The water in this river is bluer than most and just wonderful to observe. We spent about an hour and a half hiking in total. We went down to the water following the blue path and explored a few of the other paths as well....More

We paid to park in the lot, which there was plenty of spaces. We got here early in the morning. Our kids are ages 5,7,9, and 11. They all really enjoyed the hike, and loved taking turns leading the way. Some of the paths were...More

I like the wooden stairs, but it seems that there's basically one way down and one way up. The metal stairs however, have many options for the direction you want to take. It's even safe to make your own trails if you feel like being...More

Many trails after descending about 5 floors of stairs. Through large boulders or along the Niagara River edge. Different birds and plants. Need to be able to hike moderate difficulty

Wow, it was fun. Beautiful views, awesome trails. But if you're not in great shape or so sure on your feet you might want to pass.

Amazing sights to grasp of these 10,000 year old cuts in stone which opened the river. The area is cared for in an exceptional manner by Niagara Parks.

Nice place to get away from the crowds and have a quiet moment with your sweetheart or spouse. Usually a nice cool breeze for a break on a hot day.

Amazing to be standing by the roaring water's edge and looking up at the water instead of down, as it swells up higher to get through the narrow gorge

Beautiful park. Great hike good for all fitness levels. The only bad thing is that you have to pay for parking.

My family really enjoyed this area but make sure you give yourself enough time. Based on reviews on this site, I assumed parking would be free. When we went 2 days ago, parking was $1.25/hour (pay by credit car at parking machines). There were staff...More

It is between the Botanical Gardens (Butterfly Conservatory) and the new zipline adventure. You will see a large parking lot that is completely open to the road and a stone building that looks like a train station (it was... More

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?
