This has always been one of my favourite places to go for a hike. Absolutely stunning scenery. The only complaint is that with the trail marking upgrade it's only gotten more confusing (because they chose new colours but the old ones are still up as...More

Spend time here away from the usual crowds and enjoy up-close scenery of the river. Visit in the fall to add amazing color with a satisfying chill in the air. The trails are natural and rocky in places. You should be in good physical shape...More

This area along the Niagara River is stunning and full of trails and rest areas or benches where you can stop to enjoy the view. Although this is a short distance from the touristy area of Niagara Falls, you can get totally immersed in nature....More

You had better be in pretty good shape to hike down into the river gorge. There are several trails that are really fun and challenging... hold on to your kids and your pets...steep drop offs and lots of big rocks for kids to climb.

Great hike, want to be fairly fit for the way back. The view and the water roaring by, and the jet boats going by if your lucky, make for a great experience at no cost.

We loved this hike! The diversity of plants and huge rocks were great to walk between (if you could over look the graphite and trail markers). I was glad that "someone" had spray painted the odd arrow that said "up" or "down" so you could...More

October in Niagara was absolutely spectacular and we took advantage of the sunshine and balmy temperatures of 17 degrees celsius to hike at the Niagara Glen Nature Area. Located on the Niagara River Parkway, somewhat midway between Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, the trail is absolutely...More

We did not leave ourselves enough time to do justice to the trails here. It was lovely to get away from the hideous strip of Niagara Falls. I suspect this is busy in summer but in october it was quiet and beautiful. Easily accessible via...More

Unfortunately where the majority of the trails are there is no other way down. At the far end of the park near the whirlpool, there are normal stairs that lead down to the whirlpool. It's a LONG walk from the whirlpool... More

You walk at your own pace and it is free. You will have to pay for parking though.
