Walk around the rapids

Incredible. If you want to see all the falls water go through a very narrow valley and see what happens this is the place for you.

This is some of the best hiking in in southern ontario. Simply gorgeous. We went in the morning and it wasn't too crowded either although it got kind of busy right around when we were leaving.

We loved this place. So peaceful and packed with wildlife. We even saw snakes. (small ones!) There are a variety of trails to take. We took the blue trail and picnicked next to the river. What a view! Make sure you take hiking boots, the ground is quite uneven and I was wearing the wrong type of shoes...a little tricky... More

This easily overlooked stop on the way to Niagara on the Lake is worth pondering. A nature reserve near the Niagara Whirlpool overlooking the gorge presents an interesting look into the Niagara escarpment. It gives an idea of what the area must have looked like in its origin.

The Glen is a truly unique area that you really must see if you are able to hike. I highly recommend wearing good hiking boots and bring a knapsack with hydration and a snack/lunch and for sure, a camera! This is a stunning area with enormous boulders jutting out of the forest. The water is bright aqua year round and... More

Nice nature trails for hiking and rock climbing! The breeze from the river will cool you down! The orange trail (an extension from the green trail, not on the displayed map) which leads to the whirlpool beach from the Niagara Glen Nature Centre was a bit challenging because many of rocks were a bit too loose when stepped on, they...

Hiking in the gorge is always a great experience - can feel the power of the Niagara River when you get close, the experience is moderately strenuous, just the right amount of human touch (steps made of rock where required) while still feeling the beauty of nature.

We didn't realize just how beautiful the park that is past the floral clock is. Great views of the whirlpool, deer, a nice golf course, super picnic area. Very nice place for a quiet lunch away from the madness downtown. The will be some tour buses etc, but would guess the picnic areas are not crowded.

We stopped here before we drove back to Ohio and so glad we did, what an amazing park. Great trails. Not perfectly smooth trails, rocky and uneven so you need to keep your eyes down while walking or you will fall down. We spoke with a group of rescue workers that were training there today about some of the calls... More
