Access to the Lion's Head Lookout is only available from the main trail entrance at the McCurdy parking lot or at the end of Cemetery Road (and currently numbers aren't monitored even though the trail is generally at over capacity during good weather days). The McCurdy parking lot is a small parking lot, with 4 porte-potties and trash/recycle bins, but no other facilities. Overflow parking is available at the Lion's Head Arena (near the LCBO on Ferndale Road) and just walk 1 km back to the McCurdy main trail entrance. NO PARKING is permitted on Moore St. (from hospital to the end of the road). Breathtaking views, vegetation varies throughout, and tricky rock sections.

Niagara Falls State Park

Length: 2.3 mi • Est. 56 m
Goat Island features several family-friendly and accessible paved trails around the island, as well as bridge access to sites such as Luna Island where you can see the American Falls and Bridal Falls close up. On the other side of the Island, Terrapin Point and Horseshoe Falls also have great views. The Rainbow Bridge can be used to cross over into Canada and see the Falls from a different angle. There is a $5 fee to park. In the winter, weather at Niagara Falls transforms the Park into an icy wonderland. Many Park attractions close for the season, but visitors can always see awe-inspiring Niagara Falls flow to the river below as it freezes and a thick layer of ice covers every surface. During winter, some of the trails closer to the water get icy and are closed. Accessibility: These trails are paved and typically at least three feet wide. There are a few steep sections where the grade is between 8% and 12% (such as on the trail to Three Sisters Islands and when rounding the corner at Terrapin Point) but the estimated average trail grade is 6%. Wheelchair/mobility equipment and stroller users may need assistance in the steep sections or need to avoid them. Parking, bathrooms, and picnic tables at Goat Point are newly ADA-compliant.Show more
