Did you know….There used to be a trolley service from Niagara Falls NY to Youngstown NY which followed the Niagara River right at the waters edge? It was named the “Great Gorge Route” and operated from 1895 until 1930. The owners of the line eventually closed for good due to the Great Depression and the newer and more modern modes of transportation of the bus and automobile. During the tourism season a flood light was mounted on a flat-bed car and used to illuminate the Giant Whirlpool at night. The image shown depicts the trolley heading north from the Niagara Falls. Portions of the old rail line are now part of the “Great Gorge Hiking Trail“.
Many visitors to Niagara Falls are unaware that we possess some of the most beautiful hiking trails in North America. The area known as the Niagara Gorge begins at the Falls and extends almost 5.5 miles (9 km) to the north. The gorge is accessible at various points along the Niagara Parkway on both sides of the Niagara River. You can hike down to the rivers edge for some breathtaking views of the local flora and fauna. Visit our hiking page for details!
