The Niagara Glen is a unique spot of beauty deep in the Great Gorge that has been a designated Nature Reserve since 1992.

The trails are well laid out and easily negotiated if you take your time, along the way there is lots of interesting geology and biology to explore. Click here for a copy of the Niagara Glen Trail Map.
