Site Look

The site look and layout is all new with a more dynamic look with a parallax motion feature. The look of the site will change with the seasons to match the colours of the seasons.

The Hikes

The Hikes have all been updated with improved information in many cases and with the addition of more details about the hiking area along with comments and personal observations. The waypoint-to-waypoint data has been moved to its own page. A new icon row links from the main hike page to all of the other information. Nine new hikes have been added to bring the total to 54.

Waterfalls Series

An all-new series featuring about 45 waterfalls along the Niagara escarpment. A classification and rating system is applied to each waterfalls. We believe the rating system may be a first for waterfalls sites in North America. In addition you'll find full waterfalls statistics including location maps and maps of area trails near the waterfalls suitable for a walk or hike in the area. We round out each falls with a selection of videos that present the waterfalls in different situations plus information for the adventurous only.
