The stairs look tough, but if I can do it, you can... The trails are marked.. so much to appreciate.. the massive rocks, Big trees, the colour of the water in the river. It's revitalizing.. Please don't litter.. or walk off the trails..Rare plants down there. Stay away from the water, the levels do change..

My wife and I stopped here one friday evening for a picnic dinner. Amazing view. Not too many people, so pretty quiet. Also has lots of trails if you like hiking.

We did so many things on our trip, and hiking on the trails in the Niagara Glen Nature Area was one of my favourites. It gets you away from the hustle and bustle of the major tourist attractions and lets you explore the majesty of the river and geology on your own time. We took the trails heading South and... More

I can't believe I just discovered this a couple of years ago. I have been to Niagara Falls a million times but never came across this before. Now I make it a point to go there for a hike every time I go. First off, free parking, bring water & your runners. Don't be scared, just walk down the steel... More

Besides the falls, this was our favorite excursion. So much fun and so pretty. And it's free. The hiking was great. You can make it as strenuous or easy as you want. It was fun for my very adventurous 6 and 10 yo. Lots of different paths to take.

This attraction was absolutely breathtaking ! The beauty and sheer power of the Niagara River in this area rivals that of the falls !

One of the best stops on the trip. Just go stroll around and enjoy the sites. Bike paths and walking paths. Right across the street is the Butterfly Conservatory. Just a lovely spot!

This is an easy hike after walking down the steel staircase. My husband has bad knees so this was a problem. Easy access to the river for wonderful view.

This area is good for a picnic and relaxed strolling, and if you are more adventurous, you can descend the stairs to the nature trail area which is a bit treaturous. It is a beautiful area and highly recommended!
