Whirlpool State Park has two levels--the upper, or street level has many overlooks with spectacular views of the swirling waters of the rapids, the whirlpool and the Niagara River Escarpment. Visitors picnic and children use the playground at this level. The lower, or river level is accessible by walking the 300 feet of trails and steps that descend into the gorge. This level has several nature trails and access for fishing.

Trail is located south of Niagara Falls State Park. Offers a fantastic view of the rapids and gorge along the river. Mostly dirt and gravel surface with some canopy overhead. If you don't have a fear of heights, there is a side trail which offers access down to the riverfront. Great area to finish off the day after a visit to the falls.

A beautiful hike! Lots of foot traffic, but well laid out and well- marked!
