White Water Walk, Niagara Falls

4.4
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Niagara Falls
Marvel at the trillions of gallons of water powering their way along one of the widest stretches of white water in the world at White Water Walk. Travel down 70 m (229 ft) in an elevator, to a short tunnel leading to the water's edge. A 305 m (1/4 mi) boardwalk arm's length away from the natural phenomenon takes you to two observation points, both with views of the Class 6 whirlpool rapids, which rage ferociously at 48 km/h (30 mph). From here you will learn first-hand how the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge were slowly forged thanks to the sheer force of the water. Make White Water Walk a centerpiece of your Niagara Falls vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Niagara Falls road trip planning website .

  • Amazing rapids with lots of white noise. Tree covered walkway to walk along the path or the water rapids and enjoy the thrilling walkway and view. The entire path is filled with information regarding the walkway. It has proper parking on the street and if you have purchased the Niagara Park Pass than the parking is free with ticket. Wego bus can drop you there from table rock. Cool place to visit.
  • This is such a beautiful walk. The water is so clear and the colour is amazing. This is a paid area and not many people go away from Niagara falls, so you can definitely get some great pictures in here. Worth every single penny!
