Good amount of parking; decent bathroom. This is where the gorge trail began. Nice hike, but you must watch your step.

We didn't know whether to stop here or not....but ever so glad we did. It is something to see and read about. Words can not discribe the experience and feeling we got when we were here. Truely is something you have to experience for yourself. What Mother Nature does is hard to believe at times. You even get an eerie feeling too. You will not be sorry if you decide to stop here as we did. Matter of fact... we came back to this area for a second time. Just hard to believe what we are seeing right before our eyes.

The views from this park to the river are wonderful. Easy walking paths down to the river and beautiful views.

My family including my senior mother and three outdoor friendly kids (13, 10, and 7) took on the Niagara River Gorge Trail. The views are beautiful but the trail has sustained some serious damage which makes it "difficult". The trail is popular and the trail-goers are very friendly. We went in July and the weather was perfect! Best part- free! One of out highlights of our Niagara-Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal trip! Wear proper shoes and bring plenty of water. Also, when we went the trail was not a loop because of storm damage.
