These caves are only a few minutes down the road from the Waterview property and well worth the 10 minute hike through the lush and quiet forest. The caves are open structures and don't require repelling or climbing but are impressive in their formation. A good photo op for the scrapbook.

Went with the kids and they loved exploring the caves There is an area where you can climb in behind rocks and climb out the other side Just a short walk in from the parking area Very nice Had a fun day and it's a very scenic drive The road in is a little rough but otherwise ok

It's a nice little hike. Nice woods and rock. The graffiti is definitely distracting. The best thing is that it's quiet. Hiking in a huge line of people (ie flower pot island) is much less enjoyable even if the place is amazing. It's worth it to drop by if you are nearby.

These caves were amazing! They were also very big and rocky. It is about a 1km walk to the caves but the walk is worth it!

I can't believe that this has been in my back yard for so long before I took advantage of its serene environment. A wonderful morning spent walking with my daughter for Mother's day 2013.Very picturesque.

We snowshoed into Bruces Caves in late March. It wasn't very crowded of course and there was almost 1 metre of packed snow. There was no one attending the park, but that was to be expected because of the season. We had a great hike for about 1.5 - 2 hours. We'll definitely go back during the summer.

Every time I see these caves it is a wonder. We have visited many times and take others there to see the natural beauty of the place. Easy hike, so beautiful, but watch your step on the trail you may be looking up when the next rock or tree root will catch your toe. Splendid place!!

Loved seeing the caves. A nice walk through the woods. You could chose if you wanted a long or short hike. The caves are a short walk in and if you walk around, you can get up top and follow the Bruce Trail along the escarpment. Awesome views and we found a porcupine in tree keeping an eye on things!

First time walking this trail. No map at the entrance, we assumed it's just like a normal trail, we'll be back automatically, almost got lost in the trail. Finally we went back from the same trail. It was 19:45! If it's not an auto - back trail, there should be a map in the entrance.
