There are hundreds of kilometers of great trails in the region, but since we’re in Niagara, let’s start with the trail that goes by the falls. The Niagara River Recreation Trail is a scenic, paved path that starts at Fort George in Niagara-on-the-Lake in the north and extends 58 kilometres to the Town of Fort Erie at the south end of the peninsula. At about the halfway point, it passes the famous Horseshoe Falls.

The other major trail system that starts in this region is the Bruce Trail, which starts at Queenston Heights and takes a diagonal path for 773 kilometres through southern Ontario to the tip Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula.

The region offers many themes you can follow and Niagara Attractions you can see as you explore the trails. It’s rich in history with many significant War of 1812 sites, wine and agriculture, hydro-electric power, fascinating transportation sites highlighted by the Welland Canal and a number of rail trails, unique natural habitats that include marshes, Carolinian woodlands and the escarpment, and of course the breathtaking Falls and Niagara Gorge. The region features many towns and villages that are well worth a visit for their charm and history.
