Niagara Escarpment

A unique natural wonder

The Niagara Escarpment is the most prominent topographical feature of southern Ontario. The area features a wide variety of forests, farms, recreation areas, cliffs, wetlands, animal habitats, historic sites, towns, and – needless to say – scenic views. The Escarpment’s ecosystem is one of the most diverse in Ontario, with many different species of birds, reptiles and other animals.

As you’d expect, there’s no shortage of things to do around the Escarpment, regardless of the time of year. The topography makes the area ideal for skiing, camping, water sports, hiking and simply viewing. Canada’s oldest path – the Bruce Trail – is also in the area, following the edge of the Escarpment. Hikers will find many beautiful waterfalls along the Trail as well as a wide range of plant and wildlife.
