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.

A short hike to the caves. Make sure you wear proper footwear and the caves have lots of jagged rocks and precarious ledges. Prepare kids by reminding them of safety rules before you go. Path has poison ivy. Entrance to the cave path not clearly marked -- it's the one closer to the washrooms and picnic area. Cute little geocache... More

It was a beautiful walk/hike. The weather wasn't great, but the site is spectacular and impressive. A bit scarey too.

We stopped there on our way to Tobermory. We took the trail to the caves and it is very beautiful and quiet. The trail is easy and it takes about 20 minutes (if I remember well) to reach the caves. We had lots of fun exploring the caves expecially the kids. Running shoes needed. The only negative point if it... More

This is a nice side trip that won't take too much time. The entrance to the conservation area is easy to find but as others have mentioned, the road to the trail in is not well marked and is single lane only. The walk to the caves is easy and only take about 5 or 10 minutes. Beautiful cave; not... More
