“A nice loop route to the best of the beautiful Niagara Gorge.”— Sarah Baker
Family Friendly This is an easy hike leading to great views of the Niagara Gorge that the entire family will enjoy.
At one mile from the trailhead, a route leading to the right descends into the gorge. Take this right and descend steeply to the Niagara River. At the bottom of the gorge, the route splits. The left fork heads along the Whirlpool Rapids Trail. Take the right fork to continue on the route. The trail follows the Niagara River along cliffs and through groves of trees.
At a junction, after about one mile of following the river, take a right. The trail immediately ascends numerous steps through a nice hardwood forest to the top of the gorge and back to the Devil's Hole parking area.
