Get away from the commercial part of Niagara Falls and enjoy some nature. Wear good walking shoes and be prepared to climb steps in some places.

From easy to super hard, these trails can give everyone an awesome experience. So beautiful and truly a nature lover's dream. Hot tip: make sure that if you hike low you have non slip shoes - the rocks are killer wet!

We rode this in our tour bus, but many were walking pieces of the trail or riding bikes, hiking or driving cars and parking along the way. We were on the Canadian side. Many places to stop and see various views of the river, the power plants, the rapids and various other sites. Signage is good for explanation (if you... More

You do have to pay to go on this walk, but it is worth it, especially if you get it in a package deal with other Niagara Falls attractions. This is not a strenuous walk, and you are walking along the bank of the river and just the sheer power of the currents is amazing.

Interested in seeing some relatively unspoiled wilderness in the heart of the tourist capital of Niagara Region? My wife and I went with our young children (4 and 2) we used a hiking pack for a lot of the trails we were on simply because it made life easier with our 2 year old and safer Our 4 year old... More
