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

I went twice for a 2 jhour hike and took the closed trail, to my own risks and had a lot of fun. Not a huge nature area but for a quick hike, it's perfect. The Niagara river is gorgeous. Accessible to all and challenging if need be!

The area contains of multiple trails, each with it's own color and attractions. I thought it was hard to stay on the same path since the marks are not that visible that shows you which trail you are on right now. Sometimes you really need to stop and look around for the marks. My favorite trail is the blue one,... More

One of the coolest hiking trails we have been on. Though it's a bit rugged we have three kids (16, 12, and 11) who really enjoyed it. Hike goes all the way down to the white water!

It is certainly off the beaten path, but it is worth a visit. There's an upper portion to the park and then you walk down a metal staircase to the lower portion of the park where there are lots of areas to explore. Unfortunately, the trail map is a rough guide AND the trail markers are difficult to follow as... More

loved the area clean and well kept, lots to do, some great walks (but in the hot weather you must take water on the trail, advisable to buy a brochure for $3.99 with all the trails on as some are longer and harder than the others, some steps to start with and at the end but its an adventure, saw...

It is just some minutes to drive from Niagara Falls town center, but is worth it. It is absolutely free. A nice area for picnic or just snack, nice panorama view to Niagara river. Wear mountain boots or sneckers, so you could reach the river. It would be difficult with flip-flops and imposible with a stroller.

Make your way to Niagra Glen. There is parking or busses may run from Niagra Falls. There are mapped hikes in the area, but don't follow them! Make your way down to the water and hike south towards the Aerocar along the Niagra River. Canada on one side, USA across the way. A beautiful hike with much to appreciate. When... More

Experience North America the way it was 300 years ago. Wet wild and beautiful. Do your inner self a favor and enjoy some non crowded quiet and beauty far from the madding herd. You'll be very happy you visited this nice park.
