Hikers, even moderate ones, will really enjoy these trails. There are beautiful views of the river gorge, large rock formations, and old tree glens. Parts of it can be hiked in a couple of hours. There is a map at the trail head but none within the trails. Strongly recommend to take a picture of the map on your phone... More

My husband and I hiked the Glen and had a wonderful time. Good views of the Niagara River, the Whirlpool, and Whirlpool Aerocar, and beautiful forest.

We were a full day in Niagara. ín the morning we went to the falls, in the afternoon we hiked here in this area. The trails are well marked and not too difficult. One trial (blua one if I remember correctly) will take you along the river. If you have to time, do go here as well as this is... More

Mother nature at her best with a great bus service to connect you to all the attractions. Forget the car and enjoy the ride.

Its a reasonably difficult walk. Lots of ups and downs, over rocks and narrow trails. Its a shame that there is realy no official signposting as to which trail you may be on as there are several to chose from and where to exit. You basically follow the trails and take pot luck. The views are incredible, you can get... More

Lovely hike along the river. Nicely-groomed paths, but trekking poles would have been helpful going down. Sturdy footwear is a must. You can download a map. There are several trails that are well-marked with different colored blazes.

Went for a hike here while husband was at a conference. If you can get over the original descent down the 70+ open stairs, this is a great rugged hike through giant rocks that came down as the sides of the Niagara River eroded. It was like going back in time. Fairly well marked trails, they could be better. Next... More

We only did a 3 km loop alongside of the Niagara River. Spilt a little by overhead helicopter rides and the speedboats ploughing the river on the 'rapids'. Still, a beautiful spot well worth visiting.

An amazing chunk of almost unspoiled nature along the side of the cataracts below the Falls. Well worth a walk on a hot day as it's cooler and shadier (and much less busy) than the surrounding commercial tourist traps

This is one of my favorite places in the world because it's got so many trails and things to see. When you go down there it's like your in a whole different biosphere. Been there many times in the past would recommend to anyone who can handle all the ups and downs and stairs.
