This is a great trail and easy to access. There is parking located across the street from the Whirlpool Golf Course. On the New York side of the river the Whirlpool trail is spectacular as you can walk all the way up river from the whirlpool to view the rapids. The Discovery trail is much more leisurely and the shorter of the two trails. This two mile trail area is very beautiful, quiet and peaceful. Starting at the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center head north for a slow incline descending into the gorge.
