It's a geological wonder. The escarpment formed the old shoreline of Glacial Lake Iroquois which appeared after the last ice age. When you are up close to the escarpment you can see it looks like clay which has been baked and cracked. In fact parts of the 'alluvial deposits" which are sediments that have been reshaped by the water, had settled westward to form the Toronto Islands that exist now.

Keep in mind though there are plenty of access points along the escarpment where there are no barriers, and erosion does occur along the edges and certain conditions like rain or snow can make the clay-like sandstone extremely slippery when wet. Common sense takes precedence over curiosity here. Especially since there are so many vantage points along the bluffs for great views without risking your life to do it :)
