  • Great Niagara Parks Trail running along the river, great for a family stroll or bicycling. We drive to Niagara and especially love to wander the trails. 
  • The motorcycle noise is annoying; otherwise, always an enjoyable walk. The Trail is spacious and never feels crowded. 
  • Easy trails for short hikes- most scenic in the Fall. Slight inclines and stairs near escarpment. Not much wildlife to see.
