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.
