  • We visited the gorge during our Over The Falls combined walking tour and Maid of the Mist tour. We were better for the experience. We learned that the "Devil's Hole" was the start of the Falls...  more »
  • The views are spectacular , the hike to get to the water is a little bit hard but worthy, we loved it, will do it again.  more »

  • Fantastic place. The old stone steps that lead to the gorge are in rough shape so be careful. Hiking boots recommended. Amazing views of the water. If you go far enough there’s a huge cave and a bit further puts you under the rainbow bridge. Nature in the rough. Great work out and a pleasurable challenge. Photo ops abound.
  • This area of the park is wonderful. I enjoyed the VERY long staircase from road level down to water level. At the bottom, there are trails reaching in both directions along the water. You could spend a good hour or two here without being bored. The views at the road level are fabulous. It is currently June 2019 and there is some construction blocking the usual scenic drive route from the actual falls to this part of the park. The rerouting is not too bad. Worth the drive!
