It was an overcast day so we decided to explore the caves rather than hang out at the beach. What a little treasure!! The hike was beautiful and at one point the view of Georgian Bay was breathtaking (make sure you include the scenic overlook trail...it's an easy walk and worth it). My husband and sons had a blast exploring... More

A great spot! Awesome caves, great hiking trail, with amazing panoramic lookouts over Georgian Bay (worth the price of admission)!

My friend and I had a great time exploring the caves here. Good exercise and a beautiful location. We also checked out the scenic overlook trail which was a nice easy trail after the cave one. The staff were friendly and provided walking sticks and flashlights for cavers.

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
