This short walk along the Niagara River lets you see the raging rapids and some beautiful scenes that you wouldn't otherwise get to see. It was shorter than I expected, but it is self guided so you can take your time and grab some beautiful photos along the way. We also saw some wildlife on the river banks.

This is self guided so you can spend as long as you like. We were here about an hour to walk to the end and back. The bus pick... More

I love this attraction. Seeing those rapids is incredible. Takes time to get on the elevator to go down to see this though.

I really didn't think that much could equal the awesomeness of the falls themselves, but this comes pretty close. The walkway / boardwalk is very well constructed and safe, and it takes you so close to the river! There are informational plaques here and there along the walk, which point out the geology and flora and fauna of the area.... More

the trail should be made a bit better and easier. But once you reach the bottom the view is amazing and worth the hike.

This visit was part of the Niagara Falls Adventure Pass or myself and my grandson. Being so close to the rapids and rushing water of the Niagara is quite the sight. The walk along the rapids is well worth the visit. What a beautiful sight.

Kudos to the makers of this walkway which gave fantastic views of the rapids without one getting wet. Wish we could have spent more time here but there were other places to see in our pass.

This was a very fun experience. The rapids are very powerful and you get very close to them. WARNING about 100 feet into the walk plug your nose... Some kind of smelly sewer is next to the boardwalk. I wouldn't pay the fee if not part of a package but I think that goes for a lot of the attractions... More

As part of our package at Niagara Falls, my children and I ended up on the White Water Walk. We were fortunate enough to arrive early in the day and there wasn't a line to go down. You take an elevator to get down to the river level and when we finished there was a long line waiting. There are... More
