Niagara Glen

The Niagara Glen is a unique area of the Niagara River carved out between 7,000 and 8,000 years ago as the erosive forces of Niagara Falls passed through here.

Designated as a Nature Area in 1992, the Niagara Glen presents a fascinating study in provincially rare flora and Carolinian forest types and is an important birding area. Hikes through the Niagara Glen involve an elevation change of over 60-m. (200-ft).

Proper footwear, suitable for steep and rugged terrain is required. Guided Rim Tours also provide an informative, easy stroll along the top of the Glen. Available in summer season only.
