The caves are a very neat sight. The walk there is also fantastic, especially in the fall. The area is humid most of the time so there is moss on nearly every surface. Wear proper footwear for climbing over rocks and the likes and you'll have a great time.

Husband and I came from Inglis Falls via Harrison Park at Owen Sound. Expected to see similar signs. But nooooo. It's a guessing game when you go visit Bruce Caves. First, the roadside sign is inconspicuous, a simple sign and a small parking area. And then the sign at a fork that leads to the conservation area's parking area, and... More

We were expecting sth more impressive..... The trail is not indicated, you have to guess. If you're not wearing good shoes is better not to do it.

This was a great place for a quick visit, but very rocky so decent runners/ boots are a must. It would be tough to get around for some, but we and our 6 year old son enjoyed it. Amazing to see!!

For those frugal sight seers who get turned off but crowds but turned on by neat, Bruces caves are for you. A little out of the way conservation area just outside Wiarton (not on the beaten path) you will find a lovely short walk to a spectacular natural phenomenon. What awaits is a huge cave you can walk all the... More

Wish I had more mobility, younger people and kids would love this. Caves were really big but hard to get to for people with mobility issues

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.
