Outdoor Recreation Guide for the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area

Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper has developed an outdoor recreation guide for the tours we have led in the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area.  Based on the work of our experienced tour leaders, this guide provides maps, trails, paddles, and descriptions to help you get out and discover the natural beauty of the Niagara Falls National Heritage Area on your own.  Download a free copy of the brochure HERE.

Custom paddling, biking, and hiking programs are also available. To learn more about this option, please visit our Custom Programs webpage.
