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.

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
