Dear Ranger, I don't know where you got your information about DeVaux Woods State Park near the rim of the Niagara gorge--and the features you mention are interesting, but the most important one isn't mentioned at all: the acres of Old Growth Forest after which the park is named. The "trail" you mention leading across a parkway to Whirlpool State Park is some white marks painted onto the blacktop. Whirlpool Park, incidently, used to be part of the Old Growth, until brush was torn out & it was made into a "trees & lawn" park....part of it should be allowed to return to Old Growth. 

There is very large grassroots support for removing about 5 miles of this parkway, all 4 lanes, and restoring the forests & wildflower meadows that once graced the Niagara Gorge rim. Walking and bicycle trails would wind through this natural landscape. Please visit to learn more & to add your voice to those who want the parkway removed.
