Devil’s Hole State Park

Devil’s Hole State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nearly obscured from view until you’re standing at its rim, the Devil’s Hole area can be startling at first glimpse: a deep gouge in the Niagara Gorge—actually a side gorge, eroded by an outlet of an ancient glacial lake (long since run dry) and now filled with thriving vegetation. You’re about to follow a series of stone and concrete staircases around the perimeter of the side gorge, finally coming to ground just a few feet above water level—an extraordinary place from which to view the river’s pounding rapids, standing waves, and daunting rock formations."
