Devil’s Hole State Park Professional Review and Guide

"A winding descent on a 200-foot rock staircase, a trek along the Niagara River’s edge, and a chance to peer inside a huge side gorge are just some of the adventures on this eventful hike. 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) 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."
