Why choose a trail at Ragged Falls?

The Ragged Falls are a series of waterfalls located in Ontario, Canada. The falls are part of the Niagara River, which flows from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. The Ragged Falls are located about halfway between the two lakes, and can be reached by hiking trails from either direction.
