Many people enjoy the Niagara Glen. When you descend down the initial stairs then the pathways below you might never see more than a couple of people and feel you are the first to discover this natural gem. You will be in the area where the falls were thousands of years ago. See large rocks where they tumbled, the different... More

The Glen or "The Gorge" to locals is the best natural site around. It's beautiful, winding, and a fun adventure! If you are in Niagara you have to visit!

Really enjoyed this walk, lovely photograph opportunities along the boardwalk. Amazing to be so close to such rough rapids - it doesn't look as rough from afar !!

We spotted people on the shore by the whirlpool as we took our Aero Car ride. Hubby wanted to go down there, and wondered how to get there. A minute later, the cable car commentator (that doesn't seem right, what do you call them? guide? conductor?) was explaining just that: go along to the next car park and hike down... More

Been to Niagara a million times and did this walk/hike for the first time today. Great trails and lovely views. Can imagine how nice it is in the summer and fall. Not a hard hike but definitely need to be stable on your feet and not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Highly recommend it. The boulders are pretty cool.

We went on a 3 hour hike on Christmas Day, it was absolutely beautiful. Although the trails are not marked well, we took the high trail on the edge of the rocks and when we got to the end it was just a cliff. We doubled back and climbed down the side of the mountain to the river walk make... More

I never expected this. Took a long staircase down into the gorge and boom, right in front of my eyes is a deceptively large set of trails that goes on for kilometers, inside and throughout the gorge area. Amazing!

Make sure you follow the coulored markers so you don,t get lost!! Very senic trails but very slippery on certain areas of the rocks. I went by myself not a good idea, please go in couples. Very steep in some areas. When I went there was no one else to be seen. So be very careful not to get lost,... More

Have a few hours and go for this hike on a nice day...not too hot or cold or rainy. Take a lightweight lunch with you to eat when you get to the rock at the whirlpool... and of course don't leave your garbage behind. We always walk halfway around the whirlpool and then straight back and up the stairs which... More
