Niagara River Gorge Hike + Waterfront Picnic
You’ll feel like you are in Costa Rica, but you’re still in NYS. Wave across the water to the Canadians as we hike one of the most beautiful hiking trails of Niagara Falls with stunning views of the Niagara River Gorge and the striking blue green water.
The hiking trails of the Niagara River Gorge are one of the hidden treasures of the Western NY Region. Located in Niagara Falls, NY, 1.5 hours west of Rochester and 30 minutes north of Buffalo. We’ll be hiking along the gorge rim and descending numerous steps through a hardwood forest to the bottom of the gorge along the roaring water. The hike will be about 2 hours including a mid-hike energy ball. After the hike, we’ll head to nearby Lewiston Landing Park for a waterfront post-hike farm to table picnic. Dogs are welcome on this adventure if you have a well-behaved dog. Dogs must be leashed.
Tickets are $35 and include a mid-hike energy ball and farm-to-table picnic prepared by Chef Trish Aser at Brown Hound Downtown. This picnic is BYOBB (Beverage and Blanket). Bring plenty of water, beverage(s) of choice and a blanket or chair to sit on at the park. If you want to purchase beverages, there are restaurants within walking distance serving take-out food and drinks as well as ice cream. *You do not need to hike with your picnic supplies. the post-hike picnic is in a different nearby location.
