A hike on the Niagara Glen Trail in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, provides visitors with spectacular views of the Niagara River and the whirlpool. Located in the Niagara Gorge, stairways lead to four kilometers of rugged hiking paths that wind through an old growth Carolinian Forest. This moderately challenging route is a popular area for birding, snowshoeing, hiking and bouldering.The rugged terrain of the Glen, with its rock formations and steep cliffs, offers a challenge to hikers as they navigate the trails. The Niagara Glen Trail is open all winter, but not maintained. The lack of snow on our visit provided the perfect opportunity for us to easily explore the trails. The staircases and stone stairs can become quite slippery when wet, so visitors are reminded that hiking on these trails is at their own risk. Do not miss an opportunity to visit one of Niagara’s top winter hiking spots, the Niagara Glen Trail in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
