This park has provincially significant geological features related to glacial and post-glacial processes along one of the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment. Features include meltwater channels, moraine and talus slopes. Over 400 species of vascular plants have been identified in the park. Although the park area is without facilities, and camping is not permitted, visitors may enjoy hiking, nature appreciation, fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling on designated OFSC trails. The Bruce Trail passes through the park. Pretty River Valley is part of the Niagara Escarpment Parks system and the Niagara Biosphere Reserve. Visitors are asked to respect the natural features, which are sensitive and easily damaged.
