Though the Falls are incredible and are a must see, consider visiting other areas and sites nearby as well. There are plenty of other excursions to take, that will lead you to unique destinations – some of which, you can only see in the Niagara region.

Leisurely Autumn Hikes

With Niagara Falls, comes a beautiful escarpment and even more gorgeous trails to hike. These hiking trails hug the escarpment slopes leading into the river, giving visitors an exhilarating, self-guided experience. Various trails are scattered around the Niagara Falls area, and have lots to offer in terms of adventure, views and photo opportunities.

Walk through relatively-flat, but slightly rocky paths which are generally kid and family-friendly or hike your way through escalating stairs and boulders. Either trail you take ends in a breathtaking view of the gorge, river and whirlpool.
