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

Great. Hike all the way to the bottom where you can get totally mesmerized watching the power of this river and the whirlpool waves. On a clear day, the water is the most pretty emerald green. We pack a lunch and sit on a rock watching the never ending show. Favourite season is the fall as the leaves in full... More

Every little tourist attraction costs $ in Niagara, but here was finally one place that didn't feel touristy or overrun, and was completely free! Here was the beautiful, natural experience we were seeking. It was the one place where you could get a sense of the area's primordial beauty before it became a Las Vegas wannabe. We took the WeGo...

A beautiful set of trails. My husband and I spent 2 hours hiking in the rain and it was still one of the best parts of our trip. It does have some challenging areas and proper foot wear is a must. We did 3 trails but thought they could have been marked a little better. We did get lost on... More
