I went twice for a 2 jhour hike and took the closed trail, to my own risks and had a lot of fun. Not a huge nature area but for a quick hike, it's perfect. The Niagara river is gorgeous.

Accessible to all and challenging if need be!

The area contains of multiple trails, each with it's own color and attractions.

I thought it was hard to stay on the same path since the marks are not that visible that shows you which trail you are on right now. Sometimes you really need to stop and look around for the marks.

My favorite trail is the blue one, which takes you down to the river. It's really peaceful down there and the nature around is beautiful.

One of the coolest hiking trails we have been on. Though it's a bit rugged we have three kids (16, 12, and 11) who really enjoyed it. Hike goes all the way down to the white water!

It is certainly off the beaten path, but it is worth a visit. There's an upper portion to the park and then you walk down a metal staircase to the lower portion of the park where there are lots of areas to explore. Unfortunately, the trail map is a rough guide AND the trail markers are difficult to follow as it does not correspond to the trail map. Bring your sense of adventure and it's not too big of an area to explore (about 4 km of trails). The trails are not well groomed, but that's the great part of this area. It's natural. Expect to get a bit lost amongst the trails, but it's part of the fun exploring. There are enough people that you can ask for directions (i.e. did they came from the stairway). Amazing views of the gorge as well as the white water of the Niagara river.

loved the area clean and well kept, lots to do, some great walks (but in the hot weather you must take water on the trail, advisable to buy a brochure for $3.99 with all the trails on as some are longer and harder than the others, some steps to start with and at the end but its an adventure, saw some strange creatures and birds even saw a baby snake but its all part of the trail.
