A rare opportunity to experience the power and beauty of the Niagara gorge while hiking down the paths. Free parking and hiking. Picnic area. Be careful of the steep inclines to get to the rapids. Trail markings and frequent other hikers will keep you from getting lost. Washrooms at the top only. About a 20 minute hike to the rapids.... More

Getting away from the top side noise and many people is just so easy. Down the stairs, along the walks and you are just transported miles away. You will hear the river and rapids, probably those tourist boats on the river, and maybe a helicopter if you get to a quieter area. Mostly you will hear the river, the birds,... More

This was a pretty cool view. We were visiting Niagara Falls in November, so it was pretty chilly, but still nice weather that we were able to walk around and view the falls and river from here. I would like to visit this attraction during the summer months as well.

Driving on Niagara Parkway you will find a picknick area about 1km south of the Botanical garden on your right hand side. There are stairs down to the bottom of the valley where you will find several walks along the white water of the river. Great photo spot if a speed boat comes along!

Niagara Glen is accessible by the WEGO bus service. Descending a high staircase allows access down into the gorge woodland, and then a network of paths gives access down to the river itself. This really is a pleasant relief from the massed crowds and shows a bit of what Niagara Falls would be like undeveloped.

While returning from Niagara Falls on Nov. 18, 2016, via Niagara Parkway, there were several designated parking areas where you could break your journey and enjoy the views from different angles, this one across the Butterfly Garden, at the Tourist Information Office.

We love hiking and so picked this spot when visiting Niagara Falls. It is a beautiful spot to visit...forest, escarpment and river views. Unfortunately, the signage is really confusing as there are lots of little side-trails. Someone selected ugly spray paint to mark the trails which looks like bad graffiti which is unfortunate.

We visited Ontario during the summer with the kids and the a white river waters are very impressive! Loved the walk along the river seeing the rapids was very refreshing in the very hot summer.
