Hello! I'm back with my second post of our trip to Niagara Falls, and the very last post of our New Hampshire/Vermont vacation that we took back in August. On my first post of Niagara Falls, I told all about our adventures on the Maid of the Mist. Today's post will focus on our walking tour of the Niagara Falls State Park.
After we finished our boat tour of the falls, we saw this trail that takes you right up the side of the falls. The steps are cement and there is a hand rail, which you really need because the steps are very wet and can be slippery. You do get soaking wet on this trail because the mist from the falls hits you very hard. Moss and other vegetation grows very well on the rocks next to the falls due to all the mist.
After we descended the tower, we started walking the paths in the park. The first path took us along the raging white waters that flow into the falls. The bridge in the picture below is part of the path that you take across the river to view the other two waterfalls.
The trail from the tower leads to Terrapin Point Horseshoe Falls.
