You must cant imagine how beautiful all of the plantings are along the Parks Garden Trail. The hanging baskets and the street plantings are just out of this world. Worth the trip to NOTL just to see their plantings and to ride the trail.
The trail wends along the Niagara River from Fort Erie by Niagara Falls to Niagara-on-the-Lake. The part north of Niagara Falls is the most spectacular as it goes by the gorge, the giant whirlpool, the gardens, hydro electric plants and down the escarpment to the...More
The Niagara Parks Garden Trail is a great place to connect to nature and enjoy the beauty of the area. The flower gardens and landscaping are wonderful especially in the summer time when everything is in full bloom. We enjoyed it a lot!
It was a beautiful day and the gardens were lovely. They had a small section of the gardens cornered off as they were filming a television show. We should have asked what it was. Some unusual plants, some of which we have never seen and...More
Great. Just great. A perfect long wide walkway all along the river and falls. We went both daytime, and again for the free 10 pm fireworks. We parked effectively in town toward NE side, and about 1 block in from the river, for about $3...More
We have visited Niagara Falls this rainy day of August. Anything to describe is beyond words. Beautiful surroundings, beautiful flowers around the area. The falls is an attraction beyond expectations or something to imagine but to see it alive. The falls are drawing you inside...More
We spent the night in Niagara Falls to see them lit at night and then the next morning biked a section of this trail between Niagara Falls and Fort George. It is a very nice trail and not a lot of traffic, at least not...More

Hi! In addition to biking the trail I've also walked it from Niagara on the lake (NOTL) to Niagara Falls. In my opinion, the best part of the walk is the section between NOTL and Queenston (about the halfway mark so about 12K. There are lots of gorgeous homes and properties along the river to admire as you walk, in addition to many wineries you can stop in at and sample their stock. We ate a good lunch at a nice spot right along the trail, maybe about 4 or 5 K from where we started in Fort George in NOTL but I can't remember the name of it :-(
It looked like there was lots of parking at Fort George so I'd recommend starting there and just walk for however long you feel like along the trail. You can get your 4-5 miles in no problem. Not sure if the parking there is free or not, we bussed it there from Niagara Falls.
There were also plenty of little picnic areas with parking along the trail between Queenston and NOTL so you could also start your walk at any of them if you find an area you'd like to explore.
Have fun and enjoy the scenery!
