Journey Behind the Falls

November is the last month of the calendar year for visitors to hike to the lower observation deck at Journey Behind the Falls. This attraction allows guests to trek through the tunnels underneath the mighty Horseshoe Falls, emerging in a misty cave mouth directly beneath the thundering waterfall. Multiple portals are spread throughout the tunnels for visitors to take in unique views of the underside of the falls. The hike takes a little over 30 minutes. The colder temperatures in November often lead to impressive ice formations from the mist of the falls, making this a special time to visit.
