If you have never seen the Niagara river in person, you should come take a look. The rapids and whirlpools are enough to satisfy most, but wait until you see a Canada Goose casually floating by what looks like a boat eating whirlpool... That's how they roll out here. Beautiful spot for a hike out here though.
You have to see the magic and force of the mighty Niagara river. The Whirlpool State Park has spectacular views of the whirlpool and the force of the water. Take a short walk from the parking lot to a ridge that give a overall majestic view of the river. Or, plan on a hike down to the edge of the canyon and water. There is a great trail system here. Take a hike down (and back up) a well designed but very large step system. Hope you have been doing your squats? Bring a backpack and plenty of water on those warm days while hiking.
