Niagara Gorge Trail System
— Suspension Bridge Interpretive Area —Gorge Trail 4 · Great Gorge Railway.(1.1mi, 1.8km) The Niagara Gorge Trail System is made up of a series of trail sections located in and along the Niagara River Gorge. Two of these trails are located along the top: the Niagara Gorge Rim Trail (6.2mi, 9.9km) and the Robert Moses Recreation Trail (3.2mi, 5.1km). The six gorge trail sections (7.6mi, 12.2km) can be reached from Artpark, Devil's Hole, Whirlpool, and Niagara Falls State Parks. Gorge Railway Trail, named for the former electric trolley line (1895-1935), begins at this staircase leading to the base of the gorge. Here you can take a short walk downstream to the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge, and view the upper gorge and the head of the Whirlpool Rapids. On the way you will pass the abutments of the Railway Cantilever Bridge (1883-1925), and the former site of the incline railway and Witmer's Mill. The main trail leads upstream on a gradual ascent to the top where it ends at the rim trail. The American Falls Gorge Trail begins halfway up the Great Gorge Railway Trail. You must return to that trail junction to exit the gorge. "We would like to thank the students of Leadership for the Youth of Niagara County (LYNC) and Niagara Falls High School for their good ideas to highlight the may virtues of the Niagara Gorge." —NYPA/State Parks.
