The stone walkway down to the water needs work. Handrails could be added and/or improved. Recommended for experienced trail climbers only.

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... More

We hiked to the Devil's Hole on our way to the Whirlpool. It was OK and the hike was relatively easy. It just paled in comparison to the Whirlpool and the river gorge.

Took a motor coach tour and this was one of the many stops driver made. Something we had not seen before so you must see it too!

The only part of the trail that I enjoy most was the area you can dip you feet in the water. There are plenty of boulders to sit and cool down while dipping your feet between the boulders. We didn't see that many people on this trail than the Whirlpool Rapids Trail. The easy scenic trail from the top of... More

saw a lot of whirlpools in the water, which is why boats and jet ski can't go down there because they will be sucked down in the whirlpools.

It's something to see, looking over the railing down to all that power in the water. If you've ever done any white water rafting it makes you glad you are looking at it and not in it!

Why would anyone think they could swim across a huge whirlpool? The spot is beautiful. From the observation area you can clearly see the how the whirlpool circulates. Absolutely beautiful. Not easily navigated for folks in wheelchairs as there are many steps. This stop does not take long to enjoy, maybe an hour at most. There is a 4 mile... More

Get away from the Niagara Falls honkey-tonk and flea market atmosphere on the American side and discover the essence of the Niagara River at Devil's Hole Park. The hike is a snap for fit experienced hikers as you descend granite rock steps a few hundred feet in elevation to a tree shaded trail along the river. The trail extends to... More
