Robert Moses Recreational Trail Description

The Robert Moses Recreational Trail, spanning nearly 4 miles, begins at Main Street in Niagara Fall. From there, it heads north past the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center and winds along the Niagara River through a series of state parks.

In De Veaux Woods State Park, trail goers will find several historical buildings, an old-growth forest, and many recreational amenities, including athletic fields, a playground, picnic tables, and grills. Farther along, the trail continues through Devil's Hole State Park, which offers scenic overlooks, picnic areas, fishing spots, and hiking trails.

From the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center, adventurers can also pick up the Great Gorge Railway Trail to descend closer to the river. And, on the opposite bank, the Devil's Hole Trail also offers a hiking excursion.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available at the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center (200 Robert Moses Parkway N., Niagara Falls), in De Veaux Woods State Park (3180 De Veaux Woods Drive, Niagara Falls), and at Devil's Hole State Park (off Robert Moses Parkway).

Robert Moses Recreational Trail Reviews

North of Niagara Falls, USA one lane of the Robert Moses Parkway has been closed to cars. This makes a nice ride. At Devil's Hole the off ride bike path ends. From this path you can go south from town along the river and go over to Goat Island for some extra mileage and more great views of the river and falls.

On this trip we stayed on the Canadian side where there are some great trails along the river. One day we biked across the bridge back to the USA to take this ride!
