Niagara Gorge Rim Trail Description

True to its name, the Niagara Gorge Rim Trail traces the eastern edge of the Niagara Gorge, offering connections to three state parks and spectacular views of the Niagara River below and the surrounding city skyline.

For much of the journey, the paved pathway parallels the Niagara Scenic Parkway, providing access to Devil's Hole State Park, Whirlpool State Park and Niagara Falls State Park. The trail crosses the river on a pedestrian bridge over Goat Island, nestled in the channel leading to American Falls, and ends along the northwestern shoreline of Goat Island.

Nearby, travelers can also explore the Great Gorge Railway Trail, Devil's Hole Trail and Niagara Scenic Parkway Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available at Devil's Hole Park, Whirlpool State Park, Niagara Falls State Park (332 Prospect St.) and Goat Island.
