We had driven by this area for years not knowing what a quiet and nice area it truly is. It is located southwest of the Butterfly Conservatory along the Niagara Pkwy which parallels the Niagara River. You can do several things here including ahving a picnic with many tables offered, take a stroll within a wooded field, climb down about... More

Did this hike with teenagers and a 10 yr old. Everyone loved it. We just happened upon this place while checking in for the whirlpool jet boat. So glad we had on good shoes. Lots of rocks and steps. Nothing horrible but was steeper than I expected. Trails have markings but it's easy to get confused. We made it down... More

The view was beautiful. Strenuous climb, down and up but worth it. The trails need more frequent markings - a number of us got lost on the way back. Lots of climbing over rocks, loose stones etc. Staff at Centre should warn hikers before they go.

My family is quite in love with hiking so we wanted to take this journey, a first for all of us. It was definitely more challenging than I had expected but we all made it, including our 4-year-old who is no stranger to a good hike (but he did sleep soundly as soon as he sat in the car). It's...

This is where you get on the Jet Boat for the whirlpool ride. Very scenic area. Didn't appear to be much to do if not riding a boat.

We took the metal stairway down the rockface and hiked to the river and back. There are three small caves along the way that are just amazing. It was very hot and feeling the cool air pour out of the caves was nice. It's pretty steep so people who are less fit may struggle. Also, lots of poison ivy along... More

Very pretty, but it was a very hot and humid morning so the kids got pretty cranky. At first they ought it was great, saying at it looked like something out of Jurassic Park so I think on a normal day, it would be great. Just don't go on a hot humid morning when there are heat advisories. ;-) It... More

We took a hike down to the raging waters. Sat on a rock and watched the Whirlpool boat tours go by. Very cool! All paths are marked. Bring water and a camera and wear good tenners or hiking shoes. It's free and nature at its best!

Fantastic nature just 2 min away from the quite hectic city off Niagara Falls. Take the time to drive from the city uo to Niagara on the Lake.

We took the WeGo bus out to the Niagara Glen Trails. You start by descending via stairs (about 8 floors) to pick up the trail system. Then you descend further down in to the gorge via a 3-4 trail loops. The Blue trail runs along the river and there are a few spots where you can hike right down to... More
