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..

My wife and I stopped here one friday evening for a picnic dinner. Amazing view. Not too many people, so pretty quiet. Also has lots of trails if you like hiking.

We did so many things on our trip, and hiking on the trails in the Niagara Glen Nature Area was one of my favourites. It gets you away from the hustle and bustle of the major tourist attractions and lets you explore the majesty of the river and geology on your own time. We took the trails heading South and... More

I can't believe I just discovered this a couple of years ago. I have been to Niagara Falls a million times but never came across this before. Now I make it a point to go there for a hike every time I go. First off, free parking, bring water & your runners. Don't be scared, just walk down the steel... More
