Niagara Falls, New York Map

Great hike! We enjoyed it immensely. Lots of wildlife along the trail and surrounding woodlands. Be alert for snakes. Roots and rocks abound. Watch where you walk and bring trekking poles. The steps are tough for short people like me and the trekking poles are an invaluable asset on any trail!

Beautiful hike along the river - lots of people and dogs but still nice.

Great trail that gets you close to Horseshoe Falls and gets you away from the tourists.

The signs say “easy” but AllTrails rates it moderate. If you are not experienced and in good condition, this is definitely “moderate”. Very cool hike took me about 2.5 hours round trip.

The water levels rose quite a bit so the trail along the river was sometimes underwater but beautiful none-the-less with easy detours. Great lookout points to watch the boats on the rapids. Variety of birds to check out while hiking through.

some of my favourite trails to hike are all at the gorge, although I wouldnt say it is all "easy". probably more moderate skill level, different parts of some trails include climbing over bigger rocks to continue depending on the time of year you go. (dependent on water levels and weather, mud, etc) beautiful scenery, recommend to all hiking enthusiasts!

fun trail, lots of stairs

The stairs down into the gorge looked really old but they were replaced in certain sections. It was absolutely beautiful. Take your time so you don't slip. So glad we took the stairs down.

Took us about an hour at a leisurely pace with plenty of pictures. It costs 5$ to park. It’s very nice to see the sights of the Canada side over the water. During the winter a lot of the paths that are closer to the water are closed off due to ice. Still great overlooks

Really awesome and breathtaking views! Be sure to dress warm and prepare to get wet.

Nice earlier winter hike. They did have a lot of the walkways closed for the winter which was a bummer.

Definitely a must do walk around Goat Island/Niagara Falls State Park. All paved trails and steps/ramps (most areas ADA accessible, including by wheelchair and/or stroller) where needed to see the different falls, rivers, and smaller islands. Cost $10 to park the car, no other fees to hike around. No crowds this fall cool rainy season time of year-had a beautiful mild temp sunny day with gorgeous fall colors everywhere-yellow, oranges, reds!

Paved. Lovely place.

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.

Trail is located in the central area of Niagara Falls State Park. Offers a fantastic view of rapids and the falls. The trail itself has a lot of traffic, but it's Niagara Falls. Scenic and majestic views all along the trail.

Trail is paved and is located on the outskirts of Niagara Falls State Park. Offers a decent view of the Niagara Gorge. Not as heavily trafficked as the central trails at the park, but the views aren't as spectacular either. Give it a 4 star only because it's a part of the overall experience of visiting the falls.

Awesome! So much to see... little bridges to islands. Several smaller waterfalls to find. Access to cave of the winds, and cafe with food and drink. Most areas are Dog friendly!!

I went there in winter. The Niagara Falls is winter is so respectful and amazing. The hike in this island is also funny, especially walking in the snow. Another thing, I spent the Christmas Eve in Niagara~

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

Love this place. I live close to Niagara Falls, and every time I go there, I get chills just from how amazing and beautiful the falls are. The views are great from goat island. You can get so close to the falls and just hear and see how powerful they are. Definitely worth it!
