interesting hiking and beautiful vistas of Georgian bay. The rocks actually get very cold deep down. The crevices can go for a long way. The hiking is not too difficult either. We are in our mid 50's and were able to do it quite easily.

I can't even talk about the caves cause we never made it. We took the slow 10 minute drive in on a one lane pot hole filled road. Once we reached the parking lot in the middle of the bush (and by parking lot I mean large gravel clearing), we encountered a pay by your phone parking sign. That's right.... More

This is a short and easy hike for children. The caves are interesting but better hiking around Lion's Head.

Great place to hike around and tour some caves, bring our climbing shoes so you can climb up onto the rocks and look around.

Tired of being trapped inside on a rainy day so we thought to try the Bruce caves. It was raining but the trees kept us quite sheltered. You definitely need runners as it is a hike and rocky. The parking lot is small and space is limited. You do have about a 10 minute walk until you reach the first... More

Great Canadiana to see. Enjoy this area so much!! It's quiet and even in high tourist time you can enjoy walking through this space and not feel crowded or rushed. Great place to visit.

Awesome place to spend a few hours or an afternoon. Hiking trails and cave exploring a big thumbs up from my guys. Road into area is quite pot holey so go slow. Also very narrow so watch for oncoming cars, not much room to move over. Best thing is that it is free and very picturesque if you enjoy taking... More

We enjoyed an hour long hike through a wooded area that led to the caves. We had fun climbing and exploring.

The caves are OK. I say that because they are full of graffiti. The road to get to the caves is very bumpy. It can also only fit one car so you need to drive very cautiously. We had no trouble finding the caves, but I think we were just lucky. Other people in the parking lot had been lost.... More
