We took the guided tour for our first trip into the Glen and learned a lot about the area, vegetation and wildlife in the area! The kids were a bit tired by the end as it is a fairly long walk.

While the natural attractions of the area have been highly commercialized, we found the Canadian side to be tasteful and respectful of the amazing natural areas. We especially enjoyed the ride on the Hornblower, the Canadian correlate of the Maid of the Mist, the Whirlpool visit and the nature hike along the river.

Loved it here. Took a trail down by the water, and then walked around the rocky shore. If you look under the "cave" openings you can find cool looking Canada rocks. Saw robins, blue jays, cardinals, and lots of gulls - but only here during winter months. May be more populated in the warmer months. Nonetheless, it's pretty spectacular to... More

My husband and I went here on a short getaway and spent about 2 hours on the trail. It was extremely cold (late December, just had a cold snap), especially by the water, but it was still completely worth it. The trails were very well marked and easy to follow, not to mention incredibly beautiful and breathtaking at many points... More

Awesome trails for hiking and 100% free. Allow a few hours and meander all the way down to the rapids- it's worth it. Watch the whirlpool jet boat navigate it's way through. Pick a sunny day to picnic on the rocks- inches from the thundering rapids. Be careful to stay out of water- danger lurks. Go on a weekday out... More

The Niagara Glen is beautiful from every angle you look at it. Be aware that you hike close to the Niagara Gorge, so respect signs to stay away from the water as rocks can get very slippery. If you are looking for a great and challenging hike with beautiful signs check out the Niagara Glen!! I've also been in October... More

This is another place to visit when in the Niagara area season permitting of course. There is a hiking trail down to the river as well as outdoor cooking areas to sit and enjoy food and take in the scenery.

This is one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on. The view of the Niagara River is breathtaking. The paths are in good shape and around every bend in the path there is wonderful scenery.

You don't have to be a great hiker to go down into the Glen gorge, being fit helps and wearing good shoes is recommended. Every time I come here I see something new. "The Glen" is an area formed by the erosion of the Niagara River due to the waterfall, which has its origin in Queenston 12,000 yrs ago. It... More
