You can't find a better place to truly experience the Niagara River and it's amazing forest! If you have the ability to take a decent hike in the woods that includes some steep areas, I would not pass this up!

Watching the rapids was interesting if you enjoy seeing different climates and waterways. it's a lot of walking. Our grandsons were not that interested in the history of the area

Feather in the Glen is an excellent way to spend a few hours. Much easier walk than the Whirlpool. Lots of interesting geological features, wildlife, peace and quiet. Well marked trails. Coming around that last corner and being overwhelmed by the sound of the river works for me every time. The opposite effect as you start the walk back up... More

We didn't get a chance to hike the area, but saw it from a jet boat on the river and it is beautiful. Would have liked to been there longer so we could check out the trails.

What a beautiful area. Wooden walkways built close to the water, almost scary. Great place to get pictures of the rapids. Cool, so wear a jacket or sweater, even in summer (eves). Lovely place to soak up nature, and the actual power of water. The rapids and flow of the water can actually mesmerize you. Not for the faint of... More

This is a must see. From Niagara Falls following down the Niagara Parkway following the gorge, there are many places to stop and see the majesty and power of the Niagara River. There are many whirlpools and rapids to watch. If you continue the whole Parkway you will be in Niagara-On-The-Lake.

It is something that few will see unless in photo's the shear sound and mist is enough for you to know that you are in front of something with energy and strength - many people don't grt to see something so powerful - in a safe environment - with the trip Clifton Hill is fun for all

We took several hours to hike the Glen on our recent Niagara trip, and were glad we did. Between hiking by the enormous boulders and the panoramic views of the Niagara River, this is a great off-the-beaten-path activity. As others have said, the trails are not well-marked, but with a map and some patience you will stumble upon fantastic views.

The trees in this area are absolutely stunning. Bask in the beauty that Niagara has to offer in this nearly un-touched area. Looming tulip trees and the roaring Niagara river washes by. Beautiful sights of the US too.

Lovely area downstream from the falls. Must be in shape as this is a 300 foot gorge and you will have to climb back up. At first you go down a caged stairway of a couple hundred steps. Then a number of inter-connected trails to choose from. Huge boulders and interesting rock formations. Some trails lead down to the rapids... More
