Went for the caves

The trails were enjoyable and the kids loved all the cave openings. You can not go very far into the caves without getting down on your stomach. I do want to go back as the trails... read more

The trails were enjoyable and the kids loved all the cave openings. You can not go very far into the caves without getting down on your stomach. I do want to go back as the trails were very easy and didn't require any climbing which will be great for my older dog. Also it was very unclear as to whether... More

PROS: • The trails, with pretty sections, vary from spacious to narrow. • It has benches throughout the area. I only saw one of the caves because I didn't grab a map--trust me and pick up a map at the entrance! CONS: The only drawback that I could see was a lack of signs.

This site has a few interesting geologic features although I can't say I was really blown away. If you visit you must do the longer yellow trail as the main karst formations are all located along the upper part of this route. The karst with the long narrow crevices were pretty eye-catching. This alone made the sight worthwhile in my... More

I recently was going up to the East Mountain movie theatre and decided to check out the Eramosa Karst Conservation area while I was in the area. I found it to be a hidden gem. It was a 1 1/2 block walk from the theatre so if you are going by public transit you just get off at Upper Mount... More

obviously they have deadended the road to get here. The directions on the pamphlet were wrong, but the website has the new ones....started down the trail before realizing that it was a pay parking lot. Awesome new bathrooms to use before you go. Trail signage was an issue for us and others we met on the trail. Having colour markings... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk through this well-maintained conservation area. It only costs $2/hr to park or $10/day. This is a small price to pay considering there is are clean washrooms with hot/cold water and soap! The caves are not deep, but very interesting nonetheless. A few parts were overgrown (Blue hole)...to be expected in August. We took a wrong... More

Minus the ticks (all part of being out in nature though) and the odd idiot with an offleash dog, Eramosa Karst is a very special place. There are a number of trails to check out with little caves to check out along the way. Once, while I was out on the trail, I happened upon some turkeys! Keep your eye... More

The reviews and naming of the geological features can set you up for disappointment here. Sinkholes, caves and natural amphitheatres invoke images of dramatic landscape. But if you bare in mind there is nothing deeper than 10 feet to be seen here you will no doubt have a pleasant hike in the woods. Just bare in mind you will not... More
