Now that it looks like spring has finally arrived here’s a few suggestions as to how to dust off the winter cob webs.
Take a hike along one of the well-marked trails found in Dufferin islands just off the Niagara River above the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Parking is free and so is the nature.
Another trail for those in shape is to take the nature trails to the lower Niagara River at the Niagara Glen. Parking is also free at this location. Corey Burant, Parks Stewardship Coordinator suggests you wear a good pair of hiking boots and be sure to stay on the designated trails. The walk down to the bottom of the gorge is fairly easy, coming back up the trails and the stairs is another matter.
If biking is your thing the Niagara Parks Recreation Trail which runs parallel to the Niagara River from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario is now open. This trail is completely accessible to wheel chair users. No motorized bicycles please.
This is the perfect time to see the immergence of new life in Niagara.
