Enjoy this network of well marked trails. Drop into the visitor centre for advice on where to walk--there is a lot to see and the park staff can give you advice based on your interests and fitness. The portholes are particularly photogenic weathering patterns in the rocks. Plan to spend at least an hour to do a nice loop through... More

We enjoyed the hiking so much we went back a second time. Be sure to take a picture of the map before going down the escarpment because the trail markings can be a bit confusing. The trails and the Niagara river are amazing.

this area requires good walking or hiking shoes and there is a steep grade in spots but is one of the most unique spots every. go right to the edge of the water for full effect. you won't regret it. and it's FREE !!!

We were there on a hot and humid day in August and still loved it! Lots of stairs and a great workout but you don't notice because you are focused on watching the trail signs and the beauty around you! Wear good hiking/walking shoes, leave the heels and sandals at home!

While your are on the Edge of the Glory of the Niagara River, you have the privilege of exploring nature's beauty of each and every marked trail of this beautiful piece of Niagara Escarpment. I have been doing these gorge trips since the 1970's and have had lots of "off the marked trails" experiences too. Please make sure you stay... More

Nice wooded trails with great views along the way! Trails are color coded and are marked along the way. Be aware there are stairs, down and uphill climbs... so wear good shoes.

The beautiful trails that lead you to the waters edge are a challenge. We have been climbing down the gorge for over 50 years.

If you can walk down the many steps, the walk is worth it. You can see the greenery, the rapids and just be close to nature

Didn't think this hike was going to turn out as beautiful as it did, be prepared to climb some "rough" terrain but definitely worth the walk to see the river and be able to touch it in spots.

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..
