Beautiful trail. Pictures don’t do it justice. Tons of wildlife! Late September is the best time to go imo.. no bugs at that time and it’s sweater weather!

Nice hike. We started at Whirlpool State Park instead of Devil's Hole for the hike down into the gorge. Near the end of the trail just a bit upriver of the whirlpool, you can walk down on the big flat sections of rock for awesome views of the Niagara River. Great place to sit and enjoy a break while watching and listening to the huge rapids. If you are there at the right time, you might get to watch the jet boats take folks up and down the rapids (kind of noisy, but also kind of fun to watch).

This was an awesome hike! The moderate rating was accurate. There are staircases at both the Devil’s Hole State Park and The Whirlpool State Park. Devil’s Hole to Whirlpool is a one mile hike. Once you get towards the Whirlpool sections, you can go on the rocks and get extremely close to the Niagara River. Amazing views!

Good trail for a quick tip on a MTB.

awesome beautiful hike

Awesome day hike! Very well defined trail.

great trail. some spots are steep with lose rocky terrain. mind your step. the river will take your life if you fall in. people all over the world underestimate its powerful currents and whirl pools. they don't call it devils hole for no reason. all in all, respect where you are and enjoy it.

The trail followed a creek most of the way, it was very muddy and overgrown in sections. We were thankful someone left orange ties as it was confusing at some areas where to go. We stayed at the Morrison campground which is a must. The waterfront view was the best part of the hike. We took swimsuits to enjoy a swim. It cost 12$ to stay at the campground and there is a fee collection drop box. I was surprised there was cell phone service at campground and we saw many boats come through. Fire wood wasn't easy to gather for us, as everything was damp. We took a snake bite suction just in case. Water needs to be filtered before consumption. seems to be pretty popular trail on weekends. glad we checked it out but will check out others before going back.

Nice trail, pretty easy in terms of grade, Little Rock city is neat. Saw a couple deer and lots of birds.

I really enjoyed the trail. It was fairly quiet with the exception of the jet boat tours. The stairs were mildly strenuous. We did run into an eastern massasauga rattlesnake that was only inches from the trail. While I was able to get a great picture, it definitely had us looking down the rest of our time on the trail. Overall I highly reccomend!

great trail, good views and a nice workout. can't wait to this trail again!

The Little Rock city area was cool to explore. There is minimal elevation change, so the miles go by easily. Only thing lacking on this trail is some scenic overlooks.

Great trail and views!

Beautiful top and water level views of Niagra River. Short but strenuous up and down. Only issue was loud boats going and up and down rapids that cut in to the serenity of it all.

watch out for the horse flies. bring bug spray. go after rain, waterfall had no water

Just finished two days on this trail. It was a great experience for a novice (me), and my experienced friend. We traveled counter clockwise, at a gradual pace. Spent first night near a creek, and second near the Morrison campground. Even though it was a busy weekend in the park (The Allegheny 100 was going on), outside of the camp. we saw very few other hikers. We found the trail easy to navigate, however, a couple of people we encountered seemed to have a hard time with it. Stayed covered with repellent, and very few if any insect bites. As others have mentioned, the return from Morrison to Trail head was wet, and covered many creeks. Overall, an excellent experience.

Easy walk. Great for dogs

gorgeous,fabulous view . we are so glad did this hike . can't be better.

Probably the best local trial that I've hiked. Beautiful scenery and well marked.

very nice trail, secluded and a few changes of terrain I would rate this trail as moderate to difficult. seems a lot longer than 9 miles. give yourself time to explore the rocks and hike back out.

Hiked here for my first time today and it was stunning!
