fall18During the winter months, the site’s proximity to the mists from Niagara Falls causes the shelf and surrounding areas to be covered by a thin sheath of ice, which has been captured by many photographers.

The most notable rockfall occurred in July 1850, when roughly one-third of the point collapsed into the Niagara Gorge.

In 1818, the first part of the rock collapsed, followed by minor rockfalls in 1828 and 1829.

Table Rock is a popular stop for tourists.

Revealed in the mid-18th century as the Horseshoe Falls receded, Table Rock was the first major vantage point for tourists of the early and mid-19th century.

The Table Rock Welcome Centre is located on Niagara Parkway and is linked to the higher Fallsview Tourist Area by the Falls Incline Railway.

A driver was washing his carriage on the point when the rock structure gave way.

For safety purposes (with the Ontario Powerhouse directly in the gorge below), the remaining rock was blasted in 1935.

As part of Niagara Airbus Niagara Falls Tours, Table Rock, is a historic site that visitors enjoy for many reasons.
