  • Found a species of constrictor snakes there I posted it on Facebook, no one believed me though... funny. Beautiful scenery lots of trails lots of walking and hiking and stairs great place to get in shape or to bring the family or to chill. Lots of Flora and Fauna please look take pictures and don't pick to take home. Let's keep the beauty so I can see.
  • Very scenic views and good trails. The trails could be marked a little better we got off trail once or twice on the way to the whirlpool but nothing catastrophic. Ran across two other couples who were unsure of the way back. Other than that, great hiking and happy trails.
  • Quiet, nice place to take rest. if you see movie at Niagara you'll find here more fun. you can also see a cable car on Canada side.
  • The gorge trails are absolutely breathtaking! They are far less busy than the rest of the local falls attractions but they are also less well kept. There are places that are actually fairly treacherous so I would not recommend these trails for young children.
  • I love hiking here because it's a short drive from the city and so beautiful and scenic. If you park here, walk along the rim trail to the devil's hole staircase (the second set of stairs), walk the lower trail all the way to the end then head back up the whirlpool stairs to the parking lot, then you'll have gone 6.5 miles.
