This is a fantastic route that encompasses both natural beauty, history, and culture. It is a very easy ride as it is down hill most of the way. The Niagara Parkway Recreation Trail is the main path used for 90% of the journey which makes for a safe and comfortable ride. There are many opportunities to stop along the way to explore the natural landscape, learn about famous battles, taste some ice wine or indulge in the fresh local produce.
Some of the things you will see on this route:
- Rainbow Bridge
- Shoellkopf Power Plant Disaster
- Downtown Niagara Falls
- Royal Botanical Gardens
- Sir Adam Beck I and II Power Plants
- Queenston Heights
- Country Markets
- Wineries and Vineyards
- Fort George
- The beautiful town of NIagara-on-the-Lake
Plan for a full day. The ride can be completed comfortably in a couple hours but to fully enjoy the experience you will need to make many stops along the way. There are a number of places to get snacks and restrooms are never too far away. Many great places to picnic so packing your own lunch is a great idea.
