We wandered around parts of this trail by car and on foot. It is delightful country with interesting places to stop off and look at the fort, waterfront, old pumping house and gardens. I wish we had more time to do it justice.
Parked the car and went for a beautiful walk. With benches along the way to sit down relax and take in the beauty that Niagara has to offer. We found a beautiful place right by the water to sit down and just listen to the...More
This is a very well maintained trail that is great for relaxing. The trail weaves along the river as you head towards the lake. It is comfortable walking trail with many beautiful plants and flowers. Well shaded, it is easily accessible during all parts of...More
I’ve been a serious cyclist for over forty years and I have to say that the Niagara Parks Garden Trail is my new favorite bike path. It’s lovely, paved, tree-lined path runs for miles-- a total of 58 between Niagara-on-the-Lake and Fort Eire-- along the...More

Hi! In addition to biking the trail I've also walked it from Niagara on the lake (NOTL) to Niagara Falls. In my opinion, the best part of the walk is the section between NOTL and Queenston (about the halfway mark so about 12K. There are lots of gorgeous homes and properties along the river to admire as you walk, in addition to many wineries you can stop in at and sample their stock. We ate a good lunch at a nice spot right along the trail, maybe about 4 or 5 K from where we started in Fort George in NOTL but I can't remember the name of it :-(
It looked like there was lots of parking at Fort George so I'd recommend starting there and just walk for however long you feel like along the trail. You can get your 4-5 miles in no problem. Not sure if the parking there is free or not, we bussed it there from Niagara Falls.
There were also plenty of little picnic areas with parking along the trail between Queenston and NOTL so you could also start your walk at any of them if you find an area you'd like to explore.
Have fun and enjoy the scenery!
