My wife and I hiked this amazing area. Take the Wego bus or pay 5.00 to park. Walk down lots of steps then you are on your way. Follow well marked trails. To a great view of the Niagra River and plenty of rock formations. Picnic areas up top anong with a nature center and rest rooms.

A great spot for a short and mildly challenging hike. Beautiful views .Paying for parking is new from previous times I've gone.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but our trip to the Niagara Glen in many ways eclipsed our trip to the falls. If you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the falls, take the bus north and come check this place out.
Even on a hot day, this hike down to the eddy was enjoyable in every way. We took the cliffside trail and then came up the Niagara shore. Beautiful spots were around every bend.
And, the nature guides enticed my sons to go on a photo scavenger hunt, searching for plants, mushrooms, fossils, rock formations and more. With every photo, they earned points which they could then use to "buy" fossils, rocks and shells on display in the nature center.
The four of us had a blast looking for fossils, looking up plants and insects, and just connecting to nature. And our efforts were rewarded with amazing rocks and fossils that the boys were able to keep. We all loved it.
The trails are well maintained and makred, but lots of rocks, so wear good shoes and bring water.
Make sure you take the eddy trail. At the bottom, our boys got to dip their feet in the Niagara River, which they loved.
If you love being outside, you'll love this.

There are several trails along the gorge to hike and explore. Wear good hiking shoes or boots. Bring water and snacks. There is also lots of picnic areas. It is a fun site to visit. The small shop near the trail has some interesting historical and geological items and trivia.

This was a really well marked trail. A helpful guide at the visitor centre recommended a route for us. The trails were easy to follow. There were several places that you could get really close to the river and watch the jet boats cross the rapids on their way up to the whirlpools. As it was a very hot day we were glad of the shade provided by the forest.
