Whirlpool State Park reviews
Convenient to downtown, features great hikes, excellent views, and beautiful scenery all around! Everyone should take a morning to hike here. Be aware - LOTS of (uneven) stairs

The power of the river as it narrows and curves is amazing. Even from way above, the swirling of the water, currents, and power are evident

If you have never seen the Niagara river in person, you should come take a look. The rapids and whirlpools are enough to satisfy most, but wait until you see a Canada Goose casually floating by what looks like a boat eating whirlpool... That's how they roll out here. Beautiful spot for a hike out here though.
You have to see the magic and force of the mighty Niagara river. The Whirlpool State Park has spectacular views of the whirlpool and the force of the water. Take a short walk from the parking lot to a ridge that give a overall majestic view of the river. Or, plan on a hike down to the edge of the canyon and water. There is a great trail system here. Take a hike down (and back up) a well designed but very large step system. Hope you have been doing your squats? Bring a backpack and plenty of water on those warm days while hiking.
