Aanii to all who enjoy the Niagara Escarpment Biosphere. To hike the trails within this region is eye-opening to the beauty nature provides for us. We get to stand along the edge of and see for miles in both directions. Some trails are rough but some paths are worn from avid hikers checking out the seasons. As you walk out in these nature trails you will find such a variety of growth. Spring growth is fragrant with new growth. Summer has such amazing trees and flowers all along the trail. We have waterfalls that are just amazing. Springs are also found throughout so you can get a refreshing drink. Fall shows us colors in nature that creation has painted for us. Enjoy these walks, protect these trails, for this is a gift for all to enjoy.
