Definitely worth adding to your itinerary. The power of the water going through the gorge is humbling. We could've stayed longer. At first glance at the map they give you, you might think you can walk there - DON'T. It's a 10-15 minute bus ride....More

If you have had enough of battling the crowds around The Falls and Clifton Hill, check out the peaceful hiking trails of Niagara Glen. You can park and hike for free. Free is a novel concept in Niagara! Near the Niagara Glen Nature Center is...More

I highly recommend this over some of the crowded activities at the falls. There are 6 trails you can take. I hiked about 6 miles down the gorge to Devils bend stairs past the whirlpools to the bottom of the gorge. Amazing peaceful views. Nature...More

This is a great way to get away from the crowds around the falls. The trail takes you north along the American side the Niagra Gorge, through some nicely undeveloped areas and past several of the whirlpools. This trail runs parallel to the closed lanes...More

Nice walk along the river, nice shade trees. The parks were being renovated while we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy getting too close to the river.

We waited until our last night to walk the trail, and it didn't cost us anything. Get away from the commercial part of Niagara Falls and enjoy some nature. Wear good walking shoes and be prepared to climb steps in some places.

From easy to super hard, these trails can give everyone an awesome experience. So beautiful and truly a nature lover's dream. Hot tip: make sure that if you hike low you have non slip shoes - the rocks are killer wet!

The main parking lot for the park is $10 flat rate. It was full both days we went there and had to pay $20 flat rate at the nearby lot.

Completely agree with the other reviewer. There are a Lot of metal steps leading down into the gorge but other than than you'll have choices of how hard to make the trail. Do take water etc though. There's nothing anywhere... More
