FANTASTIC secluded area for nature walks and photography. NOTE: 1. Make sure you are in good shape and have no medical issues. The walk down and back up the flight of stairs at the beginning is steep; 2. Wear good hiking boots, some part of the trail are challenging. 3. STAY AWAY FROM THE WATER'S EDGE!!!!! It's the whirlpool area... More

Excellent option if you enjoy hiking and are looking for something free to do in the area. I wish we had found this sooner and had more time as would have really enjoyed a longer hike. We saw a lot of people with flip flops and would not advise this as the trail is rugged and slippery as it is... More

The views were wonderful. The rangers were great and friendly. There are plenty of areas to sit and relax if you are not interested in hiking. One downside is that they do not have maps tourists can take for the hiking trails.

This park has extensive picnic grounds with a small store and bathrooms...on the far east end is a steel staircase going down to several hiking trails that take you to the waters edge-you can watch the speed boats going by and there are beautiful rock outcroppings and gorges. A great mid-day stop for your busy day, especially if you are... More

Hike the trail to the Niagara River which takes you into the gorge. A good work out. The steps to the gorge are to be used with caution as there are some slippery spots. Don't give if it seems a long ways down as the final destination will reward you with be able to be on the bank of the... More

This area is amazing, some of the views will take your breath away. Great hiking areas, and the Jet Boats are here, which are a must do when in the falls area. The WEGO takes you right to this area in about 10-15 minutes from downtown area. This is a must see when in Niagara Falls!

Niagara Glen has adventurous and fun trails along the Niagara River near the whirlpool. The trails are beautiful, fun, steep, somewhat challenging, and reminiscent of childhood adventures in the woods. After descending down a steel stairway into the gorge, several paths go off in different directions. Trails are marked, yet not always clear where you are, and the trails are... More

For all the times we have travelled to Niagara falls, we were not aware of what this place was about. After you park and walk down to a grassy area, you descend about 40 stairs into the river gorge. The trails are a bit rugged for kids, but the scenery is amazing with lush woods and huge rocks everywhere. Highly... More
