Bruce Trail Caves near Wiarton

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

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

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

The caves here are massive. As we were hiking along the Bruce Trail we climbed down the escarpment to view the caves. It was a hot day and the caves were nice and cool inside!

You travel perhaps five minutes drive on a bumpy road to the parking lot, and then it is a ten minute walk to the caves. Caves are interesting, although you have to be somewhat agile to see everything. Movie from 80's "Quest for Fire" had scenes filmed here. Great trillium viewing on our walk in last Saturday.

This is a nice hike. Bring a lunch and spend a few hours, or you can see it in one to two hours if your rushed. No cost. Interesting caves. Nice views.

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.
