Niagara Glen Nature Reserve, Niagara Falls Reviews
The nature trails are great. Very scenic. Especially great if you like bouldering. The shop sells the newest guidebook, chalk, brushes and other things you might need. The nature center itself is really awesome too. Definitely check out the nature reward system they have. You'll learn a lot and the staff is very knowledgeable. Big shoutout to Nate for being so helpful and teaching us so much about our recent fossil finds!
An excellent way to get up close to the Niagara River while seeing fantastic rock layers and formations along the way. It's a view you can't get from the top. I am glad I found this place, and stop in every time I'm on this side of the falls. I would recommend it to anyone who is fit for some steep hiking. Stay on the path and you'll be fine.
The hiking here is beautiful but can be a bit challenging so wear proper foot wear and expect a bit of a climb plus a lot of stairs. If you want to Boulder you have to buy a permit BUT it includes parking fees and is good for the year. Don't make my mistake and pay at the metre if you're buying the climbing permit
Walk past the picnic area, down the stair tower and a short distance along the incline and find yourself in a stunning wooded glen along the edge of the Niagara river. Easy trails hikes, super cool boulders and the frothy River downstream from the falls. The best cheap date or family activity in the Niagara region. The interpretative center is very helpful too, stop in there first if you want tips on what to look for.
Great hiking near by. Bring good foot wear can be rocky. And make sure to bring water. Also do not go into the river, if water is low its because power plant is using it. Rocks that look dry suddenly will not be.
