This nature reserve provides representative examples of Niagara Escarpment cliff and ravine habitats, including forested slopes and wetlands. Talus slopes and cave and crevice development are also present. The reserve protects a number of rare or uncommon plant species, including an outstanding variety of ferns, some of which are restricted in their Ontario distribution to the Niagara Escarpment. No facilities are provided for visitors. Camping, off-road vehicles, mountain biking, rock climbing and hunting are not permitted. The Bruce Trail passes through the park offering hiking and nature appreciation opportunities. Visitors are asked to respect the sensitive Escarpment features.
