The Niagara Escarpment begins in Watertown New York, USA and ends on the Manitoulin Island in the Province of Ontario, Canada. It is 1,609 kilometers in length and is the weathered edge of a very ancient sea bottom. Throughout its length from Hamilton, Ontario to Watertown, New York the escarpment ranges from 183 meters (600 feet) above sea level to 189 meters (620 feet) above sea level. The Niagara, Ontario Escarpment is the ultimate reason the Falls of Niagara was born. Without the escarpment, the Falls may never have materialized.
