Nice and open pathway, wide path for walking or biking. Fairly well marked and mostly shaded. A few areas are bumpy for road bikes but overall it beats riding on the road with stoplights.

This is a nice area with some trendy bars and restaurants (and a brewery). The views from the bridge are cool and there is a little history to the place. Check it out

great for mountain biking - not so great for thin tires - flat, shady, and with links to other trails...

I should have thought about it, as it is in the same geological area Niagara Falls is in, but I really was taken by surprise. Definitely worth the walk, which is neither too long nor strenuous. At least go see the higher falls, although the lower falls is nice too.

Most beautiful and attracts every body old or young. I enjoyed walking daily. Here nature talks to the human being which one can feel if he stays for long.

Lovely walk for a sunny afternoon. We just had a stroll and got lost twice. I believe you can follow the trail for miles. Maybe next time...
