- Over looks Niagara River.- good view of boats. Shady in morning and sunny in afternoon. Good for recreational bicycling - relatively flat.Written August 16, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Great new trail recently restored from an old rail line. Travels south from the Pillar and Post hotel to East-West Line, just under 2k. It is well maintained and travels through woods and hooks up to other trails nearby on Parks Canada properties.Written September 9, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

There was another lake inside the forests. It was beautiful as well.

- The Niagara River Recreation Trail is lengthy. It runs from Fort Erie to Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Although many sections of it are suitable more for bicyclists, there are sections that are just as appropriate for hikers, walkers, and trekkers.
During a visit to Canadian friends, I trekked part of the Niagara River Recreation Trail independently on a day when I had free time away from my group. I visited the sections of the trail in Queenston Heights Park and Queenston Heights National Historic Site.
I found this to be a very scenic and very easy trail as it was pretty flat and paved at the sections I trekked.
This part of the trail is designed for use by everyone visiting Brock’s Monument the Laura Secord Monument, and the surrounding points of interest.
I rate the Niagara River Recreation Trail at 5.0 and recommend a visit on bicycle or on foot.
