a deep gorge, plunging over a falls. Geological features that were
deposited or carved out by retreating glaciers, such as kame hills
and kettle lakes, surround the river. The park also includes some

Hiking and picnicking are favourite activities here. Visitors
may fish but hunting is forbidden. Open year-round, the park is
popular in winter for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Forks of the Credit is part of the Niagara Parks System, and the
Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve. Limited facilities include
a parking lot, picnic tables, viewing platforms, toilets and marked
trails. There is no camping in the park.
