The park is well kept up, there are clean facilities and picnic tables. Free to enter and park. Access to nice trail along the upper ridge of the Niagara and also stairs to the lower level.

My husband and I parked our truck ( free parking) and started our ride on the trails along the gorge. The scenery was amazing and the ride was a challenge but not too difficult. We rode down to goat island and had a great afternoon
