We opted for the Saturday afternoon pass (a bit cheaper) and did a 1.5 hour circuit which brought us over the Suspension Bridge and up to the viewpoint. Trails well marked and not very busy. We really enjoyed ourselves. I think we would like to go back another time, ski in the morning and snow shoe in the afternoon.

Thank you for your review. The Suspension Bridge is an iconic landmark at Scenic Caves, offering breathtaking views. It’s southern Ontario’s longest footbridge and features a snowshoe trail which crosses over it during the winter. Half day (after 2pm) and full day passes are available. A full day pass gives you access to all the trails for the day (with... More

We've been here three times, twice in summer and once in winter and really enjoyed ourselves every time. In the summer, the caves are a fun experience. We were in a group of three adults (40s) and two kids (8-9 yrs old). Some agility is required in the caves. The kids had a blast exploring the nooks and crannies. There... More

Irene T, Public Relations Manager at Scenic Caves Nature Adventures, responded to this review

Thank you so much for remembering to share last year’s experiences. As you noted, the caves are open in the spring/summer/fall (not in winter). The trail through the caves, caverns and crevasses is uneven, over boulders – in other words, natural. The Suspension Bridge is the longest in southern Ontario and very well engineered, so it is extremely safe. When... More

We visited this place in winter and the view from the lookout point was breathtaking. You can rent snowshoes and skis to make the walk easy. The best part is the suspension bridge covered in snow. It would be one of the best sites in the city.

Thank you Sanchita for your lovely review. As you discovered, Scenic Caves turns into a winter wonderland, offering 27 km of cross country ski trails and 10 km of snowshoe trails. The views in the winter are unparalleled. Southern Ontario’s longest Suspension Bridge remains open virtually year-round (weather permitting) and one of the snowshoe trails crosses over it. You can... More

It was truly breathtaking! I've tried making plans to come during the summer time but never ended up making the trip. I am so glad I decided to come during the winter. To enter the premise, there are two options: snowshoeing or cross country skiing. With my family of four, we opted for the snowshoeing and we finished with minimal... More

Thank you so much Rachel for your enthusiastic five star review. Snowshoeing really is a wonderful winter activity for families. You can explore the trails at your own speed, stop and watch wildlife, soak up the fresh air and listen to the silence of the forest. Breathtaking views can be found throughout the trails – even if it’s not a... More

Easy to find, pleasant staff, well-groomed trails with lots of signage. I would recommend for both snowshoeing or cross country skiing. You can easily spend 2-3 hours on the different trails.

Thank you for your five star review. Located about 1-1/2 to 2 hours from Toronto, we’re an easy daytrip. Because of our high elevation, the unique geographic location provides excellent snow conditions and consistent temperatures. You can easily spend full days exploring the 27 km of cross country ski trails and 10 km of dedicated snowshoe trails. Did you notice... More

It's well worth a 3 hour drive to the Blue Mountains especially when the sun peeks out from the strand of trees. Went with two friends for a great 4-5 hour snow shoe at Scenic Caves. We brought our own equipment and stopped in at the centre for some piping hot fries and soup before heading out. Loved the cozy... More

It was my first time cross country skiing at Scenic Caves. The experience was perfect. The service was wonderful, the trails were in perfect condition and they even had warm up huts along the paths where you could order hot chocolate or coffee.
