What a beautiful hiking trail! The terrain is constantly changing from flat rock to grass and soil and smaller rocks. Lots of twists and turns with a gently upward sloping trail. Fascinating rock formations with lichen and moss growing everywhere. Reminded us of scenes from...More

The moving of the parking lot has resulted in a steep, ladder-like obstruction. 15 minutes into the hike this is what you are confronted with. We had our hiking dog with us. Some shall we say less experienced elderly people came up behind us. Same...More

This short trail offers good panoramic views from vertical cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment. The trail is moderately challenging, with very steep stairs to two points that create a challenge for large dogs if you have pets. It only takes 2 hours return so make...More

If you go to cup and saucer and are physically able, you have to do the adventure trail portion of this hike. My kids and I had a blast. We brought a friend who later went back with her family too.

I saw a couple of people hiked with their dogs on the trail. However, some parts of the trail involve climbing a ladder/very steep stairs; so you might need to carry your dog up and down the ladder.
