Niagara Parks offers superior cycling for all ages on our 53 kilometre Niagara River Recreation Trail. As part of larger trail systems that include the Trans Canada Trail, the Waterfront Trail, the Greater Niagara Circle Route and the Greenbelt Route, the Niagara River Recreational Trail borders the winding Niagara River and travels past numerous historical sites, attractions, restaurants and natural areas.
Constructed in 1986, the Niagara River Recreation Trail is a paved path for non-motorized traffic and is divided into four scenic sections stretching from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Fort Erie. It takes one to two hours to pedal leisurely through each these sections: Niagara-on-the-Lake to Queenston; Queenston to the Whirlpool Aero Car; Chippawa to Black Creek; Black Creek to Fort Erie.
