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.

We visited the caves with our boys, ages 12 & 10. They are outdoorsy kids, so we spent lots of time exploring every nook and cranny of these amazing caves. There were some hidden passages and holes leading to 'rooms' that most other visitors were walking right past. Bring, or better yet, wear a flashlight (around your head) so you... More

When I heard about these caves I was told they were in the movie Chariots of Fire. Somehow that made me think we'd be on the beach and just walk into a big cave. This was different and yet so much more fun! They are a series of wondrous, eerie caves - you can smell and feel the limestone surround... More

Read about this place before coming up on vacation. Glad we checked it out. So much better than the Collingwood caves, and better value for the money. Fairly inexpensive-$10 for adults and $5 for under 13yrs. Beautiful views, nice hike through the wood, and lots of caverns and caves to explore. Took around 2hrs to explore . Easy to find,... More
