Niagara Gorge stairway to close temporarily

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. -- The stairs into the Niagara Gorge at Devils Hole State Park will be closed for three days while crews perform work on them. 

The stairs will be closed from Monday, June 26 at 5 a.m. until the morning of June 29. 

Crews will remove loose rocks from the gorge, which will help protect hikers from falling rocks. 

Those looking to hike into the gorge can use the Great Gorge Railway Trail, which starts at the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. The Whirlpool stairs, Suspension Bridge stairs under the Whirlpool Bridge, and the elevator at the Schoellkopf Power Plant Ruins at Niagara Falls State Park will also provide access to the gorge. 

Those looking to go fishing can go to Artpark, 450 S. 4th St. in Lewiston, or the New York Power Authority South Access Road Fishing Platform.
