This small park located on the top of the Niagara Escarpment has something for everybody.

Starting off there is a stone-packed trail which loops around a climbable look-out tower which you can see some of the scenic vistas of the Niagara Escarpment.

the far end of the stone-packed loops provides access to the trailhead which has several easy to medium hikes to choose from.

Keeping left on the main trail you will come to a small beaten path through the woods which will take you to an old quarry which was mined over a hundred years ago and provides a unique opportunity to see how nature has reclaimed the area as well as some impressive rock structures to climb as well as photograph. Just beside the rock quarry is a break in the rocks where you can see a good percentage of the neighboring town Grimsby, and beautiful views of Lake Ontario.

Returning to the main trail along the stone-packed pathways there are numerous look-outs built into the rocks and made safe with steel railings.

Following them around you will come to a series of stairs and can access two of the beautiful and large waterfalls which dot the Niagara Escarpment. If you decide to leave the trails, there are other waterfalls up-stream which you can visit.

Sadly, this is a day-use only trail as most trails in the Niagara Area, but is worth seeing and has some great photo opportunities even if the trails are relatively easy.
