Gorges trail is a wonder of nature. A small waterfall lies hidden and waits for you to visit it. Absolutely amazing walking through a nature path until the destination where the waterfall is.

Follow this trail down into the gorge carved by the Niagara river. Thundering rapids, amazing colors in the fall, and lots of things to see.

Gorgeous views from within the gorge, right along the Niagara River. You can see some of Horseshoe Falls in the distance framed underneath Rainbow Bridge. You also get great views as you cross under the Whirlpool Bridges. The river is an emerald color, so beautiful....More
