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.
