Devil's Hole stairs to be replaced


Tue, Jul 11th 2017 05:10 pm
Beginning Monday, July 17, the stairs into the Niagara Gorge at Devil's Hole State Park will be closed as work begins to replace them. The stairs are expected to be closed through the spring of 2018.
The $645,500 project consists of removing and reconstructing a middle portion of the existing stairs and trail sections at Devil's Hole. Scott Lawn Yard is the contractor on this project.
Access to the gorge will be available via the Great Gorge Railway Trail (begins at Niagara Gorge Discovery Center), whirlpool, the suspension bridge stairs (under the Whirlpool Bridge) and the elevator at the Schoellkopf Power Plant Ruins at Niagara Falls State Park. Fishing access is also available at Artpark and at the New York Power Authority south access road fishing platform (opens April 1).
