Devil's Hole State Park covers 42 acres of land along the Niagara Gorge, just north of Niagara Falls, New York. Located on the American side of the Niagara River, this state park is renowned for its natural beauty and challenging walking and hiking trails. There is a pedestrian walkway from the northern parking lot that leads directly to the trails. Dogs are allowed in the park, provided that they are on a leash at all times.

The park is open year-round, however, access to the trails is often weather dependent. Spring and summer provide excellent opportunities to explore. Heavy rains at any time of year may make some trails impassable and dangerous to travel. Winter is often cold, snowy, and icy, and some trails are not safe to walk or hike at these times. Make sure that you and your dog are wearing appropriate gear for walking and for whatever weather conditions you may encounter.

The trails in Devil's Hole State Park are a mixture of flat paths, hilly sections, and some rougher trails that require some climbing ability. Dog walkers should stick to the flat trails or paths where the hills are not too challenging for a dog. Although there is a stone staircase that allows access to the base of the Niagara Gorge and the primary Devil's Hole Trail, the stairs are too steep for a dog to climb and should be avoided by walkers. 

The trails that are dog-friendly offer a variety of spectacular views and terrain that you and your dog will be able to traverse. Be aware that the trails are not marked but are well-established and relatively easy to follow, providing opportunities for hikers of a variety of levels to get some proper exercise in the outdoors. No matter what type of walking you're looking for, you'll find something that suits your needs.
