It's a beautiful place to hike. We loved visiting in Autumn and look forward to visiting in other seasons as well. You should be careful if you have small children and if you're not really steady on your feet if you do the hike.
We did not plan this part of the trip but decided to take a ride before heading home and this was an experience I will surely never forget. Worth the short drive from the falls.
history is really neat- read up on it before you go. here is a clue: it is legend that the hole is a portal to the spirit world. a former president and indian chief had a chance meeting there.....
...however, I do recommend going to see this park after you've seen Niagara Falls, if there's time. This part of the river is post-Falls, but check out the beautiful jade color. Also, check out the sign on the property that states the history of the location, and the bloody massacre that took place there!

Nice short stop, 30 minutes, short paved interpretive trail offering signs explaining the formation of the area. Easy walking.
Stunning views of the river as it rages into a whirlpool. Saw 2 red tailed Hawks flying below our lookout point. Great photo op. The tram car was crossing the river when we visited.
The walking trail from the Falls along Whirlpool State Park to Devils Hole is fantastic. Plenty of wonderful sights and sounds, flora and funa to see. The whirlpools themselves are great to see and the walk from the top of the gorge down into devils hole itself to the river is well worth it. I'm not sure why some reviews... 更多
