A new stairway with incredible scenery

To The River A new stairway with incredible scenery These new stairs leading to the Great Gorge Railway Trail at the river's edge were completed in 2012 by expert trail builders hired by the New York Power Authority and New York State Parks. The stairs were designed and constructed to blend with the natural landscape using stone quarried in New York State. They provide an elegant, safe and sturdy path down into the Niagara River Gorge while preserving the natural beauty of the steep, wooded slopes. Peter S. Jensen and Associates, Tahawus Trails, and Timber & Stone collectively crafted the new stairs, making sure that they will blend in with the natural setting of the Niagara Gorge. Venturong down the new stairway near the Whirlpool Bridge brings you to the edge of the Niagara River. Breathtaking vistas of the lush greenery and swirling rapids are available at several spots along the river, including at the foot of the new stairway. The Great Gorge Railway Trail, acessible by walking down this new stone stairway, is a hiking trail of gentle incline which leads from the bottom of the Niagara River Gorge to the upstream Schoelkopf Overlook area along the Gorge Rim.
