Descending the steel stairs of the Niagara Gorge you will find access to dozens of trails which criss cross this amazing and picturesque area.

Giant house-sized boulders dot the landscape as they have broken away from the gorge walls over time.

Unusual and rare flowers and ferns can be found throughout the gorge.

The trails can be demanding - especially the hike back up the big set of steel steps but can be done in Tevas or barefoot for the hardy. The trails are well marked and easy to navigate.

There can be a lot of hikers on these trails in the warm months, and you can make your way off-trail down to the edge of the mighty and deadly rapids of the Niagara river to stand in awe of it's power.
