We were with two other families and between us we have 8 boys. They loved this excursion! They wanted to stay all afternoon exploring the different crevices that they could climb and get into. It is a difficult climb in some places so I wouldn't bring young children but great exercise!

This place offers a great opportunity to explore the rock cliffs of Georgian Bay. The caves are spectacular. The one hour+ hike is a little challenging at spots but they offer walking sticks to help with your balance. The caves are amazing and my 12 year old son loved exploring (they provide flash lights)! This was one of the highlights... More

We took 4 boys (ages 5 to 10) and they LOVED it. They were so excited they were yelling most of the time. What was great is that it was a quiet Sunday sunny afternoon in July and there were only 5 other people on the trail. So for most of the 2 hours we were there we didn't see... More

A wonderful hike of about an hour or more to see the natural ancient rock cliffs and the effects of erosion on the edge of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. We went in October at thanksgiving when the trees were glorious and the air crisp. The caves in either the Bruce Caves or the Greig Caves were used in the... More

We had been planning to visit the Caves for a couple of summers now, and we're wishing we hadn't waited so long! They offer flashlights if you forget to bring one, and walking sticks to use. Take the stick! Quite helpful for balance on those tricky narrow spots and for steadying yourself on the wobbly rocks. Make sure you wear... More

I agree with other reviewers -- wear hiking boots or good running shoes to explore the caves. The rocks are varying degrees of slippery, sharp and pointy, and wobbly and unstable. I laughed when my dad suggested bringing gloves, but now I think they would've been nice -- hands get scratched up a bit when crawling around/climbing out of some... More

Talk about engaged. We had 4 boys under 8 along for this tour and they were all engaged completely in the visit. The choice of footwear and long pants is VERRRRY important and if it's rained recently it may be slippery. Don't bring something to hold in your hands, you'll need to have your hands to climb and clamber over... More

Just visited this week on Lake Huron circle tour. Rugged trail but very beautiful scenery. Just what we were looking for ... Lots of natural beauty. Our eleven year old son loved the freedom of exploring every nook and crany of the caves. Nice and cool on a very hot day... Loved it. Wouldn't advise for anyone who had trouble... More

We had a great time hiking about and crawling through the caves...reasonably priced and a really great little hike....we all enjoyed ourselves and it started our mini vacation off wonderfully....I would highly recommend this...the trail might be difficult for people who are not able to climb over the rocks on the trail...highly enjoyable way to spend a few hours

Beautiful and lots of fun - somewhat physical...climbing over rocks & boulders. Understand these aren't caverns where you're completely underground, but rather they are caves in a cliff wall. but a real fun way to spend 2-3 hours.
