“Devils Hole”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

After you get done seeing Niagara Falls, go North a few miles on the Canadian side to see this fantastic whirlpool in the Niagara River. It is HUGE!!! There is a cable car that takes you directly over the churning, swirling water. Very scary and thrilling at the same time. Excellent for kids, maybe too intense for very young though. Cable car moves very slow and is steady and safe.

“Not the falls”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Do this first because it is a buildup to the falls, but not able to match the falls. You will have to walk down the path to see it. There are bathrooms and a visitor center, but not very handicapped friendly. Mostly old blacktop path with a few stairs to get there. Not a big attraction for me.

“Great views and a workout too.”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Scenic hike along the Niagara River between the falls and the Lewiston power plant. You can stay up top or go down along the river, but the health of those walking is a factor. It can be difficult for older or obese individuals along the river as it's a true hike with roots, rocks, and lots of stairs back up at sometimes steep angles. I went on a day in the 70's and was shocked how tired I got; you cannot access the river safely so be prepared with fluids and snacks if needed.

“Hikers Dream”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Yes, there is a path(actually several to choose from) as you descend. Wear gym shoes vs. flip flops. You can hike all the way down to the river, or along the gorge. Free parking. Limited signage, but great foliage and scenery.
