    Scenic Hiking
    We enjoyed hiking here. There are several trails on river side and hill side. WeGo green bus stops there. When we went there in the afternoon on weekday, there were not many people. We could walk in a quiet woods and heard unique voice of birds. There were some large rocks and you have to walk down or up on some smaller rocks. This course might be dangerous for small kids or elderly people. Niagara Glen is great place for people who think Niagara Falls downtown is too touristy.

    A peaceful hike away from Niagara Falls
    We took the WEGO green line to Niagara Glen and arrived around 9.45am on a Saturday. Once you alighted from the bus, you will see the Park Centre. Walk into the park and look for the sign board of the Trail and that will be the entrance down a tall iron staircase to the trailhead. From the staircase, you could hike either left or right around the Main Loop Trail. The Main Loop Trail along the Niagara River is very scenic. We just followed the colour signage and diverted into the orange Cobblestone Trail and turquoise River Trail. The turquoise River Trail will lead to a nice rocky river side good for pictures. All in all we finished hiking in 2 hours. The same WEGO bus stop where you alighted will be the same bus stop to board for a turnaround back to Table Rock direction.

    Niagara Glen is a hidden treasure
    I thoroughly enjoyed the hike through the Niagara Glen Nature Area. I had received recommendations from others while hiking, and this did not disappoint. There are scenic vistas, rushing waters, hills, and even a bouldering trail so you can watch people rock climbing. I also loved that this is a loop hike with alternate paths, so you can do as little or as much hiking as you want.

Spectacular! An easy hike with great views of the Niagara River the loop trail, and there are several shorter trails to select as well.

This is a lovely spot for some scenic hiking. I did wish that I had worn my hiking boots, rather than sneakers, as the trails are quite rough, but it is a really pretty area and you can get right down to the river for some lovely views. There is quite a large iron staircase to get to any of the hiking areas and we found the signage a little confusing at times, but it was a lovely way to spend an hour or so while visiting Niagara Falls.

A scenic area with well marked trails. Could get difficult in some parts.I saw a mink in the area near the parking lot. A good place for those interested in bouldering. Needs a permit though.

We visited the Niagara Glen in August 2022. The hike is actually a hike with rugged terrain and awesome views of the Niagara River. This is not a stroll on paved paths, so wear appropriate footwear.

Absolutely gorgeous area. I went in the off season so enjoyed the luxury of not many people. You do have to be very physically able as it does take 5 flights of stares to get up and down. I wouldn't feel comfortable with kids as the river is RIGHT THERE. However, as a solo hiker it was absolutely phenomenal. So much beauty.

My wife and I hiked the main trail and were blown away by the views, topography and the quality of the route. Trails were in immaculate condition, and I would suggest that this time of year is perfect to walk the trail, as your views of the river are unobstructed. My only complaint was the cost of parking is a little steep.

We stopped at the Glen Nature park to have lunch. There are tables and plenty of space. The park was very clean, and we were impressed with the views of the gorge from the park. We did not go down the stairs to reach the hiking trails, but this is an option if you have the time.

The parking is metered, but is part of the Niagara Parks Parking Pass, so all you have to do is place your pass on the dash.
