Beautiful hike with amazing views. As a rule of thumb wear GOOD, COMFORTABLE shoes because the path can be uneven and slippery (depending on weather). Take water and hydrate because there are 300+ stairs to get in and out! But it’s totally worth every second,...More

Very nice hike. You can do the shorter hike or the longer one. Really nice vistas. Good work out. Be prepared for stairs.

A good trek if you are an adventurous person and have time at your perusal. You can keep this as the last priority though.

You wouldn't believe how beautiful it is up there especially in the fall . Definately one of if not the best hiking trip I've taken . And by the way I was totally wiped out after hiking there , great exercise.

Seems like this attraction might be missed by others. Unbelievable breathtaking views .you actually take a elevator down to the gorge area. The trail was a little demanding as we are not used to hiking. It was amazing all of the items that you see...More

We used an Uber driver for our adventure this day. He was a native of Niagara Falls so he took us to some places we would not have gone to without a recommendation. We were not disappointed. The view is gorgeous. Not to be missed.

Where comfortable shoes and check your fitness level as this trail can be demanding. Amazing way to see the gorge and rapids.

Moderate level of intensity. Very scenic and interesting. We found about 5 or 6 OLD rusted out cars in the woods, and it looks like a road collapsed back there decades ago. I do wish I had found some sort of plaque that described what...More

Yes there is boulder hopping so wear good shoes supporting your ankles. Aside from that it is not as difficult as the park rangers try to make it appear.

The main parking lot for the park is $10 flat rate. It was full both days we went there and had to pay $20 flat rate at the nearby lot.
