My family arrived at the conservation area at around 6:30 pm after taking the dirt road to the small parking area. There were no other cars in the parking lot. We took the short trail to the caves and upon our return (20 mins later)...More

The caves are worth checking out if you're in the area. Quite unique and interesting. You'd almost expect bats to fly out at any moment. Easy to get to and maybe a two hour portion of a day itinerary with one or two other attractions...More

Absolutely spectacular trail. Not long, kids friendly. The nature is amazing, in the simmer and in the winter. Birch all around, stony landscape, green scenes - beautiful place!

walking into the woods one remembers Longfellow's "evangeline" "THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green," It is "SOO" peaceful and relaxing, but awesome

Kids loved it, age 7 and 9 Cave’s we’re beautiful and interesting to climb and explore. Recommend downloading parking app MacKay Pay $6 parking Flash lights are fun to bring Bug spray Magnifying glass for close ups of rocks, trees and critters.

We went because the Bruce Caves were so close to where we were staying just outside Wiarton. I probably wouldn't drive very far to visit them because they are nice but not spectacular. The dirt road leading from the main road to the Bruce Caves...More

Some of the wilder places on the Bruce Trail are much more to my liking. This attraction is OK but it was not a special treat.

You can park for free right at the main entrance off the main road. If you drive to the trailhead you have to pay. Park right away. The walk is maybe 500m
