My husband and I spent our day here. The water was beautiful, the trail was awesome and the view's were spectacular! It was fun to watch the whirlpool boats going up and down the river as well!! So peaceful and we enjoyed this so much more then actually walking through the crowds to see the falls! Bring lots of fluids... More

If you are visiting the Falls this is a great place to hike around! We always visit this site when we are at the F like a falls. There are many hiking trails to walk and some will take you down to the rapids or even the whirlpool! The only way down is a metal stairwell like a fire tower... More

Amazing location to get away from craziness of the crowds at the Falls. Just a short drive and you will feel so far away from it all yet still see the water from the falls. Work your way down to the water edge if you can!

We really enjoyed our visit to Niagara Glen. We hiked down to the bottom of the gorge and then along the river, which is really impressive! The hike was slightly rigorous, but not too challenging for 9 year olds in sneakers, so not all that difficult. The rock formations are really impressive. It feels like a world away from the...

First a warning--it's a long, steep walk from the top to the bottom, starting with a metal staircase of 70 stairs. From there it's mostly rock steps, still going down. Once you get down in there, however, you will be amazed at the geology of this amazing place. There are little caves and huge, river-carved boulders. The tree canopy and... More

The Glen has been our favourite place to go in the Niagara region. It starts as a nice picnic area, but the real beauty is down the metal staircase and on the paths down to the river. So skip the Falls, where ridiculous tourists hang their kids up on the edge for pictures, and go where it's so much nicer!... More

This is one of the activities that I'm sure gets overlooked. You can get into the park for free (however, you might want to take the Wego) Once in the park, there are several trails that take you right down to the edge of the Niagara River. If you go down to the Cripps Eddy, you can wade into the... More

We stopped at the nature area after seeing the falls because we wanted to experience more of the gorge and the river. The Niagara Glen Nature Area has a network of trails along a beautiful section of the river. There is an 80 step staircase down to the trails. The main trail runs along the top of the gorge wall...

I took the stairs down(90 of them !), walking through the woods, along the Niagara River. I took a lot of pictures. I spent some time by the water, watching the speed boats jumping over the waves. There was so many of them. I was laying on the rock, listening the River... It's a great place. Even on the top... More

You must be fit for this walk as you go down a big stairs. The walk below is like something out of Lord of the Rings. Very quiet, very green and really easy to travel.
