If you have an hour.... park at the upper falls parking lot and hike the rim trail around the gorge. If you are not up for a challenging hike you can hike a nice flat hike in from the parking lot located at the base of the falls. This path is flat and paved.
Most spectacular in the fall when the leaves are at their peak color.
If you park at the upper falls parking lot there is no admission fee. Lower parking lot free with NYS park pass or $6.00 admission for vehicle.
