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.

Park and walk along the top if your fitness levels are low. You can experience wonderful views from the top along good pathways. There is signage for the walks you can take and there are lots of steps. The whole Area is stunning and you hear the water all the time.

Highly recommend trails open all year round. Read the trail map before you go (download or take a picture with you) as the signs on the trails are not good (some of them are spray painted on the rocks - what a shame). Don't go at night. Don't get to close to the rapids (you probably know that). Free. Good... More

The Niagara Glen Nature Area (just south of the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory) is a hikers delight. Stairs lead you down the face of the gorge cliff to abundant walking trails wind through the forest and along the river edge. Time the walk right and you will witness jet boats roaring up river or riding the rapids down river (a... More

Have hiked the Niagara Gorge several times in the last few years. Always a good experience Pros- If you're visiting Niagara this is a great way to spend a free morning or afternoon. Awesome spot for a picnic. Just a short drive from the Falls it seems like a world away from the lights and tourist district of Niagara Falls.... More

Great place to hike, enjoy fauna, several trails. Dogs allowed, but fair warning, open steel stairs down. Love the peace enjoyed there xoxo. Great picnic areas too up top.

Hands down the best attraction that is rarely visited. Great for picnics, walks, hikes. Do not venture too far during the late evening hours or you might just get lost.

This is a beautiful hike to see the tail end of the falls. I took my bulldog and teenage daughter, altogether we did about 4 miles. There are several different trails or paths. The water is a stunning and beautiful aqua/emerald green. I would recommend wearing hiking or rain boots with traction, this is muddy and slippery. It goes up... More
