When it comes to awe-inducing power and the thrill of swirling rapids, few rivers in the northeastern United States can match the Niagara—especially in the miles after Niagara Falls tumbles from its 176-foot height into the basin below. To appreciate the river’s force and its influence on the sedimentary rock walls that contain it, descend into the gorge on the gentle Great Gorge Railway Trail.
