I absolutely love this trail. Just to warn those interested it is a 3 out of 5 trail as it does get steep and rocky. But it is a must as the scenery is breathtaking and once you get down to the rapids it is amazing to see how blue the water is. I recommend this trail to family and... More

I've been going here since I was a small child. We have loved walking the Niagara gorge trail for many reasons; the beauty and history among them. Years ago this was a little known trail, but now I see a bunch of people climbing the stairs! Be warned that it can be dangerous, so I wouldn't bring little kids. But... More

We chose the easy trail which is the Great Gorge Scenic Trail, which is trail #4. It starts to the side of the Discovery Center building on Robert Moses Parkway. The only kind of walking I do is on level city concrete. I was a bit hesitant to even try this trail, but it really is an easy trail. There... More

When you see such a marvelous beauty as this site, how can anyone doubt that their is a GOD! Seeing those Class VI rapids were breathtaking!! Then, the real highlight was the whirlpool caused by the merging of all the waters of the Niagara River to the neck of Lake Ontario. Our tour guide with Greyline Tours (Prady) did an... More

Get away from the crowds and experience the sights, sounds, flora and funa of the Niagara River. The trail takes in the Falls, and three State Parks (Niagara Falls, Whirlpool, and Devils Hole) and is an excellent way to experience the geology up close and personal without hordes of visitors. The trail itself is easy for all ages and abilities.... More

We started at the Discovery Center, rode the elevator down, and hiked the gorge. Wear comfortable shoes, use hiking sticks and be ready to use your hands to pull yourself up over some rocky areas. This is not recommended for any one who will end up carrying a small child or two out of the gorge because they cannot climb... More

Great areas for hiking, biking, walking from Devil's hole all the way to the falls. Picnic areas, bathrooms, nature center and aquarium across from each near the falls. The entire area has been updated and renovated, with one side of the Robert Moses Parkway devoted exclusively to bike and foot traffic. Walk along the edge of the gorge on a... More

serene and the geology of the place behind the gorge is spell binding. We could see the wheel jet tours having fun. Will be back for that ride
