Checking in from the Upper Canada Heritage Trail, an old railway bed that takes you from the Escarpment through wine country and into Niagara-on-the-Lake
As you get further from Queenston the Bruce Trail takes a turn and drops down onto the slope of the Escarpment towards the villiage of St. Davids.

Checking in from the ruins of a 19th century natural concrete operation, built into the side of the Niagara Escarpment just a few feet from the Bruce Trail path.
