Create an itinerary including Niagara Gorge Trail
Just downstream from one of the world's most famous waterfalls, Niagara Gorge Trail affords a break from crowded viewing platforms and souvenir stands. Instead, this solitary loop trail offers tranquility and views of striking rock formations, soaring canyon walls, and the many rapids on the Lower Niagara River. Following the blue river along cliffs and through hardwood tree groves, the trail is not that strenuous but it still includes some steep sections where you'll have to watch your step over slippery rocks and gnarly roots. Make sure to bring plenty of water and snacks to refuel on your way out of the canyon.

  • This trail has been recently upgraded, and a gorgeous path meanders along the lower Niagara River and connects to the trail, itself. There is a bike rental nearby, at the Underground Railroad...

  • We walked the Niagara Gorge Trail on two separate days. The views are magnificent and seeing the rushing water is really a sight to be seen. The trail is easy, but can become muddy during wet weather.
