Ontario’s Niagara Escarpment
Hidden waterfalls. Rare orchids. Endangered reptiles. Wind currents that allow raptors to glide effortlessly on its currents for hours. These are just a few of the reasons that the Niagara Escarpment has been designated a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The scenic section of this 750-kilometre ridge of fossil-filled rock that runs all the way from Niagara to Tobermory offers endless inspiration for exploring. Climb its rocky peaks. Hike its quiet, Carolinian forest-covered trails. Icepick your way up a frozen waterfall. Ski down its snowy slopes. Discover a whole new league of fun that’s been 450 million years in the making.
Niagara Nature Tours promotes low impact educational ecotourism experiences including options such as Birds the Word, Ponds, Lagoons and Lazy Loons, Kettling Raptor Migration, On Nature’s Fitness Trail and more.
Perhaps we’re a little biased, but Niagara’s a great place for cyclists. Whether you’re just checking out a few wineries or want to do some non-alcoholic sightseeing, there’s no better way to see Niagara than from a two-wheeled perspective.
