Great hike down the escarpment to the rivers edge, near the Whirlpool and the Great Wolf Lodge. The hiking trails start out with steps and then the trail goes over rocks, fallen trees beside some trickling water. The trail was bit muddy in parts mainly...More

Hiking along Niagara escarpment, great to get away from crowds. Bring appropriate footwear. STep climb, some stairs, but still suitable for kids. My kids, 10 and 8 had no problems. Bring a picnic and chill by the Niaraga river. Highly recommend, please to reconnect with...More

Sunny day and we walked to the whirlpool. Parking paid for by the hour or for a day otherwise no charge. Trails not well marked but easy to follow. Definitely need walking shoes as there is mud (day after rain) and lots of rocks. Day...More

This area was underconstruction when we went. They are adding some kind of adventure park and fixing the lookout plat form. We were not permitted to go to lookout platform d/t this. But Gorge looked scenic from other areas.

This is a stop away from the bustle of down town but breath taking. The wooded walkway offers great views and photo opportunities.

The Glen nature trails are open year round. The paths and steps are mainly made of uneven nature stones, and therefor VERY slippery in wet conditions. They are NOT maintained in the winter. Enter is always at OWN risk! The... More

Hello, I am in good shape and walk extensively. However, I don't think my knees would stand up to that many stairs. Do I understand correctly that there are also trails at the top (so no stairs) that take you along the river as well? If so, would you recommend Niagara Glen or Dufferin Islands more?
