A trail down into the Niagara Gorge to the Whirlpool Rapids.

Sarah Baker

Features Fall Colors · River/Creek · Views

Description

The trail starts on the Niagara Gorge Rim Trail and immediately descends steeply into the gorge. The route follows the stunningly blue Niagara River to Whirlpool Point. Whirlpool Point is a great place to stop for a lunch break. Just make sure not to fall into the water; the currents are very dangerous.
