We will meet at the historic Niagara Glen and proceed down into the Niagara Gorge. I will show guests the ancient remnants of the origional rivers edge, explaining the history of the Niagara River and Niagara Falls. You will learn about the 325 million year old fossils, ancient creatures called Trilobbites. Further into the gorge, the famous potholes, I will explain this amazing geological wonder, how they were formed and the incredible physics behind it. We will then carry on into the amazing Carolinian Forest, to explore the ancient trees and fauna. At the bottom of the Niagara Gorge, we will experience the power of the Niagara River up close and personal. On the way back to the top of the Gorge, we will pass massive boulders that fell from the top of an ancient waterfall, and climb through the caves and passages formed by these boulders. All the time, you will have the chance to collect amazing photos and memories. I will guide you through the 3.5kms (2.2miles) of trails and share with you all the wonder.
My name is Lenny Burch, and I have been operating an outdoor adventure club for 11 years in Southern Ontario. (www.NiagaraAdventure.ca). I plan and guide day hikes, multi-day hikes, rock climbing lessons, and many other activities all year round. I am a certified rock climbing instructor as well as certified in Wilderness Advanced First Aid. I have personally guided over 200 day hikes and mulit-days hikes. I am highly experienced in hiking techniques, and have hiked some of the most difficult hiking trails in North America. My goal on this adventure is to help you enjoy the Niagara Glen, share my knowledge of the glen with you, and keep you smiling and safe all the while!
I will have with us, first aid supplies and a repair kit.
We will be visiting the Niagara Glen Nature Preserve, a protected area full of geological history. A stairway will lead us to 3.5 kilometres (2.2 miles) of rugged paths that wind through this pristine pocket of Carolinian Forest, past prehistoric geological formations, wild flora and fauna. The Niagara Glen and Niagara Gorge is an amazing piece of history that must be explored first hand.
